Transfer Services ~ A Smart Path to a Bachelor's Degree

RVCC enables you to start your journey to a bachelor’s degree. You will be able to transfer to the very best college for your needs to fulfill your educational and career goals. Students transfer successfully to schools in NJ and all over the country. RVCC has articulation/transfer agreements  with many four-year institutions, many of which guarantee junior standing for RVCC graduates who have met or exceeded the specified grade point average.   In addition, some agreements provide special incentives such as waivers of application fees, guaranteed housing, transfer scholarships and priority admission consideration. 

Transfer Advisors/Counselors offer comprehensive information about the entire transfer process as well as resources and recommendations to assist students in transferring to the best bachelor-degree institution for their needs.
