- Transfer applicants who last attended college more than five years ago are evaluated according to motivation, life experiences, career advancement, and college transcripts.

Transfer of Credits
Rowan University accepts the transfer of credits earned at other higher education institutions on the basis of course equivalency. We determine that a course taken at another institution is comparable to a course offered here in terms of objectives, learning outcomes and educational level.
The Registrar and the academic department for your intended academic program will complete a credit evaluation for you on an individualized, case-by-case basis if and when you have been offered admission and submitted all official transcripts.
About eight weeks after acceptance, and receipt of your official transcripts, your completed credit evaluation will be available online via your student Banner account. Credit evaluations are completed in two stages. General education equivalencies are determined by the Registrar's Office, Division of Credential Evaluations. Major coursework equivalencies are determined by your academic department.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about specific course or advisement issues. To view your transfer credit evaluation, login to Self Service Banner and navigate to Student -> Student Records -> Transfer Credit Report.
If, after reviewing your transfer credit evaluation with your advisor, you disagree with a transfer equivalency at Rowan, please complete the Transfer Credit Appeal Process.
