Transfer Academic Credit (TrAC) System

The Rutgers TrAC System allows newly admitted students to enter, track, and submit their academic record electronically to Rutgers University to obtain a preliminary transfer credit evaluation.

For your convenience, here is a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the TrAC System.

Transfer Credit

Click here to view your transfer evaluation. Your transfer credits are from the initial final transcript you submitted for admission. Updated transcripts must be submitted to ensure transfer credit accuracy. All final transcripts must be sent to:

Rutgers University
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
65 Davidson Road, Room 202
Piscataway, NJ  08854-8097

Please note that additional transfer credits will be updated during the academic semester. You can check Enrollment Pathways to see what we have received thus far. A sample transfer evaluation can be viewed here which will explain the evaluation and course equivalencies.  

Credit is given for courses taken at accredited colleges and universities, as long as you’ve earned a C or better. New Jersey Community College students may consult NJ Transfer and view the NJ State-wide Articulation Agreement for more information about transfer credit.

If you are transferring from a foreign university, please have your credits evaluated by the World Education Services or one of the NACES members before prior to submitting your transcript(s) to us.

Students transferring from 2 year institutions may receive a maximum of 65 credits. Students transferring from 4 year institutions may receive a maximum of 90 credits.

Students who wish to appeal their transfer evaluation must do so within 30 days of receiving their Official Transfer Summary Report. Appeals can be filed by submitting the Transfer Evaluation Appeal Form by the following deadline:

Semester Accepted Deadline to Appeal
Fall Semester November 30
Spring Semester March 31

New Student Registration

All newly enrolling students must sign up for a Placement Test and Registration date. You must sign up through this database even if you think you will be exempt from the placement exam. During Rutgers Business School registration, you will get an overview of the academic policies, our career services, and will register your first semester courses. We expect you to arrive promptly and be present for the whole event.  If you cannot attend due to extenuating circumstances, you are responsible to notify us at least two weeks prior to your assigned date.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Lucille Foster at or 973 353 1661.
