Transfer Admission Requirements

Admission to Rowan University as a transfer student is competitive. Any applicant who has completed 12 or more college credits at another institution is considered a transfer student. Students seeking a second bachelor's degree are also considered transfer students, whether they graduated from Rowan or another institution. 

Most programs require a minimum 2.0 GPA for admission. However, a 2.0 GPA does not guarantee admission due to competition for available openings. Students currently enrolled in a New Jersey community college should complete their associate's degree.

Transfer applicants with less than 24 credits completed at the time of application must submit their high school transcript and SAT scores. These applicants are evaluated using the freshman admission standards and college transcripts. Admission decisions for transfer applicants who've attended college more than five years ago are based on motivation, life experiences, career advancement and college transcripts.

Transfer students offered admission will receive a credit evaluation by the registrar and the academic department. Once that evaluation is completed, an advisor will answer questions about transferring credits from another institution to the University.

Application and financial aid deadlines for transfer students are the same as freshmen application deadlines.

If your college sends electronic transcripts using PDF format, please have them sent to electronic-transcripts@rowan.edu.
