Please be aware that Rutgers University has instituted a COVID-19 vaccination requirement for incoming students. Read more about it here and be sure to upload your vaccination documentation by August 1.
International students should plan on arriving sometime during the week of August 26. You should have received a packet of information together with your I-20 from admissions. This will include an International Student Orientation brochure from the Rutgers Global Services. Rutgers Global Services orientation activities will take place the week of August 28. Information on International Student Orientation can be found on this website.
When you arrive, be sure to check-in online with Rutgers Global- International Student and Scholar Services through the RGlobal portal. They have provided a pre and post-arrival guide to help you sort out all the to-dos after you arrive at Rutgers. Be sure to attend a Staying in Legal Status workshop during the International Student Orientation where you will receive information and paperwork necessary for on-campus employment. You will need to provide us with the International Payroll Form after attending the workshop.
