For over 250 years, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, has been a leading national research institution. Comprising three universities, Rutgers provides rigorous academics and engaging campus life at a great value.
Of the close to 50,000 undergraduate students in Rutgers-New Brunswick, the Office of Transfer and Non-Traditional Students is dedicated to serving the needs of roughly nine percent of undergraduate nontraditional students who are adults, veterans and students with children. Whether you're interested in registering for one course or considering enrolling in a degree program, we're here to help you take the next steps from preadmission, admissions, enrollment, support and ultimately graduation.
In order to attend Rutgers, future undergraduate students must complete an application. Before completing an application, nontraditional student applicants are encouraged to visit our Future Transfer Students site to help you with the preadmissions process before you apply and pay any fees.
