Application Process

We're here to help.


The Office of University Undergraduate Admissions performs a comprehensive review of each application, giving preference to students who submit their application and required credentials by the application due dates. Please see "How We make Decisions" for first-year and transfer applicants.


Please review all of the menu items under Specific Information For International Applicants. See the  steps below for guidance through the application process.

  1. Review the minimum academic entrance requirements for each Rutgers college or school.
  2. Review the required academic documentation to complete the application for admission.
  3. Preview the application and, if you are still in high school, preview the Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR), so that you are prepared for what you will need to submit.
