International Scholars & Students
Rutgers Global–International Student and Scholar Services offers international students advising on immigration and visa processing, but we provide you with much more than that. Our dedicated student advisers serve about 8,000 international students from 115 countries enrolled in Rutgers–New Brunswick and RBHS. Whether you are looking to take a reduced credit load, apply for curricular practical training (CPT), or find out about health insurance options—and much more—we can advise you.
See Employment Workshop Schedule > (please note to arrive to each workshop on time)
Students can check in (mandatory upon arrival to Rutgers) and keep track of your visa status documents by logging into the RGLOBAL online portal. International students enrolled at Rutgers in F-1 or J-1 status can find information on topics such as employment, academic status and changes, travel and visa considerations, and more. Visit our Maintaining Legal Status page to find general information on how to maintain your F-1 or J-1 status.
Graduating? We provide assistance to graduating students to help you understand what you are required to do and how long you are permitted to remain in the United States after graduation—if you choose to continue your work or study in the United States, we can also help you identify, plan, and execute other post-graduation options.
