Transfer Course/Credit Equivalencies

Rowan University accepts the transfer of credits earned at other institutions of higher education on the basis of course equivalency. Course equivalency is the determination that a course taken at another institution is comparable to a course offered by Rowan University in terms of objectives, learning outcomes, and educational level. Mode of delivery is not a relevant or distinguishing factor in evaluating equivalency. Equivalent courses are accepted and applied to meet program requirements. Non-equivalent courses may be accepted as free electives and count as earned hours toward graduation.  The University evaluates credits based on established equivalencies as well as on an individualized, case-by-case analysis. PLEASE NOTE: Grades earned in courses that are transferred are recorded on the transcript but do not count toward the student’s Rowan University grade point average.

  • Additional Provisions
    • As of Fall 2008, the course Intermediate Algebra is equivalent to a basic skills course and is no longer accepted in transfer as counting for earned hours towards graduation.
    • As of Fall 2009, the course Computer Literacy is equivalent to a basic skills course and is no longer accepted in transfer as counting for earned hours towards graduation.


  • New Jersey Statewide Transfer Agreement
    • The New Jersey Statewide Transfer Agreement is a comprehensive and uniform articulation agreement that provides for seamless transfer from any New Jersey community college to participating New Jersey four-year institutions. Per this Agreement, an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree will satisfy all lower-level General Education requirements for a Bachelor of Arts (B.A) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree, with the exception of major-specific prerequisites or special graduation requirements that were not completed within the associate degree.

  • Rowan Course Equivalents for New Jersey Two-Year Institutions
    In an effort to always provide students, faculty, and staff with the most accurate and up-to-date information, NJ Transfer website will be recognized as the official repository for transfer equivalences for New Jersey community colleges. This means that there is no longer a need to publish or maintain the PDF-equivalent documentation for those same institutions on our Registrar website, especially since discrepancies or delays between these PDFs and the NJTransfer site could lead to the accidental dissemination of out-of-date or erroneous information.
