Virtual Admissions Office Update (COVID-19)

With the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Office of Admissions is modifying its delivery of services at this time. Please note that the College is operating remotely on a summer schedule and are open Monday- Thursdays, 8:00am- 5:15pm. 

All Admissions appointments will be converted to virtual appointments. If you have an existing appointment or would like to make an appointment via phone or Skype, email your Admissions Counselor ( In addition, you can also reach out to the Admissions Team by the following ways:

  • Text Us:
    If you are a Transfer Student (under the age of 25): (201) 989-1615
    If you are an Adult Student (over the age of 25) or a Readmit Student: (201) 800-6057
  • Live Chat (Click on the live chat button on the lower right corner to connect with an Admissions Counselor, Monday- Thursday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:15 p.m.)
  • Follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter

Transfer Days: We are now hosting Transfer Days virtually by phone or Webex.  You can register for an appointment here. Transfer Day appointments allow Fall 2020 prospective, applicant, and admitted students learn more about Ramapo and the transfer application process.

Many institutions are offering P/F (pass/fail) grades for the Spring 2020 semester as a result of the concerns and ramifications surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.  While we will accept a “pass” grade, we are advising students at this time, that if a specific letter grade is required for a prerequisite or for admission to an academic program, you may have to take the course again.  If the Registrar from your current institution can send an official letter that indicates the letter grade you would have earned, this may meet the prerequisite grade requirement. This is advisable for Ramapo, as well as future graduate, medical or post-baccalaureate plans you may have. 

Each year more than 700 transfer students enroll at Ramapo College of New Jersey. These students enter from more than 135 colleges nationwide including 35 New Jersey colleges. Approximately 70 percent of these students enroll from two-year colleges. Ramapo also enrolls transfer students from colleges outside the United States, from countries all over the world.
