Awarding of Transfer Credit

Students attending Camden County College may earn college credit for a variety of learning experiences that were achieved outside of the traditional college setting. For example, students who can document knowledge acquired while in the military, workplace, advanced courses in high school, or non-traditional course work may submit official documentation for an evaluation or request a test that demonstrates college level knowledge in a particular area.

Note: Students who wish to achieve credit this way should look closely at the credits needed to finish their degree, and how their prior learning experiences may satisfy some of the courses they are required to take. Credits earned through these methods are not computed in the cumulative grade-point average.

Proficiency Exams and Credit by Assessment:

  • Advanced Placement
  • College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
  • Apprenticeship to College Credit (NJPlace) Apprenticeship to College Credit Handbook
  • Credit by Exam
  • Student Portfolio
  • Credit for Military Experience

Transfer of Credit

(From 2018 Camden County College Catalog)

Students who have attended or are attending a regionally accredited college or university must provide official transcripts of all previously attempted college credits if they are applying to a selective program OR want to have previous college credit evaluated for transfer OR need to document completion of a course prerequisite. The Records and Registration Office will evaluate and grant transfer of credit upon admission to the College.

Courses completed at regionally accredited colleges or universities (and from properly accredited programs) with a grade of C (or equivalent) or above will be evaluated for transfer provided that the course is compatible with the curriculum of Camden County College, as approved by the faculty, and the course is applicable to the requested program of study.

Transfer students must complete at least 30 credits in Camden County College courses to receive a degree. Grades received at other institutions will not be used in computing the cumulative grade point average at Camden County College.

International students who wish to transfer credits earned in their home countries have the responsibility of having their transcripts evaluated by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) International Education Services or an evaluator of foreign credentials that is a member of the National Association of Credentials Evaluation Services (NACES), such as World Education Services; and submitting the evaluation to the Office of Records and Registration.

Camden County College reserves the right to deny inappropriate credit requests.
