A Pathway from Rutgers­–Camden Arts and Sciences to Rutgers School of Health Professionals

Rutgers University–Camden and the Rutgers University School of Health Professions has entered into an agreement that creates pathways to master’s degree programs in the Rutgers School of Health Professions. Camden College of Arts and Sciences (CCAS) undergraduate students can now earn credits toward a master’s degree in the Rutgers School of Health Professions (SHP) and apply for early acceptance into SHP master’s programs. 

The program will begin in the fall term of 2022.

Key elements and benefits of the agreement include:  

  • Beginning their junior year through the Credit Articulation Option, qualified Camden College of Arts & Sciences (CCAS) students may enroll in up to 6 SHP graduate credits.  
  • These courses will be cross-listed by CCAS and SHP, so participating students will earn credit toward both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. 
  • As undergraduates, CCAS students will pay CCAS tuition and fees for the cross-listed course.  
  • These six credits may be accepted as partial fulfillment towards the master’s degree if a grade of “B” or better is earned.   
  • To be eligible, undergraduate students in CCAS must have completed 60 undergraduate credits with a cumulative GPA of 3. 
  • Through the Early Acceptance Option, CCAS students may also be considered for application and acceptance into an SHP master’s program  
  • For these students, the GRE requirement is waived. 
  • To be accepted into the Early Acceptance Option, BA or BS students must have: 
    • 75 earned undergraduate credits;
    • An overall GPA of at least 3.0 for early admissions to SHP at the time of application with an earned grade of “B” or better in the SHP courses;  
    • One or two letters of recommendation (depends on the Program) with at least one from the Undergraduate Program Director;  
    • Official transcripts indicating all prior undergraduate coursework.   
  •
