First-Year Student Application Process

By submitting this application, you acknowledge your desire to participate in one of the LLCs listed below. If you are accepted to the LLC, you will be assigned LLC housing and you will be removed from the housing selection process. You will not be able to select housing elsewhere.
  1. Take your placement testing ASAP if you are a first-year. Most of the communities require Basic Composition or higher and we cannot accept you into a community until we have reviewed your placement scores.
    • Business and Health and Medicine require math and English scores.
    • French Language and Culture require French scores.
    • If you have APed out of the courses related to the LLC of your choice, this opportunity is likely not the best fit for you as you will not be able to take the courses affiliated with the LLC. You may upload scores for our office to review here.
  2. Go to oncampus.rutgers.edu for your housing application. When you arrive to the Learning Communities page on the housing application, utilize the drop-down box to select a living-learning community based on an interest area you would like to explore. Remember you must live in the designated residence hall and take the associated course(s) in order to participate in our LLCs. The priority deadline for applications is June 7, but we will accept applications after this date if there is space.  BE SURE TO REVIEW THE REQUIREMENTS AND ELIGIBILITY SECTIONS BEFORE YOU APPLY FOR A COMMUNITY THROUGH THE HOUSING APPLICATION.
  3. The following LLCs require a brief supplemental application in addition to the housing application. The supplemental application can be found here for: Entrepreneurship and Innovation LLC, Business Discovery House, and Health and Medicine.
  4. After we check your testing placement scores and review your housing and supplemental application (if applicable) we will notify you via email whether your application has been accepted or declined. Ensure the email you list on your application is one you can check after you’ve graduated from your current institution/left your previous institution. If your application is accepted, you will be automatically enrolled into the LLC if there is a COMPLETED housing application on file, and you will be sent an acceptance email to the email listed on your housing application.  If you wish to no longer participate, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to immediately respond to our email and make us aware of your wish to decline the LLC. If we decline your application, you will be provided an opportunity to apply for a different LLC if space and time allows. Generally, the earlier you apply, the sooner we can notify you.
  5. We will provide you with a special permission number to register yourself for the respective course(s). You must register for a specific section of the course in order to participate in LLCs, and notify us when you have done so.
