How Does This Affect Transfer Students?

According to the Comprehensive State-Wide Transfer Agreement, “An A.A. or A.S. degree from a New Jersey community college will be fully transferable as the first two years of a baccalaureate degree program at New Jersey public four-year institutions.” This means that transfer students who meet the full standards of this agreement are considered to have met the College’s lower-division core curriculum requirements for general education.   

NOTE: Students who transfer under the just cited provision of the State-Wide Transfer Agreement must nonetheless complete Rutgers’ Writing Across the Curriculum requirement, as this is intended as an upper-division writing requirement for general education.  These students also must complete a second concentration at Rutgers Newark.

All other transfer students, with or without an associate’s degree, must complete the Rutgers Newark core curriculum requirements.

Further information for transfer students is available from the Admissions Office.
