Transfer into Five-Year Program: Other Colleges

Transfer students are only admitted once per year, for the Fall semester; we do not accept transfer students for a January start date.  The Undergraduate Coordinator, together with the Admissions Office evaluates applications for students transferring from another college. Student’s applications are evaluated based on:

* prior undergraduate record(s)
* essay
* letters of recommendation
* available SAT scores
* high school rank

Evaluation of the essay is based on the applicant’s ability to convey a passion for teaching students with disabilities and a desire to attend The College of New Jersey. The number of students admitted is based on available openings in the cohort. The Admissions Office notifies applicants of their status.

The following are the only courses in the Special Education major accepted as transfer credit from another college:

• An introductory course in special education (For SPE 103)
• A course in speech and language development (for SLP 102)
• A course in children’s literature (for RAL 225)
• A course in educational psychology, which also includes a component focusing on individuals with disabilities (for SPE 203)
