Definition of a Transfer Student

Rutgers considers students transfer applicants only if they are high school graduates or equivalency degree holders who will have completed at least 12 college credits since high school and before their expected date of entry. This excludes current high school students who are also taking college courses.Transfer students use the same application as all other students.

About Transfer Credit
Credit evaluations are typically completed after transfer students have been admitted and confirmed their intention to enroll. In general, credit is granted for courses taken at accredited colleges and universities if they are the equivalent of courses offered by Rutgers University and students earned a grade of at least a C. However, individual courses are evaluated by the faculty and/or the school/college before credit is officially granted. You may find it helpful to review Rutgers' course content information in our catalogs and on our NJ Transfer web site (for New Jersey community college students).
