Transferring from Within Rutgers (School-to-School)

Transfer Application

Students are required to submit an online application through Rutgers Undergraduate Admissions School-to-School Transfer webpage. The online application is open from October 1st to December 7th for spring transfer and from February 1st to July 1st for fall transfer.

Please Note: Students in the School of Arts and Sciences are no longer able to transfer to the Bloustein School. Therefore, SAS students should apply for their major of interest by submitting the joint degree application found here.

Students in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences are no longer able to transfer to the Bloustein School for the public health major. Therefore, SEBS students should apply for the major by submitting the joint degree application found here.


Transfer Requirements

  • A minimum of 30 credits before the transfer
  • Completion of the prerequisite courses for their desired program of study with grades of C or better and a minimum 2.50 cumulative grade point average.
  • Students can be in progress to complete the required course(s) when they submit an application, as long as the course(s) is completed before the application deadline. The application will be reviewed after the grade(s) is posted.

For required courses completed outside of Rutgers, the same guidelines used for external applicants will be applied:

  • Students are required to earn a grade of C or better in order for the credits to transfer to Rutgers-Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.

Transfer Preparation

Prospective transfer students (Rutgers-New Brunswick, Rutgers-Camden or Rutgers-Newark) should consult with an advisor at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy prior to submitting a school to school transfer application. Students should have an understanding of their remaining requirements and the length of time it will take to complete the degree.

Newly Admitted? Congratulations!

After you accept the offer of admission online via Rutgers Undergraduate Admissions indicating you will be attending the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will send your file to University College for an official transfer credit evaluation (if you have any credits earned at another institution). Your Rutgers credits will remain the same.
