Scholarships for Transfer Students

Merit Based Scholarships for New Jersey Transfer Students

Ramapo College offers merit-based scholarships to incoming students transferring from NJ community colleges, provided they meet the eligibility requirements, which includes a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 and the attainment of an A.A. or A.S. degree. The College also offers housing grants and other funding options based on each individual student’s circumstances.

Ramapo College offers scholarship opportunities to current students. Check out some of the opportunities available after you enroll.

Traditional Transfer

Choosing where to go to college is a big decision. Some students come to realize the choice they made is not the right fit for them once they are enrolled. Perhaps you thought you wanted to go far away from home, or to a big university, or to a city campus, but now are changing your mind, and missing family and friends and all that the Northern N.J./Metro N.Y. area has to offer. You may be looking for a better value or different major. If you are currently attending another four-year college and are considering transferring, Ramapo College will work with you to find a program that meets your specific needs and previously earned credits.

Community College to Four-Year

Approximately 70 percent of our transfer students enroll from two-year colleges. Ramapo College follows state-wide articulation agreements with all N.J. community colleges and develops many program agreements to make it easy to transfer courses into your major at Ramapo; this means if you hold an Associate in Arts (AA) or Associate in Science (AS) from a N.J. community college, we will accept your full degree up to the maximum 65 transfer credits allowed from a two-year-school. Ramapo also holds agreements with several N.Y. community colleges, including Rockland, Orange, Westchester and Duchess; these agreements offer reduced tuition for N.Y. community college graduates and streamlined program pathways.

Returning Adults

Do you have credits from other colleges earned over time and want to finish your degree? Maybe you had to take some time off from your education. Ramapo College will work with you to find a program that meets your specific needs, lifestyle and prior education or earned credits. Ramapo offers a variety of ways for students to finish their undergraduate degree, whether through part-time studies, online courses, or our accelerated evening program.


Ramapo College is ranked as a Top College for serving veterans. We have dedicated services and opportunities including financial aid counselors who understand the various veterans educational benefits and funding options from the government, housing options that fall within the allotted stipend, a Veterans Student Organization and more.
