I’m thinking about transferring to Rutgers from a NJ county/community college. How can I determine if the science courses I’m taking at the county/community college are the correct ones for the biology major at Rutgers?

Visit the webpage of the New Jersey Transfer Initiative and follow the instructions. This website will help you determine how each of your NJ county/community college courses will transfer to Rutgers. Be aware that this website works only for county/community colleges in New Jersey.

One of the most frequent questions that transfer students have is what biology elective courses can they transfer. The answer is none. All biology elective courses (with or without lab) required for the biology degree at Rutgers-Camden are 300-level courses. Community colleges do not offer 300 level courses.
