Using TrAC

The Transfer Academic Credit System (TrAC) will help you enter, track, and follow courses and credits from past colleges/universities and learn how they may transfer to Rutgers University–Newark. To help you use and understand TrAC, we have created a TrAC tutorial video and TrAC tutorial pdf.

After you enter your information into Transfer Academic Credit System (TrAC) and an academic advisor reviews your information, you can review your transfer credit evaluation to see how your courses and credits from your past college/university have transferred to Rutgers University–Newark. To help you understand the details of the transfer evaluation report, we have created a transfer evaluation guide sheet

Sending Final Transcripts

Final transcripts from past colleges/universities must be submitted for a detailed evaluation.

All final transcripts must be sent to:
