Transfer Students

Students who have attended other colleges or universities and who wish to receive a transfer credit evaluation must submit to the Admissions Office official transcripts in sealed envelopes from the previous higher education institutions. The Office of Records and Registration will evaluate and grant transfer of credit after the applicant has been matriculated. The student shall be notified regarding what credits have been accepted for transfer.

Per the Comprehensive State-Wide Transfer Agreement, “All decisions made with respect to the transfer process shall be based on the principle of equivalence of expectation requirements for native and transfer students.” Upon individual review of exceptional cases, transfer credits may be granted from non-accredited institutions or through other forms of post-secondary education.

Courses completed at a regionally accredited college or university, with a grade of C (2.0) or above will be evaluated for transfer of credit provided the courses are applicable to the applicant’s program at County College of Morris (CCM). Upon individual review, CCM could accept a grade of D in certain programs for some coursework. Upon individual review of exceptional cases, transfer credits may be granted from non-accredited institutions or through other forms of postsecondary education. Transfer students must complete at least 30 credits total and at least half of the credits in the major at CCM to receive a degree. Additionally, at least one half of the credits for a certificate must be completed at CCM. Grades received at other institutions will not be used in computing the cumulative grade point average at CCM.

In some cases, a grade of D will not fulfill prerequisites for higher level coursework.

Reverse Credit Transfer

Matriculated students who complete a minimum of 30 credits at CCM and transfer to another accredited college or university are eligible to have future credits earned at the institution to which they transfer apply towards the completion of their declared CCM associate degree. Students must have completed at least half of the credits from their major at CCM. The reverse credit transfer may be arranged by the student requesting that the transcript be sent for the first two consecutive terms of enrollment at the college/university to CCM. The reverse credit transfer may also be arranged by CCM through formal agreements with select colleges and universities.  Students may have seven years from the date of their transfer to take advantage of this policy.
