Transfer students are defined as any student who has completed at least 12 credits of coursework at a college or university other than Rutgers. International transfer students may be asked to provide additional information based on their experiences, including those who are transferring as part of an approved double degree program.
Incoming undergraduate transfer students who have completed college level coursework outside of the United States will need to have their transcripts evaluated by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) approved provider before transcripts can be evaluated for equivalencies. Additionally, any courses provisionally approved in the transcript evaluation process will still require faculty review of a syllabus or course description. If a syllabus/description is unavailable, students will be asked to provide as much detail as possible including but not limited to a detailed description, selection of course work, and books with chapters covered throughout the semester of instruction. Double degree students are waived from this requirement.
All syllabi must be translated into English before they can be evaluated by an instructor. The Biology Department at Rutgers requires a syllabus to be translated by a professional service and not through Google translate or other form of machine translation. If you require financial support for translation services, please contact an OGE advisor. Please note, only true financial emergencies will be considered.
Translation at Rutgers
The Rutgers Language Bank offers students, faculty, and staff translation services performed by university volunteers, including other students. The transfer community is welcome to explore this as a translation option with the knowledge that more information may be requested by the academic department.
