Ramapo College sets admission criteria for different groups of applicants in keeping with its vision and mission:

Undergraduate Admissions (first year)

Applications for first-year admission are reviewed by the staff in the Office of Admissions. All applications that are received with an application fee or approved waiver will be reviewed and action will be taken.  Applications that are received by the established deadline and complete (application with fee or waiver, official transcript, standardized test score, letter of recommendation) will be issued a decision (acceptance, denial, wait list). Any application received by the deadline that is not complete by office-established deadlines will receive a denial letter and will be coded as IW (institutional withdrawal).

All applications will be reviewed completely and holistically by the Office of Admissions. Evaluative criteria may vary from year to year and program to program based on the number of applicants and the established Strategic Plan and Enrollment Management goals for that period. 

Undergraduate Admissions (Transfer)

Applications for transfer admission are reviewed by the staff in the Office of Admissions. All applications that are received with an application fee or approved waiver will be reviewed and action will be taken.  Applications that are received by the deadline and complete (application with fee or waiver, official college transcript(s), letter of recommendation, Transfer Candidates Form) will be issued a decision (acceptance, denial, wait list).  Any application received by the deadline that is not complete by office-established deadlines will receive a denial letter and will be coded as IW (institutional withdrawal).

All applications will be reviewed completely and holistically by the Office of Admissions. Evaluative criteria may vary from year to year and program to program based on the number of applicants and the established Strategic Plan and Enrollment Management goals for that period.

Undergraduate Admissions (Non-Degree)

Applications for non-degree admission are processed by the staff in the Office of Admissions. All applications that are received for non-degree status are considered actionable.  Students will self-disclose that they are in good standing academically and socially at any prior institutions they have attended and will agree to all stipulations outlined on the non-degree application.  A decision letter (acceptance, denial) will be sent.
