New Brunswick Undergraduate Catalog 2020-2022 Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-New Brunswick Academic Policies and Procedures Academic Credit Dual-Enrollment  


Dual-Enrollment Coursework. Under New Jersey state law, approved courses in high school may be taken for college credit. Students should consult with the Business School first-year dean in the fall to determine if these courses qualify for credit at Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-New Brunswick and whether or not they actually provide an adequate background as a prerequisite to the next level course at Rutgers.

Please note that alone cannot be used to determine course equivalencies for courses taken at NJ community colleges while the student is in high school or for courses taken at the high school and recorded on a college transcript. Many courses with Rutgers equivalents in may transfer as general elective credit or may not transfer at all if taken while the student was in high school. All transcripts of college-level coursework must be sent to the Business School Office of the Dean for a complete evaluation. These evaluations normally take place in the first semester at Rutgers.

Dual-enrollment courses reported on a college transcript will be considered for Rutgers credit, subject to the following requirements:

  • No more than four dual-enrollment courses (not to exceed 15 credits) may transfer into the Rutgers Business School.
  • No more than two dual-enrollment courses per semester are transferable.
  • Minimum grade that must be earned is a B.
  • If the student was concurrently enrolled in the parallel Advanced Placement (AP) course for that academic discipline, and scored below a 4 on the AP examination, no academic credit will be considered for the dual-enrollment course.

There will be no exceptions to these dual-enrollment policies. For questions about dual-enrollment credits, please contact the RBS first-year dean at
