*Required credentials for first-year applicants and transfer applicants are due two weeks later than the application due date. Your Rutgers Status screen displays updates after required credentials are received.

+You may apply after due dates have passed. However, if you apply after the due dates or if your file remains incomplete after due dates for credentials submission have passed, you will be withdrawn from admissions consideration if your school(s) of application meet enrollment goals before the Admissions Office reviews your application.

**Admissions decisions will be posted online via your Rutgers Status no later than this date.

^Applying by our fall early action date does not restrict students from applying to other colleges or universities, and Rutgers early action decisions are not binding.
