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.

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 sent to the email address provided on the application. After receiving the credit evaluation, please review it carefully for accuracy.

In general, credit is granted for courses taken at accredited colleges and universities if courses are the equivalent 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.

NJ 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.

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 60 credits and half the credits remaining to complete a bachelor’s degree. During course registration, 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, the office of new student programs will determine which credits are eligible to transfer. Students will be required to take as many credits necessary to complete general and major requirements.

Transferring from another four-year institution?

We make it easy to make the switch.

If you are transferring from another four-year college, you can earn up to 90 credits toward your bachelor's degree at Rutgers–Camden. The last 30 credits of the degree must be earned at Rutgers–Camden.
