Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success

Rutgers University–New Brunswick is an inaugural member of the new Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success. Free college planning tools are now available for your students.

Applicants to Rutgers University–New Brunswick for fall 2017 may use either the new Coalition application or Rutgers' own university-wide application. Students who wish to apply to more than one university of Rutgers should use our university-wide application. Any of your students interested in our universities in Camden and Newark or any of our off-campus locations, or interested in spring entry to any school or location, must use the Rutgers university-wide application.
More information on the Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success can be found at


Counselors' Information Center

The Counselors' Information Center allows you to access information about your students' applications to Rutgers (each year by the second week in October); sign up for our counselors' newsletters; and update the contact information for your school. To sign in, use your school's CEEB and Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you don't know your school's PIN, please email us and we will send it to you.

About Applying to Rutgers

How and When We Report Decisions

Rutgers' official admissions decisions are displayed online on each applicant's Your Rutgers Status page. For "How We Make Decisions," please see the descriptions for first-year and transfer applicants. We notify students of our admissions decisions when they are final and within the time frames described here.

Our Application

Rutgers has its own online application available for preview here. Please direct your students to our checklist of the required credentials for first-year and transfer applicants.

Our application includes an essay:
  • Required for first-year applicants and recommended for transfer applicants.
  • Limited in length to 3800 characters, including spaces.
  • An important factor in admission decisions.

The Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR) for First-year Applicants

  • First-year applicants only self report their courses, grades and grade-point averages from grades 9 through 11 as well as courses in progress in grade 12; they do so with the free-standing online form called the Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR). When students submit a SRAR, they do not submit a paper transcript prior to graduation. Please preview the SRAR here.
  • All enrolling students will be required to request that their schools provide a final official transcript with all courses and final grades by January 8, 2017 for spring admission and as follows for fall admission: June 15 for transfer students and July 1, 2017 for first-year students.
  • High school students can create a SRAR account at any time during their high school careers. We do not accept transcripts submitted in lieu of the SRAR or documents submitted through third-party software programs such as Naviance.
