NJ Transfer

Given the rigorous academic standards set by the state’s community colleges, New Jersey colleges now maintain a statewide transfer agreement, which permits a seamless transfer of credits earned at Bergen Community College to any public four-year institution in the state. The law reduces the amount of time (and cost) a student commits to a four-year institution, and simplifies the process of graduating from a community college and moving on to a baccalaureate program. Please note, students must still submit for acceptance into four-year institutions. Additionally, some required prerequisite courses for specific baccalaureate degree programs may need to be taken once the student enrolls at a four-year institution, since they are not offered at the community colleges.
