International Scholars & Students
Rutgers has a number of short-term, non-degree programs—these can be exclusively for international students or they can be programs for both international and domestic students. These do not award a degree to the participant and are often focused on a specific skill or outcome that leads to the "attainment of a specific educational or professional objective.”
We help sponsor many different types of short term, non-degree programs and a Student Internship Program; these can range from one week to one year; and students can come to us on an F-1 or J-1 visa and maintain legal status by following the full time study requirement. Please note that you cannot register as a student in a short-term non-degree program on a B-1 or B-2 business or visitor tourist visa.
Rutgers departments can sponsor international students for eligible non-degree or internship opportunities; please review the sponsoring international student procedures.
