Converting Non-Credit Courses to Graduate Credit

Courses that are completed as non-credit can be converted to graduate credit by paying the difference between the non-credit cost you paid and the current cost of graduate tuition. The current graduation tuition can be found here. The credit conversion is available any time within five years of completing the course.

You may convert any number or all of your NPTNJ courses.

Click on this Credit Conversion Request to begin the credit conversion process. Once this form is received and processed, the bursar's office will create an invoice. That invoice must be paid in full. There is no payment plan for credit conversions. You may, however, convert only one or two courses at a time to spread out the payments.
