Transferring Credits from a New Jersey Community College
NJ Transfer is a web-based data information system maintained by Rutgers University to assist prospective students from New Jersey community colleges. We invite you to use NJ Transfer to determine if a course offered at a New Jersey community college you attend will transfer to the College of Nursing.
The College of Nursing awards degree credit for advanced placement scores of 4 and 5. A comprehenisive list of advanced placement exams and scores, and the Rutgers degree credit that is awarded based on those scores can be found at: http://sasundergrad.rutgers.edu/academics/academic-credit/advanced-placement.
Credit earned by advanced placement is not computed into the cumulative GPA. If you have taken AP tests and they are not yet included in your academic record, please have the score report sent to the Office of Student Services, 180 University Avenue, Newark, New Jersey 07102.
