  Newark Undergraduate Catalog 2016–2018 Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark Admission Transfer Students From Other Institutions  

Transfer Students From Other Institutions

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, 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: Undergraduate-Newark.

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

  29:010:319 and 320  Business Law I and II (for accounting majors)

  21:220:101  Introduction to Economics: Micro

  21:220:102  Introduction to Economics: Macro

  21:220:231  Statistical Methods

  29:623:220  Management Science and Information Systems

  29:620:301  Introduction to Management

  29:630:301  Introduction to Marketing

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.

NJ Transfer

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.
