3+1 Frequently Asked Questions

Can I transfer in credits from another school towards the 3+1 program?
Yes. Please send all official college transcripts to RCBC to see what transfers into the freshman-junior year. Once admitted into the 3+1 program, please provide a second official college transcript to the Rowan Relations Office, which will be provided to Rowan University.

Can I do the 3+1 if I have an associate from another school?
Yes. Make sure you apply to RCBC and select non-degree seeking as your major. Send all official college transcripts to RCBC and provide a second official copy to the Rowan Relations Office for Rowan University. RCBC will determine how many credits transfer in towards the 3+1 program. Students need to complete 88-91 credits before moving onto senior year courses with Rowan University.  Declare 3+1 and follow steps 3-7.

I already graduated from RCBC (or BCC); can I come back for the 3+1 program?
Yes. If it has been more than three years since you graduated from RCBC (or BCC), please fill out the RCBC application again and select non-degree seeking as your major. If you graduated from RCBC less than three years ago, see registration to activate your account as a non-degree seeking student. Declare 3+1 and follow steps 3-7.

I previously attended RCBC (formerly BCC) and never graduated, can I come back for the 3+1 program?
Yes. If it has been more than three years since you took a course with RCBC (or BCC), please fill out the RCBC application again and select a major to complete an associate degree. If you took courses less than three years ago with RCBC, you can see academic advising to see how close you are to completing an associate degree. If you have 30 college credits completed, declare 3+1 and follow steps 3-7.

What is the cost of the junior year courses?
The junior year courses are charged at RCBC’s cost. Please visit rcbc.edu/businessoffice/tuition-fees for more information.

How do I register for junior year courses?
Registration is through RCBC and done the same way you registered for your freshman and sophomore year. You can register through WebAdvisor or in person with RCBC registration.

How much does the senior year cost?
You will pay Rowan University’s tuition and fees for the senior year. Students will have between 30-32 credits left to complete the senior year. If classes are taken in Mount Laurel or online, students will pay the per-credit tuition rate listed at rowan.edu/home/admissions-aid/cost-value  and receive a 15 percent discount.

How do I register for senior year courses?
Senior year courses are with Rowan University and the registration process is through Rowan University’s Office of Registrar. Rowan University will have an advisor on the Mount Laurel Campus to assist 3+1 students when they transition to the senior year.

Who do I talk to about financial aid, RCBC or Rowan University?
Freshman and sophomore year financial aid is processed through RCBC: rcbc.edu/financialaid. Junior and senior year aid is processed through Rowan University: rowan.edu/financial-aid. Make sure RCBC’s code is on your FAFSA for freshman, sophomore and junior year, and make sure Rowan University’s code is on your FAFSA for junior and senior year.

What will my diploma say?

What classes do I need to take?
