Transfer Credit

Transfer Credit Policy

  • You must seek the department’s approval before taking any chemistry courses outside of the New Brunswick campus.
  • You must earn a grade of C or better in order to transfer pre-approved credits.
  • Both Organic Chemistry I (01:160:307) and Organic Chemistry II (01:160:308) must be taken at the same institution.

Two-Step Process of Transfer Credit

The Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology will:

1. Determine that the course in question is equivalent to a course we offer, AND

2. Sign off on a standard transfer-of-credit form from the student’s college.

An advisor in the Dean’s Office of the student’s college can supply this form. The student should obtain a copy of the form, fill it out, and submit it to the Undergraduate Chemistry Program Coordinator, Ms. This email address is being protected from spambots.

Determination of Equivalence

The student should bring a completed Transfer Credit Preapproval Form to the Undergraduate Chemistry Program Coordinator, Ms. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

If the student wishes to transfer a course that has not been preapproved, the student will need to submit a completed Transfer Course Departmental Evaluation Form, preferably by email. The email should include the following information:

  • Name, RUID, and Rutgers e-mail (in case we more information)
  • Name of college/university at which the course was taken
  • Catalog number and title of the course
  • Date when course was taken
  • A syllabus (list of topics or chapters in a textbook) for the course for the year or, preferably, the semester when the course was taken
  • An indication, possibly from the syllabus or the college catalog, of the intended audience for the course (e.g., general chemistry science majors: organic chemistry for nursing students; non-science majors)
  • The textbook (title, edition, authors)
  • Total number of hours of lecture (e.g., 14 weeks x 2.6 hours/week = 36.4 hours)
  • Total number of hours of recitation
  • Total number of hours of laboratory
  • List of experiments if the course is a lab

Once this information is received, the student will be notified with the department's decision via email.
