    CLEPS and Transfer Agreements

    Hey everyone,

    I'm working on completing a degree from a local county college and I've planned out how many CLEPS and AP scores and classes I need to take in order to graduate next semester with an AA in Business.

    I live in NJ and the transfer agreements here state that if you transfer from a 2 year college to a 4 year college, you'll start off as a junior at that 4 year institution. I am worried the CLEPS I'm providing during my transfer will be rejected at the college I'm interested in attending and they'll force me to retake a large sum of classes. Is this likely? Would I possibly start off with 40 credits instead of 60?

    Would I be better off just finishing a bachelors at TESC?

    I'm potentially interested in going to either Rutgers or NJIT .

    Here are two links that are relevant:

    Thanks!

    I just gave a presentation at a homeschooling conference last week and this question came up. The answer is always the same - examine the catalog of the receiving institution and contact them if there are questions. You should also examine the portfolio option for credit as well.

    They may recognize you as a junior but needing more than 60 credit hours to meet their specific BS/BA requirements. Happened to me in transferring from Tidewater Community College to Old Dominion University, which have a transfer agreement.
