Those who have a grant or fellowship from an outside source are welcome to apply it toward the tuition cost of the program. United States citizens or permanent residents may be eligible to apply for student loans by contacting the Financial Aid Office. In general, our program does not offer Teaching or Research Assistantships.

Non-Degree Graduate Students
Students who wish to take graduate courses in our program (part-time or full-time) should apply to Rutgers as a non-degree ("non-matriculated") student in the Business and Science curriculum (New Brunswick: 16137 or Camden: 56137, or Newark: 26137) of the Graduate School-New Brunswick or Graduate School - Camden, or Graduate School- Newark. Please contact our office for assistance with special permission numbers and registration.

Balancing Study with Part or Full-Time Employment
For working students, part or full time employment is an important method of financing educational expenses. However, to ensure satisfactory academic progress, please understand the need to maintain a realistic balance between the number of work and study hours per week.

Many employers allow a flexible schedule and time off for office hours or exam preparation, in addition to tuition benefits. However, if you experience difficulty finding time to complete homework assignments or prepare for exams or find that your homework or exam grades are falling below average (B), you should either reduce the number of employment hours per week or reduce the number of courses per semester. It is the responsibility of the student to be informed of the Registrar's calendar of drop or withdrawal dates.


Rutgers has both on campus and off campus housing for Graduate Students. Please visit the Rutgers Graduate Affairs page for more information.
