GCU is known as one of the most “transfer-friendly” universities in New Jersey, one reason why we’ve been named to Phi Theta Kappa’s Transfer Honor Roll many times. No matter where your college journey started, we’ll work with you to determine how many credits will transfer and develop an academic path forward with the goal of completing your degree as soon as possible.
