​​​Exemption Criteria

  • ​A transfer student who has successfully completed both college-level English and college-level mathematics with a grade of “C” or better.
  • ​A student who provided the Test Center the placement test scores administered at another institution to comply with the College’s admission and placement requirements. If the student completed any developmental courses as a result of the test, he/she must submit a copy of the transcript showing a grade of “C” or better from the other institution to the Office of Admissions. The student who requires remediation, but did not complete the remediation, will be placed according to the results of the placement test or the student may choose to retest at RCSJ.
  • ​A student with an Associate Degree or higher from an accredited institution who submitted an official transcript to the Office of Admissions. If college-level writing and mathematics are omitted from the transcript, the exemption will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The student must meet all required course prerequisites for course enrollment. Please note: this exemption is not applicable to Selective Admissions applicants.

  • A visiting student (non-matriculated, attending a two- or four-year institution on a full-time basis) who completed the required course prerequisites.
  • ​A student who exceeded a predetermined score on acceptable standardized tests (i.e. ACT, PARCC/NJSLA, PSAT, SAT). The student must provide official proof of the test scores to the appropriate department (the Testing Center in Cumberland or the Office of Admissions in Gloucester). Test scores may be provided on the official high school transcript, official test scores report, received electronically directly from the high school guidance office, or directly from the standardized test publisher(s).
