Transferring to Georgian Court University—Expand Possibility

“GCU has given so much to me, and I can only hope to give a portion of it back because I will never be able to repay the amount that it has given. The experiences I gained will only help me as I continue on in my life…I can truly say that choosing to transfer to GCU was the best decision I have made in my life.” —Peter Collins ’15

Transfer Process
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.
