+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the due dates or if your file remains incomplete after due dates for credentials submission have passed, you will be withdrawn from admissions consideration if your school(s) of application meet enrollment goals before Undergraduate Admissions reviews your application.

^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. Early action applicants will receive one or more of the following decisions by no later than the end of January: admitted, not admitted, wait list, or deferred to regular decision.

*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.

#You must apply by no later than December 1 to be considered for merit-based scholarships.

**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.

++Transfer applicants to Mason Gross School of the Arts should closely review the audition dates listed here. Certain audition locations are only offered before the February 1 transfer application deadline.
