Admitted! What’s Next?

You just checked your status and you have been accepted.  Congratulations and welcome to Rutgers!  

The Admissions Packet Is on the Way

You will receive an admissions packet via U.S. mail within several days after you are formally admitted. The packet contains your formal certificate of admission along with information for admitted students. In most cases, you will also receive additional information separately from the graduate school and program to which you have been admitted.

Let Us Know Your Decision

For most programs, you can accept or decline your offer of admission online from your status site. If you do not see the option to accept or decline your offer on the status site, then you should contact the program to find out how to inform us of your decision.

Obtain Your NetID

All enrolling students are assigned a Rutgers unique identifier known as a NetID, which allows you to access many of the electronic services available to you at Rutgers, including registering for classes.

Your NetID is different than your RUID. Your RUID is used in place of a social security number to identify you on class rosters and with most university departments. It is important for placement tests, advising, and anything Rutgers-related.

Register for Classes

Once you decide to enroll, you will want to register for classes. You can find information on how to register online and dates for registration on the registrar’s website. Get in touch with the graduate program to which you were admitted to determine your classes.

Pay Your Term Bill

You will be able to pay your term bill after you register.  Student Accounting Financial Services will email you when your term bill is available online. In general, fall term bills are available in July and are due in August and spring term bills are avaiiable in November and are due in January.

Financial Aid

You will receive information on merit-based financial support and assistantships directly from your program. To learn about need-based aid, you should visit the Office of Financial Aid.
