Prospective Students

FOREIGN APPLICANTS – Master’s Students

Thank you for your interest in the Rutgers School of Graduate Studies, Newark Health Science Campus. Please feel free to contact us if you have any specific questions.

Follow the application directions on the Master’s Program web page in the Prospective Students section. Please note that we cannot preview your credentials or indicate the likelihood of acceptance prior to completion of your application. The application fee is not refundable.

The TOEFL iBT is required of all foreign students originating from countries where English is not the primary language, with a minimum score of 80 being expected.

If you will receive your Baccalaureate degree later than June, do not apply for the fall semester. Similarly, if you will receive your Baccalaureate degree later than October, do not apply for the spring semester. Visa forms cannot be sent until you have been accepted by the Graduate School and we receive evidence that the degree has been awarded.

Foreign applicants applying to the Master’s or Certificate programs, or as a non-matriculated student, who have earned a degree overseas, must also provide a translated transcript using one of the following approved credentialing services:
