Frequently Asked Questions

Who is my faculty advisor?

Each student who has declared a major is assigned a faculty advisor who specializes in your major area of study. You can determine who your advisor is by logging onto your Self Service portal and clicking on your profile.
How many credits can I take?

A full time course load is 12 credits per semester. During the fall and spring semesters students with a minimum GPA of 2.0 and in good academic standing (GPA of at least 2.0) will be allowed to take a maximum of 20 credits. Students who are on probation will not be permitted to take more than 18 credits per semester. During the summer, the maximum number of credits for all students is 16. For more detailed information please refer to the Bloomfield College Catalog.

What are the policies for Academic Probation and Dismissal?

Probation and Dismissal are based upon the student’s cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA). For more detailed information please refer to the Bloomfield College Catalog.
What is the Grade Appeal Policy?

If you think you have received a final grade you did not deserve than you may appeal that grade within the first two weeks of the next semester. For more detailed information on the steps of the appeal process please see the Bloomfield College Catalog.
How do I submit a petition?

A student may petition the Faculty Committee on Academic Standards for the following reasons: grade appeal (only after previous steps of the appeal process have been exhausted), permission to repeat a course for a third time, permission to exceed 18 credits in one semester, and to take courses at another college (when it would otherwise not be permitted). Please email from your BC email account to receive a link to the petition form along with instructions for completing the submission.
Does Bloomfield participate in 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.

Please contact the Office of the Registrar if you wish to appeal a decision that you believe is not consistent with the New Jersey Transfer initiative. The Office of the Registrar is located at 467 Franklin, Knox Hall, First Floor and can be reached by email or phone 973-748-9000 Option 4. For more information about New Jersey Transfer visit

What if I have not declared a major?

Each student must declare a major or area of concentration formally prior to registering for the 17th course. The Career Services office is available for assistance selecting a major.
Will my transfer credits be accepted?

The courses you are transferring will be evaluated by an advisor once you have been accepted to the College. If there are courses that need further evaluation you must take a description of those courses to the department chairperson for possible use in your major.
