    Description

    Students who wish to pursue individualized majors in the liberal arts and sciences other than those regularly available through the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) may make an application in writing to the SAS dean for undergraduate education. To be considered for approval, applications must include a statement describing the student's educational objectives, a proposed program of courses, and the signatures of three faculty sponsors from at least two different departments.

    Two of the three faculty sponsors must be faculty members of the School of Arts and Sciences, and one must agree to serve as major adviser. Application forms for the individualized major can be obtained in the Office of Academic Services of the School of Arts and Sciences. Satisfactory completion of this major leads to a bachelor of arts degree.

    Course Content

    Students in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences may elect to design an independent major program if none of the existing undergraduate programs satisfies their needs. Students considering submitting a proposal for an independent major should initially consult the program director for instructions.

    Proposals must include a rationale for the program, the degree sought, a list of courses taken (and to be taken) in fulfillment of the school's degree requirements, and the signature of a faculty member who has agreed to serve as adviser. Students ordinarily should submit proposals prior to the beginning of the junior year. Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degrees available.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

    Funding

    Rutgers uses your FAFSA to develop a financial-aid package based on your qualifications, financial need and the funds available to the university. Your package may include any or a combination of these major financial aid sources:

    • Gift aid does not require repayment and is divided into three categories: grants (which recognize financial need) and scholarships and awards (which recognize academic merit, special talents, or other achievements).
    • Loans must be repaid (usually after graduation) and can come from private lenders as well as federal, state and university sources.
    • Work-study allows students to earn money for college expenses while gaining valuable skills - often in their intended field.
