Proposed revision to policy on:
Concurrent Registration in Institutions outside of Rutgers (Transient Credit).

Matriculated students at Rutgers-Camden are expected to take all their courses at Rutgers-Camden, unless they receive permission in advance to take a course at another institution. Exceptions will not normally be given for courses needed to meet general curricular requirements. Exceptions may be granted if a student has only one term before graduation and needs a course that is not being offered during that term, or when a student’s major department authorizes taking an advanced or specialized course not available at Rutgers-Camden. Lower tuition, scheduling convenience, or traveling distance are not sufficient cause for taking courses elsewhere.

Prior to enrollment, students who wish to enroll at another college for credit must submit a transient application form, available from the office of the associate dean of the college or the Office of Student Affairs, for approval by the chairperson of their major department, the chairperson of the department in which the equivalent course is offered, and the associate dean of the college. Transient credit approval will not be granted retroactively.

Students must have the registrar of the transient school send an official transcript directly to the Rutgers-Camden registrar upon completion of the work. Acceptance of transient credit is based on a grade of C or better.

Meeting adjourned at 1:20 P.M.

Laurie Bernstein, Secretary
Faculty Senate (AY 2001-2002)
