U.S. and Non-F-1 Visa Holders include: U.S. citizens; permanent residents with an Alien Registration Receipt Card (green card, I-551,I-551C); Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) grantees; I-94 holders with refugee, parole, or asylum status granted; those who have applied for and are awaiting approval regarding permanent resident (green card) status; or those that hold any visa type other than F-1. International students planning to study in the U.S. on an F-1 (student) visa should refer to the "International F-1 Visa Holders" column on the school availability chart. The School of Nursing-Newark and School of Nursing-New Brunswick requires applicants to be U.S. citizens or permanent residents (green card holders).

*Required credentials are due two weeks later than the Application Due Date. For more information, please see the credentials required of first-year applicants or the credentials required of transfer applicants. Your Rutgers Status screen displays updates after required credentials are received.

+These are not deadlines. You may apply after due dates have passed. However, if you apply after the due dates or if your file remains incomplete after due dates for credentials submission have passed, you will be withdrawn from admissions consideration if your school(s) of application meet enrollment goals before Undergraduate Admissions reviews your application.

**Admissions decisions will be posted online via your Rutgers Status screen no later than this date, except for Mason Gross School of the Arts. Because of portfolio review and auditions, early action and regular admission notification dates do not apply for applicants to Mason Gross School of the Arts. Mason Gross School of the Arts first-year applicants will be notified of admissions decisions by April 1.

^Applying to Rutgers by our fall early action date does not restrict students from applying to other colleges or universities, and Rutgers early action decisions are not binding.

 

Application due dates for the School of Health Professions are based on the degree program.
