Read Before You Apply
If you would like to take graduate courses at Rutgers, and you are not pursuing a Rutgers degree, nondegree study is available in most programs.
Courses taken as a nondegree student may transfer toward a degree at the program's discretion. However, we cannot guarantee that you will be admitted to the degree program once you have completed your nondegree courses.
Many Rutgers graduate and professional programs offer the opportunity for nondegree study.
Find and Contact Your Program of Interest
You can have your transcripts sent to the Rutgers Graduate and Professional Admissions office free of charge. During the application process, select Rutgers as the institution, hit save on the "Institution Rutgers Indicator" pop-up, and then "Yes" to have official Rutgers transcripts sent automatically. If you do not select this option prior to submitting your online application, you will have to contact the Rutgers Registrar's Office to request transcripts and will incur a fee of $7 per transcript.
You must first complete the online application process and be admitted to your program before any consideration of transfer credits will be made.
After you have been accepted to your program, the program will review your credits and consider them for transfer. This process is completely at the discretion of the program. The program will want assurance that the course or courses in question are equal in quality to those that you would have taken at Rutgers.
You can reapply or reactivate an application submitted within the previous year:
While one new letter, a revised personal statement, and the application fee are minimally necessary, your goal is to improve your application to get the most positive review possible.
If your original application was not submitted with the past year, you will need to start a new online application.
