Transfer Credit

A student who has transferred from another accredited institution receives credit for all courses in which a grade of C (2.000) or better was received. The courses need not conform to courses offered at either Cook College or Rutgers provided they are not designated below the 100 (or remedial) level and are recognized as part of a student's graduation requirements at the college from which the student is transferring. Grades from such courses are not included in the student's cumulative grade-point average. This regulation applies both to transfer credit granted at the time of admission and to any summer or special courses taken outside of Rutgers while the student is a candidate for a degree at Cook College.

University regulations require that at least 30 of the last 42 credits must be completed at Rutgers.

Credit will not be granted for courses taken at another institution during a period of disciplinary suspension from the university.

Students may elect to remove courses taken at Rutgers as nonmatriculating students while enrolled in high school from the computation of their degree credits and cumulative grade-point average. Such courses and grades remain on the student's transcript with an "E-credit" designation and do not fulfill college or program requirements.

None of Cook College's programs of study awards credits on the basis of College Level Entrance Program subject tests administered by the College Entrance Examination Board. CLEP subject tests may be reviewed by other university departments for course equivalency credit.

An official transcript of all course work taken at other institutions of higher learning is required whether or not transfer credit is requested. Students should be aware that since some programs at Cook College include courses that may be unique to the college, some transfer credits may be accepted as excess unspecified electives, resulting in the transfer student needing more than the minimum of 128 credits required for graduation. Matriculated students wishing to take courses outside of Rutgers must have prior approval from the Office of Academic and Student Programs.

The credits and grades for approved courses taken at any division of Rutgers while matriculating at Cook College (including specific courses taken under the auspices of consortium agreements with other colleges and universities) are included in the cumulative grade-point average.
