Transfer Course Policies

All of the courses you wish to have transferred from another institution outside of Rutgers—New Brunswick will have to be evaluated by the Program in Criminal Justice, as well as the staff in the Transfer Center. This must be completed BEFORE you register for any courses that you wish to transfer. All courses eligible for transfer must have earned a grade of “C” or better. Any course earning below a “C” (2.00) will not be transferred. Moreover, all transfer courses that successfully transfer will appear on your Rutgers transcripts as earning credit, but no grades will appear for these transfer courses. Transfer course(s) grades will not be included in the Rutgers cumulative grade-point average. [Similarly, the Program in Criminal Justice does not factor in transfer course(s) grades into the major GPA for Criminal Justice.]

 

In order to take a course outside of Rutgers and transfer those credits earned toward the Criminal Justice major, you must first complete a Transfer Course Preapproval Form. This form must be submitted to the Academic Advisor before registering for any intended courses outside of Rutgers [within the Criminal Justice field].

Limits on Transfer Credits

 

The following limits are set on the maximum number of degree credits transferrable into the School of Arts and Sciences: No more than 60 credits from two-year institutions, no more than 90 credits from four-year institutions, and no more than 12 of the last 42 credits earned for the degree may be transfer credits. A maximum of 90 credits may be transferred from any combination of two- and four-year institutions.

 

The Program in Criminal Justice does not accept credit for Winter session courses. The Program in Criminal Justice also does not accept credits earned for internships as transfer credits.

 

Online courses that are submitted for transfer evaluation and any other courses that were not offered in traditional classroom format will be awarded transfer credit only upon evaluation and recommendation from individual academic departments.

 

Extension, professional, military technical training, and continuing education courses typically have informal or no prerequisites and are designed to provide discrete, targeted knowledge rather than being a part of a broader liberal arts curriculum. As such, many of these courses are not awarded credit in S.A.S. unless they are clearly equivalent to courses that are already offered.

 

Students completing courses at Newark or Camden are subject to restrictions on the maximum number of credits that the Program in Criminal Justice will accept to count towards the C.J. major. Students will be allowed to use approximately 9 transfer credits to count toward the Criminal Justice major for courses taken at Newark and/or Camden.

Courses Taken at New Jersey Community Colleges

 

For those students who wish to take a course at an accredited New Jersey community college, be sure to access NJTransfer.org for a wealth of information; furthermore, this website has a section where you can go to evaluate how your courses are going to transfer to Rutgers. To evaluate how your courses would transfer (if at all), click here

 

Utilize the above website as a tool in selecting courses to take outside of Rutgers, such as during summer sessions. However, you must still complete a Transfer Course Preapproval Form regardless of what NJTransfer.org dictates. Always complete this form and have it signed by the Academic Advisor; furthermore, be sure to complete this form prior to registering for any outside courses.

Courses Taken at Newark or Camden

 

For those students who wish to take a course at Rutgers Newark or Rutgers Camden can not assume that any and all courses will be transferred unequivocally to the School of Arts and Sciences at Rutgers New Brunswick. Any course you might wish to complete at either campus must still be evaluated, and you must complete a Transfer Course Preapproval Form and have it signed by the Academic Advisor in advance of registering for any course.

 

What happens when you take a course at Newark or Camden? Upon successful completion of the Transfer Course Preapproval Form, and also upon successful completion of the course itself, grades are posted to your transcript as any other class from New Brunswick. The coding of the course will remain with its original Newark/Camden code and that does not change. For major purposes, Degree Navigator will pick up the course with its Newark or Camden coding and count it towards the appropriate requirement of the C.J. major. If for some reason Degree Navigator does not automatically pick up a Newark/Camden course, please contact the Academic Advisor who will manually edit Degree Navigator so that it reflects the appropriate course(s).

 

See the Transfer Courses section for a list of courses that transfer successfully upon completed submission of a Transfer Course Preapproval Form prior to registering/completing the course itself. The list for Newark and Camden courses do not reflect coding changes; rather, the list shows what requirements of the C.J. major courses will satisfy. [Lists are not definitive or exhaustive, and are often changing as courses are being added or removed.]

 

**Students taking courses at Newark and/or at Camden will only be allowed

to use approximately 9 transfer credits to count toward the Criminal Justice major.**
