Transfer Credits

Schedule an appointment to receive a no-obligation credit evaluation. Call 609-896-5036. You will need transcripts from all of the colleges and universities you previously attended.

The exact number of credits that will transfer will vary depending on your program; however, Rider recognizes most equivalent course work from accredited colleges and universities. In general, for any class to be eligible for transfer the course must meet the following conditions:

  • A grade of a “C” or higher is earned
  • The course was completed at an accredited institution
  • The course is 100 level or higher*
  • The Dean’s Office in each school has final approval of transfer credit
  • If you attend a community college in New Jersey, you can also review credit transfer information at the NJ Transfer site.
