Conditions of Enrollment for Transfer Students

We welcome your admission to Rutgers University for Fall (September) 2022.

When you enroll at Rutgers, you will need to understand the conditions under which you have been admitted and complete each of the items below.

  • Acknowledge your admission and tell us whether or not you will enroll through your Application Portal by May 1, 2022, or within one week of the date of your admission notification, whichever is later.

  • Submit the $150 acceptance fee through your Application Portal.

  • Request your college registrar submit final official transcripts of all coursework you have completed as soon as your current semester courses are completed and all grades are recorded. Official transcripts from any college attended are required. Final official records must include certification of any diplomas or degrees and should be sent as soon as they are available, but no later than June 1, 2022. Read through instructions on how to send final official transcripts.

  • Note: Your enrollment at Rutgers is contingent upon satisfactory completion, with no significant decline in grades, of all academic work still in progress when your application was reviewed and that all information provided on your application was complete and true. When you accept our offer of admission, we will check your file to verify that all of your high school and college transcripts have been received and are official. If your final official records are not received and/or are not consistent with the records with which you were admitted, your admission may be revoked.

  • Review and comply with the Rutgers Student Code of Conduct.

  • Follow all instructions about placement testing, registration, and orientation requirements. Information about these important steps will be communicated to you later and will be available through the myRutgers Dashboard once you activate your NetID, accept an offer of admission, and pay the acceptance fee.

  • Meet all of the enrollment provisions outlined in your Conditions of Enrollment and on the myRutgers Dashboard within the timeframes indicated. You are responsible for making sure that we receive all required credentials. Please use your Rutgers Application Portal and your myRutgers Dashboard to track your progress through these and all other required steps to enrollment.

  • All enrolling students are required to submit a Pre-Entrance Immunization Record, including COVID-19 vaccine documentation or exemption request by June 1, 2022. If you accepted your offer of admission after this date, you must submit your COVID-19 vaccination record or exemption request within seven calendar days of accepting our offer. Additional information will be available online.

Additional Conditions for All Transfer Students

  • For transfer credit consideration, colleges in the US where your courses were completed must be accredited by one of the major regional accrediting authorities recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (chea.org). They are Middle States (MSCHE), New England (NEASC-CIHE), North Central (NCA-HLC), Southern (SACS), and Western (ACCJW-WASC).

  • If your university transcript is in a language other than English, please have your international college transcripts evaluated by a NACES-approved translation service such as World Education Services (WES) so that your chosen Rutgers school may begin your credit evaluation.

Additional Conditions for New Jersey Transfer Students

  • EOF – If you participated in the New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) program at your previous college and would like to be considered for continuation in EOF at Rutgers, please send a copy of the EOF Transfer Form from the EOF director’s office at your previous college.

  • NJ STARS – If you were an eligible NJ STARS student at your NJ Community College and wish to be considered for NJ STARS II benefits at Rutgers, you must meet all program eligibility requirements as stated by the Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA).
