Transfer Credits

Transfer students receive an initial transfer evaluation by email once admitted to Rutgers University–Camden and after all official transcripts have been received. An updated transfer evaluation will be sent after you accept your offer of admission.

New Jersey Community College Students

NJ Transfer helps New Jersey community and county college students choose courses that will transfer to four-year colleges and universities. We recommend that you use NJ Transfer to determine if a course offered at a New Jersey community or county college will transfer to Rutgers University. You can also determine if: 

  • there is an equivalent course or courses at Rutgers University;
  • the course satisfies any general education requirements at Rutgers University; or 
  • the course satisfies any requirements for the Rutgers major program of study.

Transfer Credit Evaluations

The Office of New Student Programs handles the initial transfer evaluation. Your credit evaluations will be completed within two to three business days after you have been admitted to Rutgers–Camden and will be emailed to the email address provided on the application. The student should review the credit evaluation carefully for accuracy.

In general, credit is granted for courses taken at accredited colleges and universities if they are the equivalent of courses offered by Rutgers and a grade of at least a C has been earned. 

Credit Appeal Process

If a student disagrees with an assigned equivalency or feels there are any discrepancies, a transfer student may appeal this decision. There are three levels of appeal.

  • A level 1 appeal must be made within 30 days of receiving the evaluation.
  • A level 2 appeal must be made two weeks after the level 1 decision. 
  • A level 3 appeal must be made within two weeks of the level 2 decision.

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.
