More for Transfer Applicants
Who is a Transfer Student?
You are considered a transfer student if you are a high school graduate/GED holder who will have completed at least 12 college credits since leaving high school and before your expected date of entry into Rutgers. (Current high school students who are also taking college courses during high school should apply as first-year students.) Transfer students use the same application as all other students.

About Transfer Credit
Credit evaluations are completed after transfer students have been admitted and have confirmed their intention to enroll. In general, credit is granted for academic courses taken at accredited colleges or universities which are the equivalent of courses offered by Rutgers, provided a grade of at least a C has been earned. Students who have taken courses at any New Jersey county or community college should visit to immediately view how those courses will transfer.

Individual courses are evaluated by the faculty (in the case of direct course equivalency) and the school/college (for the transfer of credit when a direct departmental equivalent does not exist) before credit is granted. You may find it helpful to review Rutgers’ course content information in our catalogs and on the NJ Transfer website (for New Jersey community college students).
