Bump. Does anyone in the NJ or NYC area know where I can take some of the prerequisite classes? Can I apply to Rutgers-Newark directly and sign up for some of their classes?

I am currently enrolled in the RU Accel program. It is considerably cheaper to take pre-reqs at community colleges, rather than at Rutgers. As long as the credits transfer (check on njtranfer.com for equivalencies before you register), it shouldn't matter where you earned it. I also took a CLEP exam for the Sociology requirement ($77 exam fee, plus book).

Also, I HIGHLY recommend that you plan to complete pre-reqs before starting the program. There is a tentative, very likely, plan to eliminate the challenge tests, with the exception of Cultural. So be prepared. The program only starts in May. The summer semester was tough, but I survived =>

Hi does anyone have a syllabus or isbn number for the book used for HIP at rutgers? I couldn't find the transfer equivalent for this class and would most likely have to test out.

The class equivalent for HIP is Interpersonal Communications class which can be taken in any community college. I do not recommend taking the challenge exam. I would email any of the admins for the challenge exam info, including the syllabus and textbook. Good luck.

So I am an LPN and I just finished all my Pre reqs for the RN program. I can now take my HESI and try to clep in to the program. I will be transferring to Rutgers eventually, while I wait to get into the nursing program at brookdale I am taking classed toward my BSN that will transfer to Rutgers. Unfortunately the colleges don't always make it a smooth transition and I effectively have no clue what I'm doing. I picked up a Spanish 1 class and stats this fall, I don't know what any of the electives are that I need to take it what computer class?? Help :-/
