Application Process

Visiting Students, with qualifying academic records, have the opportunity to attend Rutgers University during the Fall and Spring semesters on a non-degree basis. They may enroll in undergraduate and graduate-level college courses online or in the classroom, across multiple disciplines on all three main campuses, and satellite facilities across the state.

PLEASE NOTE: We strongly encourage students to review the "Frequently Asked Questions" and Schedule of Classes webpages prior to submitting an application.

Disclaimer:  Registration for courses at Rutgers University as a Visiting Continuing Studies Student in no way guarantees admission to a degree program at the University. Subsequent transferability of courses to a degree program either at Rutgers or elsewhere is determined solely by the degree program from the home academic institution.  Visiting students matriculating at other colleges should have their course selections approved by their home institution prior to registration to insure credit transfer.

Visiting students are also not eligible to register for courses in the following schools:

School of Engineering (interested in registering for courses offered by SoE? Please click here.)
Rutgers Business School
Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy
Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences
Graduate School of Management
School of Law

Please Note:  Due to the high demand of English, Math, science and computer science courses, visiting students are not eligible to register for courses under these disciplines. Special permission cannot be granted for closed courses. 

Visiting students can enroll for a maximum of 12 credits overall (6 per semester) and will be required to be in good academic standing (2.0 GPA or greater). Visiting Students are not eligible to earn a degree, and are not eligible to receive financial aid.

Students who have completed a registration inquiry form during the summer or winter term, and wish to register for the academic year, MUST complete an application.
