You are considered an international student if you hold, or will need to obtain a non-immigrant visa such as a student visa (F-1) or an exchange visitor visa (J-1). You are considered a domestic applicant if you are a U.S. citizen, U.S. permanent resident, pending permanent residency, NJ Dream Act/DACA and undocumented.
- If you have completed 12 or more college credits at another institution at the time of your application, you are considered a transfer student.
- Submit your application.
- Submit your transcript. All official transcripts will be required prior to the beginning of the semester. We also accept Foreign Credential Evaluation Report from approved credential evaluation agencies.
- Submit standardized language test score - a TOEFL minimum score of 70, IELTS minimum score of 6.0, Pearson Test of English (PTE) minimum score of 50 or Duolingo test minimum score of 120 for traditional admissions. International students must submit standardized test scores unless they are exempt (View Language Policy).
- * If you don't meet the English required scores please see Conditional Admissions
- You can upload the required documents to your admissions portal once you submit your application. Your admissions portal will always have the most up-to-date status of your application. To check the status of your application, simply log in to your portal.
- Transfers with only 12 academic credits at the time of application, please submit your high school transcript. If your document is not translated to English a certified English translation is necessary. These applicants are evaluated using the freshman admission standards and college transcripts.
Special Note: You will receive your admissions decision based on your unofficial transcript that you can upload through your application portal; however, you still need to submit your official college transcript(s) in order to receive formal credit evaluation and other advising related services.
Transfer students offered admission will receive a credit evaluation by the registrar and the academic department. The official transcript is needed to complete the Registrars evaluation. Once that evaluation is completed, an advisor will answer questions about transferring credits from another institution to Rowan University.
Please submit official transcript(s) by mail to:
Office of International Admissions
Enterprise Center 3rd Floor
225 Rowan Blvd
Glassboro, New Jersey 08028
If you are at an institution that sends official electronic transcripts using a PDF format, please have them sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
