Transfer Students

If you are a transfer student and require a Physics course to be reviewed for transfer credit, you must bring the following documents:
1) A copy of the unofficial transcript showing the grades.
2) An official course syllabus or outline for each Physics course you are requesting transfer credit. Only a grade of C and above will be considered for transfer.
Bring the required documentation or email it to Ms. Leslie Williams located at 463 Tiernan Hall, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, email:
Transfer credit will not be considered unless these documents are received.
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the official transcript gets sent to NJIT Registrar's Office, Attn: Patrick Fields.
If you need a permit for a Physics course, you must apply for online at:

Approval to take a Summer Course at Other Colleges

NJIT students who wish to take a Physics class at another college (including Rutgers-Newark & Essex County College) over the summer must obtain prior written approval from the Physics Department.​ Students will need to complete and submit an “Approval to take a Summer Course at Other Colleges” form which can be obtained at this link. It is the student's responsibility to find out if the other college is offering the Physics course. The Physics staff can help you determine the correct equivalent course. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure he/she is taking the correct Physics course according to their major. 

NOTE: Students are not permitted to take a Physics course at another college during the Fall and Spring semesters except under unusual circumstances which will be reviewed by the Chair of the Physics Department on a case by case basis.
Exception for taking courses at Rutgers-Newark, Essex CC and RBHS in Fall / Spring: Matriculated NJIT students may cross-register for courses at Rutgers-Newark College of Arts and Sciences, Essex County College and at the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS) during Fall and Spring semesters. Eligible students who wish to do so should follow current procedures as described on the Registrar's website.
