Student Appeal Process for Transfer of Credits


This process applies only to students transferring to The College of New Jersey who have completed Associates in Arts (AA) or Associates in Science (AS) degrees from New Jersey public community colleges. The agreement makes it possible for students with AA and AS degrees to transfer into TCNJ with their first two years complete, including all liberal learning (general education) requirements, except when specific courses for major requirements, prerequisites, certification, or accreditation are not included among those completed at the community college. The entire agreement can be found at the link below.

Students wishing to appeal decisions about transfer of credits believed not to be consistent with the agreement must do so in writing within 30 days of receiving the evaluation of transfer credit using one of the forms linked below. This appeal must be addressed to the Director of Records and Registration, who will convene a committee consisting of representatives from the offices of Academic Affairs, Liberal Learning, and Records and Registration. That committee will render a decision with a rationale within 60 days of the receipt of the appeal. The decision of the College is final. The relevant community college will be informed of the nature of the appeal and the College’s decision.
