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 Program 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 one’s content area, meeting the needs of 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 Secondary Special Education major accepted as transfer credit from another college:

  • An introductory course in special education (For SPE 103)
  • A course in adolescent learning and development (FOR SED 224)

Courses in the content major (English, Mathematics, History and Biology) will be determined by the relevant program coordinators in the School of Science or School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
