Transfer Students

Transfer or Pre-Approval of Courses Taken Elsewhere

Q. As a transfer student arriving at Rutgers, how do I get my courses taken elsewhere evaluated for credit at Rutgers?

A. See the Head advisor. For courses taken outside the state of New Jersey bring in a syllabus if possible.


Q. As a continuing Rutgers student, when and how do I get approval of courses I wish to take elsewhere?

A. Before registering for a summer course in mathematics taken elsewhere, see the Head Advisor to review your prerequisites and the acceptability of the course. No course given in a session of less than 5 weeks is accepted.


  • Undergraduate students at Rutgers (New Brunswick/Piscataway) MUST have prior written approval from their college (or SAS) before taking a course elsewhere that they want to transfer onto their Rutgers transcript. If such approval is not obtained, no credit will be awarded.
  • The Rutgers New Brunswick/Piscataway Math Department will not approve the transfer of any 3 or more credit course offered in any Session (Summer, Winter, or other) lasting less than 5 weeks.
  • The Rutgers New Brunswick/Piscataway Department will not approve the transfer of courses taught at sites off the campus of the college offering them.
  • Online and hybrid courses are acceptable on the condition that the institution documents that at least 70 percent of the course grade is determined by proctored exams given on the college campus.
