Rutgers offers our incoming transfer students a multitude of learning community offerings. Students in learning communities will enjoy the benefits of sharing common residential and academic experiences while making new friends, exploring common interests and being a part of a close community of peers. We are excited for your participation in a Rutgers Learning Community. These programs will provide you with an opportunity to connect to a community of faculty, staff, and fellow students and to receive individualized attention to build foundations for success in your first year and beyond.
Take your placement testing ASAP. Most of the communities listed require Basic Composition or higher and we cannot accept you into a community until we have reviewed your placement scores. Complete your application ASAP, and no later than Sunday, July 19. Don’t wait, APPLY TODAY.
