Student Types

Returning Rutgers Student

Returning Matriculated (Degree Seeking) Student

Students who were previously matriculated in an undergraduate degree program at any campus of Rutgers University and wish to return during a fall or spring semester must re-enroll. Students may choose to re-enroll at any school or campus in which they meet the school’s requirements for admission and graduation.

 

 

 

 

Returning Non-Matriculated (Non-Degree) Student

Students who were previously enrolled in only Summer or Winter sessions as a non-matriculating student can return once a visiting student registration form is completed to reactivate your access.  Students will be able to use their assigned Rutgers University Identification number (RUID) and Personal Access Code (PAC).

 

 

Prospective Student

Matriculating

Matriculating students are seeking a degree.  Adult/nontraditional students who are thinking about attending Rutgers should carefully review the UC endorsed majors that are offered at times more flexible for adults. Some majors offered at Rutgers-New Brunswick are not fully accessible for working adults and might require change in work and personal schedules.

Students should first review all the programs offered at Rutgers-New Brunswick.  Prospective students with prior international credits and/or degrees applying to Rutgers must have their educational credentials evaluated for both equivalency to a U.S. Bachelor degree or credits and individual course evaluations and GPA, using a NACES accredited credentialing agency.  For a list of NACES agencies, please visit http://www.naces.org/members.htm.

We invite you to complete the Self-Assessments for Prospective Adults and Nontraditional Students prior to applying.

 

 

Non-Matriculating (Non-Degree)

Adult/nontraditional students who are thinking about taking courses at Rutgers for non-degree study may apply in various ways depending on the term of enrollment and on a space-available basis.  There may be restrictions on the number of credits permitted to complete as a non-degree student. Please be aware that not all schools enroll non-matriculating students.

 

 
 
 

Students applying for the Spring or Fall terms to non-degree programs offered by a school may apply using the undergraduate admissions application, which requires an application fee and then an enrollment fee upon acceptance. 

 

 

 

 

 

Transfer Students

Transfer students are high school graduates who will have completed 12 college credits or more before attending Rutgers as a matriculated student (this excludes current high school students who are also taking college courses).  Transfer students with prior international credits and/or degrees applying to Rutgers must have their educational credentials evaluated for both equivalency to a U.S. Bachelor degree or credits and individual course evaluations and GPA, using a NACES accredited credentialing agency.  For a list of NACES agencies, please visit http://www.naces.org/members.htm

 

 

 

 

School-to-School Transfers

Currently enrolled Rutgers undergraduate students working toward a degree who wish to apply for admission to another school within the university must submit the online school-to-school transfer application. Students can transfer between Camden, Newark, or New Brunswick as long as they meet the Requirements for Admission and Graduation.
