The transfer process for all colleges and universities includes completion of a transfer application and submission of official transcripts from all higher education institutions that you've attended. However, each college and university might have additional requirements, including such things as a transfer application fee, letters of recommendation, personal statements, high school transcripts, etc. Please be sure to check with the university you're interested in to find out what their requirements are.
Generally, plan to apply for transfer at the beginning of the semester prior to the one in which you want to start at your new school. So, for example, if you want to start at your new school in August of 2022, you should plan to apply in January of 2022. If you want to start in January of 2023, plan to apply in September 2022.
The New Jersey state legislature passed the Statewide Transfer Agreement to ensure the transfer of academic credits between two-year community colleges and four-year senior public institutions.
