New Jersey Statewide Transfer & Articulation Agreement Appeals Process
Thomas Edison State University has implemented the New Jersey Statewide Transfer and Articulation Agreement policies as a transfer resource to support course transfer decisions made by the University. The University provides an appeal process for students who believe a transfer decision is not consistent with this policy. This appeal process is featured on the University’s website and in the University Catalog. Questions regarding the appeal process can be forwarded to the Office of the Registrar by phone at (609) 984-1180 or by firstname.lastname@example.org.
Procedures and Appeal Guidelines
Undergraduate students who disagree with any portion of their transfer credit evaluation should submit a written request for review by U.S. mail to:
Office of the Registrar
Thomas Edison State University
111 W. State Street
Trenton, NJ 08608
Requests may also be made via email@example.com.
The request for review should include the following information:
- Your full name
- Thomas Edison State University student ID number
- Mailing address and phone number
- Email address
- Detailed narrative to include supporting rationale and reason for appeal
- Documentation which supports the request. This could include course descriptions, course syllabus, course objectives, learning outcomes, transcripts or other relevant information
Students have 30 calendar days from receipt of the academic evaluation to file an appeal. Thomas Edison State University’s Registrar will conduct a review of the credit evaluation and respond to the student in writing with a decision.
Undergraduate students not satisfied with the Registrar’s determination or who believe that the decision is not consistent with the Statewide Transfer and Articulation Agreement may appeal in writing to the Vice Provost within 30 calendar days of receipt of the decision of the Registrar. The appeal should contain the same information required for the Registrar’s Review (see above) along with any additional explanations or arguments the student wishes to have considered.
The Vice Provost will refer the matter to either the Student Appeals or appropriate Academic Appeals Committee. The Committee will meet to consider the appeal within 30 calendar days of receipt. The Committee may affirm, reject, modify, or adjust the transfer credit evaluation as they deem appropriate. The Committee will inform the student, in writing, of its decision. The Chairperson of the Committee shall also inform the Provost of their decision. The decision of the Committee is final and may not be appealed within the institution.
