Thank you for your interest in Rutgers at Mercer County Community College. If you wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree through Rutgers Statewide, you must meet all the admissions criteria of the university and transfer with an associate degree or junior status. Once you earn an associate degree, complete an admission application and are admitted to Rutgers, the vast majority of your credits (provided you’ve earned a grade of C or better) will transfer, making up half of your bachelor’s degree so that you enter Rutgers as a junior. If you are a transfer student from an N.J. community college, visit NJ Transfer for help with transfer equivalency and course equivalency. Review the instructions for your particular program before starting your application. You can preview the undergraduate application on the Undergraduate Admissions website and apply now for full- or part-time programs. Learn more. NOTE: Classes offered through the Rutgers-Mercer County partnership are available at Mercer County’s campus in West Windsor. You must select the Mercer County campus as your “School Choice” and then choose the major you wish to study as your “Academic Interest.”
