Admissions for Transfer Students

Students who have completed courses at another accredited post-secondary institution and want to transfer credits to ECC must submit official transcripts from other institution(s), a completed application, and pay a non-refundable fee. Please note that these documents become the property of ECC and will not be released to a third party or to the student. Any transfer student who has not taken the required placement examination in the last 3 years and does not transfer credits for college level mathematics and English composition, must take the placement examination. Credit may be granted provided the course(s) is/are comparable to course required in an applicant’s chosen major. As transcripts are received, credits are evaluated on a course by course basis. Credit may be granted provided the course work is comparable to or exceeds course work at ECC. A minimum grade of “C” is required for most courses to be transferable; however, courses transferred from NJ colleges and universities may include a “D” grade in non-major courses. Students will be notified via email and/or in writing as to the specific courses and credits that were accepted. To graduate, transfer students must complete at least half the credits toward their degree or certificate requirements and at least half of their major course requirements at ECC.
