In the beginning it was really, really difficult, but as I came out of my shell, I found support in reaching out to people on campus and building relationships. I joined in group texts, chats about homework and labs, and carpooled to clinicals at the local hospital. Although all of us in the nursing program had different struggles, we learned to support each other. That’s what carried me through: I met people who made me believe in myself.

As a transfer student, you can be accepted into the first-year, sophomore, or junior classes.
- You must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale from your former college.
- If you have fewer than 24 credits, you must fulfill all requirements for admission to the freshman class.
- Candidates for admission from regionally accredited two-year colleges are judged by the same criteria as applicants from four-year institutions.
- Generally, you may transfer up to 90 credits from regionally accredited institutions with no more than 75 credits from two-year institutions. Georgian Court also has dual-degree agreements with many New Jersey community colleges that are designed to make the transfer process easier and help you transfer the maximum number of credits.
