Transfer Applicants

TCNJ’s national reputation and recognition continue to blossom, and the growing diversification of students at TCNJ contributes to our total learning experience. A public institution of approximately 6,900 full-time undergraduate students, TCNJ offers a wide-ranging academic menu at a reasonable cost. Small class sizes and close working relationships with professors create an intimate learning environment for students.

TCNJ has become a premiere destination and we are continuing to build a more robust transfer community on campus. Now is the “Golden Age” to transfer to TCNJ as we boast about an 65% acceptance rate for transfer students over the past 3 years. Additionally, over the past 8 years, 85% of our transfer population has graduated on time.
