Course Equivalency Page
Important Notice for Transfer Students:
As of Fall 2008, the course Intermediate Algebra will NO LONGER be accepted in transfer as counting for earned hours towards graduation.
As of Fall 2009, the course Computer Literacy will NO LONGER be accepted in transfer as counting for earned hours towards graduation.
Note: Both of these courses are equivalent to basic skill level courses at Rowan and therefore no credit is granted.
An equivalency is part of an articulation agreement between two institutions facilitating accurate and efficient transfer between those institutions. An equivalency is a determination by both the community college and the university that a specific course(s) at one institution is equivalent in content and credit to a specific course(s) at the other institution. By comparing equivalencies, official transcripts can be easily evaluated to grant transfer credit, which apply toward degree requirements at RU. Transfer students can expect a "seamless" transfer if following a transfer plan based on equivalencies.
Note: An established equivalency guarantees the transfer of courses between institutions. However, the right to determine how a course applies to degree requirements is reserved by specific programs.
Additional transcripts received after the initial transcript evaluation are processed and completed on a first-in basis. Updates to your student record after the initial transcript evaluation should be reviewed on Self Service Banner.
Current students sending updated transcripts should send them to:
