Intercollege Transfer Policy (College-to-College)

The following policy pertains to students enrolled in one New Brunswick/Piscataway college who wish to transfer to another New Brunswick/Piscataway college. Such an intercollege transfer is commonly termed a "college-to- college transfer." The college-to-college transfer online application and complete information about application deadlines, procedures, and requirements are available at

1.Students may seek a college-to-college transfer between any of the liberal arts colleges and professional schools. Minimum grade-point averages for acceptance may vary from year to year and from program to program, as determined by the admitting college. Housing may not be available for a college-to-college transfer, especially if the student transfers outside the affiliated college.

2.Students may apply to only one college at a time in a college-to-college transfer.

3. The college-to-college transfer application period is from October 1 to November 15 for the spring term and from February 1 to May 15 for the fall term (March 15 for Mason Gross School of the Arts, which requires an audition and/or interview). There are no college-to-college transfers in the spring term to Mason Gross School of the Arts (with the exception of the music and dance departments) or the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy. For the Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-New Brunswick, the application period for the fall term is from November 1 to December 15 (spring term is not available). The approval of college-to-college transfers is based on the student`s previous performance.

4.Students in their first term in a liberal arts college ordinarily are not eligible for college-to-college transfer. Students in professional schools, however, may transfer to some liberal arts colleges at the end of their first term.

5.Mason Gross students who are dropped for artistic reasons may seek a college-to-college transfer to any liberal arts college or professional school. The accepting unit determines the conditions and deadlines for a college- to-college transfer under these circumstances.
