Transferring Your Existing Academic Credits to Jersey College

A grade of “C” or better or their respective equivalents (i.e., numeric grade) is required. Credit will not be awarded for Pass/Fail, remedial, College prep, or non-College level courses. Coursework must have been completed in the last five (5) years. Students who seek credit for courses older than five (5) years must take and pass a Challenge Exam.

Specific Courses Eligible for Transfer

Credits may be transferred for the following courses, provided they meet academic rigor standards established by Jersey College:

  • Basic Anatomy and Physiology
  • College Algebra
  • Composition I
  • Human Body in Health and Disease with Lab
  • Math for Problem Solving & Research
  • Microbiology
  • Sociology

Transfer Process

Navigating the transfer of academic credits can be complex, but we aim to make it as straightforward as possible. The following sections outline the key steps in the credit transfer process at Jersey College.


Obtain Your Transcripts

Request your transcripts from your previous institution to be sent to Jersey College. Official transcripts are required to be submitted for transfer credit evaluation, and they must be received and reviewed by Jersey College prior to a student’s initial enrollment.


Credit Evaluation

We will evaluate your credits based on the courses you've completed and their alignment with our curriculum. This process typically takes two to three weeks. Course descriptions, objectives, syllabi, projects, examinations, and other documentation may be requested by Jersey College to demonstrate equivalency.


Challenge Exam

Students may be required to take and pass a Challenge Exam to receive transfer credit, especially for courses older than 5 years.
