New Jersey Transfer
Bloomfield College is a participating institution in New Jersey Transfer, an online program that provides detailed information on articulation agreements and course equivalencies for New Jersey's two-year and four-year colleges. Students enrolled at, or planning to attend, a New Jersey community college can plan a seamless transfer into Bloomfield College by choosing a program of study and selecting courses that have been pre-approved for transfer. New Jersey Transfer is an initiative of the State of New Jersey Commission on Higher Education and evolved from the Rutgers University transfer pilot program, ARTSYS.
