New to Rutgers?

If you are a new Transfer student, all of the courses you've taken at your previous institutions will be evaluated by the staff in the SAS Transfer Center within several weeks after you accept our offer of admission.

If you are a new First-year student, any transfer courses that you completed while in high school or over the summer before your first year will be evaluated by the SAS First Year Office by the middle of your first semester.

Already a Rutgers student, but interested in taking a course at another school?

Courses that are not taken at Rutgers-New Brunswick are considered transfer courses. In order to register for a course outside of Rutgers-New Brunswick, you'll need to fill out a Transfer Course Preapproval Form and have it approved by the appropriate Rutgers-NB department as well as the SAS Transfer Center

  • The Transfer Course Preapproval Form is for SAS Students ONLY. Students in other schools or colleges (like MGSA, Engineering, RBS, or SEBS) must contact their own academic services office for information on transfer course preapproval.
