In most cases your credits will transfer to any college in the country, if you have a) taken the appropriate courses or program of study for your intended major at a 4-year school or b) achieved a “C” grade or better in each course.
Occasionally, some credits do not transfer. You can avoid or minimize this possibility by working closely with your RVCC Academic Advisor and Transfer Counselor when selecting your courses. You can also refer to the website of the college of your interest, or utilizeNJTransfer, a website that helps you transfer community college courses in the State of New Jersey. A selection of transfer reference books and brochures is available in the Transfer and Career Services Department located in the College Center room C-116.
Transferring to NJ state colleges
|Graduates of approved transfer programs in New Jersey County Colleges “shall be guaranteed admission to a state college,” according to state policy. While admission is guaranteed to a state college, rather than a specific school, experience indicates that students, who work closely with a RVCC Transfer Counselor when selecting their courses and have achieved a competitive grade point average, gain admission to the state college of their choice|
