Transfer Agreements

Transferring to other colleges

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 utilize NJTransfer, 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.

In 2008 NJ passed transfer legislation that governs how credits are accepted by NJ public four-year colleges. This law, called the Comprehensive Statewide Transfer Agreement (commonly called the "Lampitt Law"), is still in effect and can be viewed on the NJ Transfer website.  Note the law governs the transfer of credits including general education "core" requirements for the public colleges listed as well as some additional private colleges that chose to be part of the agreement.  It covers the AA and AS degrees but not other degree programs such as AAS or AFA degrees.

A few cautions to note:
1. The transfer law does not guarantee admission to any college; a student must be accepted through the normal transfer admission process.
2. The transfer law does not remove the need to research degree requirements as there are sometimes prerequisite courses needed for particular majors. Use the recommended transfer program (RTP) feature on NJ Transfer to view the precise course recommendations for each major.
