Molecular Biosciences Programs - Orientation 2019

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 28 - August 30.  Orientation packets will be available for pick-up in our office (Nelson Lab, A202) by August 23.

International Students

International students should plan on arriving sometime during the week of August 19. 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 26 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.
