Transfer Students FAQ
Yes! Stockton guarantees that if you hold an Associate in Arts (AA) or Associate in Science (AS) from a New Jersey community college, or a regionally accredited community college from another state, in a program Stockton offers, we will accept the degree intact. That means that up to 64 credits will transfer. Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degrees will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Your county college transfer counselor has lists of county college courses and their Stockton equivalents.
Any P grade earned for courses taken in the Spring 2020 term at either a regionally-accredited two- or four-year institution will be accepted and applied to the appropriate degree requirement.
The most prevalent reason for loss of credits when you transfer is a change of major. Each major has different course requirements; satisfying them can take longer than anticipated. Occasionally, other schools have degree requirements that are very different from our own. In these cases, speak with the director of the Center for Academic Advising or the coordinator for your major regarding how those credits can be used.
No, except for a few majors. Some may have prerequisite courses, audition, portfolio or GPA requirements. Please consult the Bulletin for details.
Unfortunately, no. Additionally, we are not able to accept credits from certificate granting proprietary institutions, such as computer science institutes or technical business schools that are unaccredited.
The NJ STARS II Program is a continuation of NJ STARS providing successful NJ STARS students at New Jersey county colleges with funding to transfer to a New Jersey four-year college/university to earn a bachelor’s degree. The amount of the NJ STARS II award will be determined after all other State and Federal grants and scholarships are applied, can change annually, and is based on the year the student enrolls at the four-year institution. NJ STARS students must have graduated from a NJ county college with an associate’s degree and a GPA of 3.25 or higher to be eligible. For more information visit www.hesaa.org.
