The ROSE Program - Beijing

The Rutgers Overseas Semester Experience (ROSE) program offers Chinese students the opportunity to experience their first semester as a Rutgers student at a partner university campus in China. The on-campus locations include Beijing, Guangzhou, Hainan, and Shanghai. Participating in the ROSE program will help students navigate their first semester at Rutgers while preparing for the eventual transition to campus in New Jersey.

By partnering with the world renown Guanghua School of Management at Peking University (a member of the elite C9 League of Chinese Universities), Rutgers has created an opportunity for first-year, Chinese international students to study at the most prestigious higher education institution in China, regarded as a leader among business schools in China. Rutgers students would have the option to take Rutgers courses on-site at PKU choosing three  in addition to online coursework in consultation with your Rutgers, first year dean or advisor. 

Students who are placed at Guanghua School of Management will be required to understand and agree to the requirements for course options and campus access. In order to register for the three on-site courses, students must first pass their placement tests for Math 135. While ROSE housing will be offer to create a more cohesive Rutgers community, housing will be located off campus, approximately 3km away from the classroom. Access to the PKU campus will be dependent on the operating status of the university campus in the wake of COVID-19.

Campus Location & Access

Beijing

The Rutgers-Guanghua School of Management at Peking University (PKU) ROSE program will be located at Peking University’s Guanghua Dayuan classroom building (off campus). Although the classrooms are not located on campus, they are within walking distance of the ROSE program housing option. 

Campus access: The degree of campus access will depend on Peking University’s fall operation status. If Peking is open and running at normal capacity, students in the Rutgers-Guanghua ROSE program will be issued a student card that will give them non-matriculated Peking student access to the campus (due to COVID-19 regulations at Peking, access to dining halls and libraries will not be available). In the event Peking University does not run at normal capacity, ROSE students may be denied access to the campus. 

Academics

ROSE will consist of a combination of in-person classes,  taught by Chinese partner professors and online coursework taught by Rutgers professors. ROSE will allow students to interact with classmates in China, New Jersey and around the world creating a strong Rutgers community. Students will be accessing the same materials and syllabi that are used on the Rutgers campuses in New Jersey for both in-person and online classes.  

Online Rutgers courses: Students will work with their Rutgers first-year dean or school advisor to determine which online classes offered by Rutgers will be required for students to take in addition to the on campus courses. 

In-person Rutgers courses: An estimated three (3) Rutgers courses will be taught by Peking University and Rutgers faculty in off campus classrooms. Students may need to pass placement tests for Math 135 to attend these classes. Students would work with their school advisors to determine which courses of the three classes to take. Below is a tentative course list that will be offered*: 

 MATH 135  Calculus I for Life & Social Sciences  4 credits 
 CS 170  Computer Application for Business (COMP APPS-BUSINESS)  3 credits 
 Business 100  Introduction to Business  (RBS taught)  3 credits 
   Intro to Management (RBS taught recitation)  3 credits


You will need to ensure that you are registered as a full time student according to Rutgers University requirements. This means a course load of 12-18 credits during the fall 2020 semester with a combination of both online and on-campus courses. You will receive 2-4 credits per class taken with the ROSE program, depending on course selection.  

* The final course offering might vary slightly due to final student enrollment. The current course listed are preliminary courses that may be offered.

Housing and Meals

Rutgers students can select between housing options that include ROSE off campus housing or commuting from home. For more information on pricing, see the financial section below. 

1. Off-Campus Hotel - For ROSE housing, students will stay at off-campus hotels that are approximately 3km away from the classrooms. Hotels will include either single or double occupancy rooms with private bathroom and showers, as well as access to gyms and dining. Through ROSE housing, Rutgers students will experience a similar living community to that on-campus in New Jersey.  Prices are listed below. Students who do not sign up or pay before the July 6 deadline are subject to higher prices for housing.

2. Commuting - Students have the choice to waive ROSE housing. If a student initially decides to commute before the start of the semester and later prefers hotel housing, Rutgers will not be able to guarantee availability. If space is available, housing prices may increase based on partner costs at that time 

Meals: Meals are not included in this housing option and are the responsibility of the student. Three meals a day are available in the campus cafeterias at a moderate price, providing campus is operational. 

Internet: ROSE hotel rooms and classrooms are equipped with internet connection.  

Rutgers Resources: Students will still be able to access and receive many of the resources available to students in New Jersey including online library access, student services, on-line programming, and other services. 

 

DEPOSITS, WITHDRAWAL, AND DISCLAIMER


Program Fee Deposit: A $500 deposit will be due upon final location assignment to secure a spot in the ROSE program at this location. The deposit will be applied against your student tuition bill. All deposits will be due between June 29, 2020 and July 6, 2020. 

Housing Deposit: If students select ROSE housing, a deposit of $800 will be required to secure the room. Upon receipt of your placement for housing will be confirmed. Deposits are due between June 29, 2020 and July 6, 2020. The housing deposit becomes non-refundable after July 17, 2020. 

Late Application: If a full application, including payment of deposits is received after the July 6th, the prices for housing may be higher than reflected below.

Withdrawal: The Rutgers-Guanghua ROSE program option is one of several options available to Rutgers first year undergraduates. Students maintain the ability to choose to go fully-online before the start of classes on September 2, 2020. 

Disclaimer: The Rutgers-Guanghua ROSE program option is still under final negotiations and may be subject to change. The program is also contingent upon the normal operating status of our partner university as well as government and health regulations. The program may be cancelled at any time if deemed necessary for student’s health and safety. In such a scenario, students may have the option of transferring to another location if spacing is available, or they may automatically revert to a fully-online first semester course option.
