Transferring from Within Rutgers

Currently matriculated students at Rutgers University (New Brunswick, Camden or Newark) may submit an online school-to-school transfer application through Rutgers Admissions School-to-School Transfer webpage upon reviewing the criteria for admissions. The school-to-school transfer application is NOT permitted for non-matriculated (non-degree) students at Rutgers University – they should apply to Rutgers Admissions as if they are transferring from outside Rutgers. Students must complete a minimum of 12 Rutgers degree credits before the transfer.

 

Previous Rutgers Students

Students who were previously undergraduates and who wish to return to Rutgers for a degree in Labor and Employment Relations should apply through the Re-enrollment Application, whether this would be their first or second Rutgers degree.

If you have questions or wish to discuss what to do in another situation, please contact Professor Paula Voos at pbvoos@work.rutgers.edu.
