NOTES

1For students who obtained an undergraduate degree in a country other than the U.S. or Canada, a course-by-course evaluation of their transcripts is required unless an advanced degree has been earned in the U.S. Among agencies providing this service is the World Education Services Inc. (WES). It is the responsibility of the student to obtain this evaluation.

2In the case of a doctorally-trained applicant, who is a faculty member at Rutgers, a Letter of Appointment by the Board of Governors or other employment official may replace the transcripts.

3If coming directly from an academic setting, a letter from a faculty member is preferred.
