Steps to Apply

You are considered an international applicant if you are currently studying or plan to study in the United States on an F-1 or J-1 visa.

Below are the basic application requirements for international students applying to graduate school at Rutgers. Individual graduate programs may require additional materials

  1. Complete the Graduate Admissions Application
  2. Pay the $70 application fee online or by mail.
  3. Submit one official transcript from each post-secondary school attended. Transcripts must be the official, original document or a certified true copy. Transcripts not in English must be accompanied by a translation verified by a professional translator and must arrive on the professional letterhead of the translator.
  4. Submit supporting materials:
    • Three letters of recommendation. Letters of recommendation must be submitted in English or come with an official translation in English.
    • A personal statement.
    • Your CV or résumé.
  5. Submit proof of English proficiency. Test scores, such as TOEFL or IELTS, are required if your undergraduate education was completed in a non-English speaking country. If you are missing required test scores, your application will not be reviewed by the graduate admissions committee. Rutgers’ TOEFL code is 2765.
  6. Submit official test scores required by your program of study. Check with your program of study to find the required test scores for your program, such as the GRE, GMAT or LSAT. Use institution code 2790 to send official test scores to Rutgers.
