Transfer students may be accepted into Rutgers Business
School: Undergraduate-Newark (RBS) directly with indication of a business major
on their initial Rutgers University–Newark application.
Those applying from outside Rutgers as transfer students
should apply online through the Office of University Undergraduate Admissions
at http://admissions.rutgers.edu, indicating a major within RBS.
Students transferring from other schools should consult
with admissions counselors to learn if any articulation agreements are in place
to define which courses at the school from which they are transferring are
acceptable for meeting admission requirements. Please note the information on
NJ Transfer. In addition, business courses taken at RBS or any other
institution more than seven years prior to a student's enrollment into RBS will
not be accepted.
As per the transfer credit policy found elsewhere in this catalog, the maximum number of credits transferred may not exceed 90 credits from a
four-year institution, 60-65 of which may be from a two-year college. The
maximum number of credits accepted from a two-year college is the number of credits
required to earn the associate in arts or associate in science degree, not to
exceed 65 credits in any case.
Academic Credit for Transfer Courses
Transfer students who are accepted into Rutgers Business
School: Undergraduate-Newark have their credits evaluated by RBS.
Credit accepted by Rutgers is awarded toward the total
120 credits needed for graduation. However, certain courses in business, while
credited toward the degree, may not be accepted for specific course
requirements in the programs offered by Rutgers Business School:
The following courses are accepted if passed with a grade
of C or better when the syllabus or course description indicates the course is
equivalent to that offered at Rutgers:
29:010:203 Introduction to Financial Accounting
29:010:204 Introduction to Managerial Accounting

No more than 30 business transfer credits will be
accepted toward completion of a program in RBS.
Business courses completed more than seven years prior to
admittance into RBS will not be considered for transfer credit.
Comprehensive Statewide Articulation Agreement
The agreement with New Jersey community colleges and New
Jersey public four-year institutions provides a seamless transition from public
associate to public baccalaureate degree programs and supports the successful
acquisition of baccalaureate degrees by transfer students.
As per the policy found elsewhere in this catalog, students who have completed an A.A. or A.S.
degree from a New Jersey county college in January 2005 or thereafter and who
have completed the required general education curriculum specified in the New
Jersey Comprehensive State-Wide Transfer Agreement as a part of their degree,
will have 60 - 65 degree credits transferred toward a baccalaureate degree
program. These transfer students will be considered to have completed all
lower-division core curriculum requirements, which include all of the
requirements listed under the Degree Requirements section of this catalog
except Writing across the Curriculum.
Under extenuating circumstances, a student may be allowed
to take a course at Rutgers-Newark and transfer the credits back to the
community college in order to earn their degree. Students must get approval in
writing from both institutions prior to taking the course.
Rutgers participates with the NJ Transfer Articulation
System. NJ Transfer is a computerized
data information system designed to ease the transition from these institutions
to Rutgers. Students attending one of New Jersey's two-year colleges can access
the NJ Transfer website to obtain detailed information about transferring to
Rutgers. Students may determine the transferability of the courses they are
completing at their community college.
