Graduate courses completed at other institutions may be accepted for credit at the university. Transient credits refer to credits earned at another institution (including another graduate school within Rutgers) while the student is enrolled at Rutgers University-Camden. Transient credit has to be approved prior to the student enrolling in a course at another institution and should be granted only in exceptional circumstances. Transient credit will not be granted retroactively. Furthermore, the number of transient credits and transfer credits combined cannot exceed one-third of the total credits for graduation.
A course taken for transient credit must satisfy the following requirements:
- The course must have been graded. Neither Pass nor Satisfactory grades can be accepted.
The student must have earned a grade of B or better in the course.
- The course cannot include work for a thesis, independent study, or research.
The course must form a part of the student's program.
The course must be taken at an accredited institution of higher education.
Once the transient credit course has been approved and a grade has been assigned, the student must obtain an official transcript of the grade to be transferred and send the transcript to the graduate school office, where the grade will be reviewed.
