Appeals Process for Transfer Students

Transfer students at Rutgers–Camden may appeal a decision if they are in disagreement with an assigned equivalency.  ONSP performs the initial transfer evaluation. The student should review the evaluation for accuracy, and should the student feel there are any discrepancies, listed below is the appeal process.

There are three levels of appeal. The Level 1 appeal must be made within 30 days of receiving the evaluation. The Level 2 appeal must be made two weeks after the Level 1 decision. The Level 3 appeal must be made within two weeks of the Level 2 decision.
