- To Apply: Students must submit an online application for external transfer through Rutgers Admissions. The application deadline for a Fall/September admission is February 1 and for Spring/January admission is October 1.
- Application Inquiries: Transfer applications to the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy are processed by Rutgers Undergraduate Admissions. You should be able to find most information through Rutgers Undergraduate Admissions websites including additional information for international applicants. For questions about your application status or other issues related to the application process, please consult with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions directly.
- Students must complete the prerequisite courses for their desired program of study with grades of C or better, as well as, achieve a minimum 2.50 cumulative grade point average and at least 30 degree credits. An Associate’s Degree from a two-year college is not required for transfer, but highly recommended.
- Students must submit all the credentials required for the transfer application.
- Many students choose to take the prerequisite courses from a New Jersey Community College (NJCC) in order to meet the transfer requirements. For course planning at a NJCC, students should refer to NJ Transfer for course equivalencies between the NJCCs and Rutgers-Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.
Transfer Credits and Course Evaluation
- Transfer Evaluation: Official transfer credit evaluations will be completed after students have been admitted and have confirmed their intention to enroll. Once we receive your transcripts and documents after you accept the admission, we will start to process your transfer credit evaluation.
- Transfer Credits: The transfer evaluation is done course-by-course. In general, credits are granted for courses taken at accredited colleges and universities if they are the equivalent of courses offered by Rutgers University and a grade of at least a “C” has been earned. Up to 60 degree credits can transfer from community college. Up to 90 degree credits can transfer from another four year college or university. The maximum combined number of transfer credits is 90.
- Transferring from NJCCs: Students should refer to NJ Transfer for course equivalencies between a NJ Community College and Rutgers – Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. In order to get the most transfer credits when coming from a NJCC, students should consider completing an Associate of Arts (AA) or an Associate of Science (AS) degree.
