  Graduate School–New Brunswick 2010–2012 Academic Policies and Procedures Registration and Course Information Transfer of Credit  

Transfer of Credit

Students may not transfer credits for courses taken at other institutions until they have completed at least 12 credits of graduate courses with a grade of B or better as a matriculated student at the Graduate School–New Brunswick. The courses being transferred must relate directly to a student's program of study at Rutgers, and the student must have received a grade of B or better in them. No credit may be transferred for thesis research work, coursework done as independent study, or work in courses that were not graded. P or S grades are eligible for transfer if equivalent to a grade of B or better and accompanied by a letter of equivalency from the instructor of the course.

Permission is required to transfer credit for courses taken more than six years prior to the application for transfer of credit.

No more than the equivalent of one year of coursework normally may be transferred toward the Ph.D. degree (i.e., 24 credits). No more than 40 percent of the credits required for a master's degree may be transferred from another institution.

Quarter credits will be converted to semester credits by reducing the total by one-third.

For transfer of graduate courses taken as an undergraduate student, a letter is required from the registrar of the institution involved stating that the course or courses were not used toward an undergraduate degree. Applications for transfer of credit are available at the Office of the Graduate School and online.
