You’ve completed your associate’s degree at a county or community college and you’re ready to earn your bachelor’s degree. Or perhaps you’re enrolled at another university and are looking to make a change. Now’s the time to transfer to Rutgers University–Camden to earn your Rutgers degree.

You are considered a transfer student if you are a high school graduate who will have completed at least 12 college credits after high school and before your expected date of entry into Rutgers.

If you seek to transfer into the Rutgers School of Business–Camden, you must have 24 college credits completed at the time of application. The Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden has specific requirements for transfer candidates.

Transfer students must complete a minimum of 30 credits while at Rutgers–Camden in order to be awarded a Rutgers degree. 

Community college grad? We make transferring easy!

Transferring to Rutgers University–Camden is seamless, thanks to our comprehensive articulation agreements with every county and community college in New Jersey. Because of these statewide agreements, transferring to Rutgers–Camden with an associate’s degree is easy.

If you have earned an A.A. or A.S. degree from a New Jersey county or community college, you will enter Rutgers–Camden as a junior with half the credits remaining to complete a bachelor’s degree. Upon admission, students will meet with an adviser for a full credit evaluation to determine the specific graduation requirements you will need to complete a major and graduate. 

If you have earned at least 12 credits at a county or community college but have not earned a two-year degree, you are still eligible to apply as a transfer student. If admitted to Rutgers–Camden, our advisers will determine which credits are eligible to transfer. Students will be required to take as many credits necessary to complete general and major requirements.
