If you’re an incoming first-year student, you may have the opportunity to receive college credits toward your NJIT degree before you even start classes. To receive transfer credits, you can use your College Board Advanced Placement (AP) examination scores, International Baccalaureate exam scores (IB), or college-level courses you may have completed during your time in high school. 

For any student who has already taken AP/IB exams or has college credits from high school, read below for more information. All other transfer students should review the transfer student requirements and details section of our site. 

Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) program of the College Board allows students to earn college credit while in high school. NJIT is proud to participate in this AP program. To receive college credit, send your official AP Exam scores to NJIT through the College Board, using the school code 2513. Please contact the Office of University Admissions for more information or questions regarding your AP credit.

Credit for College-Level Courses

In order to receive credit for any college level courses taken during high school, students must submit their official transcripts to NJIT for review. If your courses meet the following criteria, the appropriate academic department will determine whether or not credit will be awarded.

  • Students must earn a grade of C or better to be considered for credit.  
  • Course content is also used to determine a course's equivalency to an NJIT course.
  • Students must submit an official transcript from each college where a course was completed.  Courses are evaluated upon submission and approved by the NJIT academic department.
