There is an expectation that once you begin your matriculation at Rutgers- School of Arts and Sciences, you will complete the bulk of your work within academic departments on the New Brunswick Campus. There are, however, several other ways to earn credit toward the degree requirements. You may be awarded credits through Transfer courses, Advanced Placement examinations, International Baccalaureate, and Rutgers proficiency examinations.  Credits earned through these methods are not computed in the cumulative grade-point average. Academic departments determine if such courses and/or credits are applicable to the major, minor, or the SAS Core Curriculum.
