New Jersey Transfer/Rowan Experience

Students Transferring from a New Jersey Community College to Rowan University

Students who have completed an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree at a New Jersey community college will receive at least 60 hours of transferable credit towards the appropriate Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science Program. Coordination between the student and advisor at the community college is necessary in planning for the transfer to Rowan University.

Specific program requirements may be found in the Rowan University Undergraduate Catalog. With regard to General Education, it is assumed that transfer students will have met all lower division General Education requirements expected of students having completed the first two years of a four-year program. In most situations, students will receive transfer credit for a combination of General Education Courses, Rowan Experience Courses, Free Electives, and Major Requirements totally at least 60 semester hours of credit or approximately one-half of a basic four-year degree. Exceptions to this assumption will occur when students have failed to complete required course work at the community college that is required for entrance into a required Rowan University course. 

For students transferring to the university without completing an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree, it is expected that credits taken at a New Jersey community college that are applicable to an Associate of Arts or and Associate of Science degree, up to a maximum of 60-64 semester hours will be transferable to the basic four-year degree program at Rowan University. Transfer students must meet the specific graduation requirements of the Rowan University degree program to which they seek to transfer. It is expected that through careful planning, the transfer student will be able to meet these requirements within their two years of study at the community college and the following two years of study at Rowan University.
