Tuition & Scholarships

A superior education. An excellent return on your investment.

Rutgers is ranked among the best colleges and universities in the world. International students (on F-1 or J-1 visas) pay the same tuition rate as all other students who are legal residents of places other than New Jersey.  For a complete list of costs (including tuition, room and board, daily living expenses, travel expenses, etc., please see Tuition and Fees.


All admitted international students must complete the International Student Financial Statement (ISFS) and submit bank statements (or other acceptable documentation) showing the required amount of funds to receive their I-20 from Rutgers. The ISFS serves to estimate the total possible cost of your first academic year at Rutgers, and your completed ISFS and bank statement demonstrate your ability to support these expenses. You may submit faxed or scanned copies of these documents to Rutgers for the purpose of issuing your I-20. However, you must retain the original bank letter/statement for your visa interview. For more information, please see Financial Documentation.


International Student Scholarships

All admitted students are automatically considered for scholarship awards. No separate application is required. International students who wish to be considered for scholarships are encouraged to apply by either the Early Action or Regular Action application due dates. Given the limited availability, early applicants are more likely to be awarded scholarships.


The majority of international students support their undergraduate education through family, private, government or other funds. Some of the most academically accomplished international applicants to Rutgers may be offered scholarships. The process is very competitive as a limited number of scholarships are available each year.


Notification of Rutgers scholarship awards is sent after an offer of admission. Scholarships are awarded for a total of four years of undergraduate education, and recipients will be expected to maintain a minimum of a 3.0 grade-point average.
