Individuals may apply after due dates have passed. However, those who apply after the due dates or whose files remain incomplete after due dates for credentials submission have passed will be withdrawn from admissions consideration if their school(s) of application meet enrollment goals before University Undergraduate Admissions reviews their applications.

* Required credentials are due two weeks after this date. For more information, please see the credentials required of first year applicants or the credentials required of transfer applicants. Your Rutgers Status displays updates after required credentials are received.

**Admissions decisions will be posted online via “Your Rutgers Status” no later than this date.

^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.
