Transfer Credits

Transfer of Credits from Outside of Rutgers University

At least 24 of the 30 credits required for graduation must be taken at Rutgers School of Criminal Justice (SCJ). A student who has taken graduate credits outside Rutgers but who has not applied them to another graduate degree may, after the successful completion of 12 credits, petition the M.A. Academic Oversight Committee to accept 6 credits toward the degree requirements. The following requirements must be met:
  • Courses must be related to the study of criminal justice.
  • The student must have earned a grade of B or better in the course being transferred, and neither Pass nor Satisfactory is acceptable.
  • Courses may not include work for a thesis, independent study, or research.
  • Only graduate-level courses will be accepted for transfer.
  • The credits will not have been used toward another degree.
In applying for transfer credit, a student must obtain an official transcript of the grades to be transferred and complete a transfer credit form, which is available in the SCJ Office of Academic Programs and Student Services. The transfer credit form and the official transcript should be submitted to the Office of Academic Programs and Student Services. If the transfer is approved, the registrar's office will record the transfer of the credits on the student's transcript.

Transfer of Credits for Rutgers Graduate Classes Outside of SCJ


A student interested in taking Rutgers graduate classes outside of SCJ will need to seek permission from the M.A. program director before enrolling in the class. Students will need to submit a written request and a copy of the course syllabus to the M.A. Academic Oversight Committee for review and approval.
  • Courses must be related to the study of criminal justice.
  • The student must have earned a grade of B or better in the course.
  • Courses may not include work for a thesis, independent study, or research.
  • Only graduate-level courses will be accepted for transfer.
  • The credits will not have been used toward another degree at SCJ.
M.A. students with Rutgers graduate credits completed prior to admission may petition the M.A. Academic Oversight Committee to review up to 6 of these credits toward the degree requirements (same rules as immediately above apply).

Transfer of Credits for Nondegree Students at SCJ

Nondegree students at SCJ admitted into the master of arts program may transfer up to 12 credits of graduate coursework toward their M.A. degree. SCJ graduate courses will only be eligible for transfer provided that the student earned a grade of B or better.
