Molecular Biosciences Programs - Orientation 2020

Welcome to the Molecular Biosciences Programs Orientation Space!  Congratulations on being admitted to our PhD Program or MMG/CDB MS Programs.  We look forward to seeing you in the Fall.


This year's Molecular Biosciences Orientation Program will be held from August 24 - August 28.  Many of the orientation events/workshops will be held remotely via Webex and Canvas.  We will share specific details when we receive further information.  Please continue to check this page for updates as we monitor the COVID-19 situation.

International Students

International students should plan on arriving sometime during the week of August 17. 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- International Student and Scholar Services International Student. The International Student Orientation is Monday, August 24, 9 am. They will post a detailed schedule on their website in the coming months.  

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 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.


For those who will be living in RU housing -- please contact on-campus housing directly to confirm your arrangements and check in times.
