Course Substitution or Waiver

Guidelines for Montclair State University’s Acceptance of Transfer Courses for Substitution of College Writing I and College Writing II

If you have taken a course in New Jersey, check with NJTransfer. If appropriately listed, the course you have taken will be linked to any Montclair State University course for which you are eligible to receive credit.  If you did not receive credit for 105 or 106 at the time of transfer, and your course is approved by NJTransfer, visit Schmitt Hall 138.

However, if the course you have taken does not show up on the NJTransfer website and you believe it is eligible, please do the following:

First, review Montclair State University’s course descriptions so you can be clear as to whether or not the course you have taken is similar to one of our courses. If you think your course is eligible, complete the Transfer-Credits-Form and drop it off, with appropriate attachments, to Schmitt Hall 138.

Note: Waivers for courses that have not been officially accepted by Montclair State University cannot be processed.
