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.
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 common reason for loss of credits when you transfer is a change of major. Each major has specific course requirements and meeting those requirements can take longer than anticipated, depending on how your credits transfer in. Occasionally, other schools have degree requirements that are very different from our own. You can always contact our Academic Advising office with any questions or concerns!
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.
