To be admitted as an international student, individuals must be able to indicate their ability to financially support themselves while studying at Rutgers. Additionally, International students are not eligible for federally funded financial aid or scholarships. The Student Accounting, Billing, and Cashier Services at Rutgers ensure proper billing of fees and provides professional support for all billing and term-bill related questions. We have offered a few additional resources below to assist with any financial related questions.
- Rutgers Global Office of International Student Services: Find answers to questions about international wire transfers, authorizing parents/third parties to make payments, and information on opening a U.S. Bank Account. Additional links to SEVIS related fees.
- Rutgers One Stop: Cross-functional services including financial aid, student accounts, and registration; acts as the single point of service for all student related questions. Students can visit in person or submit a ticket online.
- Financial Services Center: Find all your accounting needs in one location! Students can estimate their total cost of attendance, pay their term bills, and much more.
- International Student Scholarships: While international students are not eligible for federally funded aid, they are still eligible for some Rutgers specific scholarships. International students are considered for entry scholarships during the application process and can apply for a select number of scholarships from SEBS after they have enrolled. No scholarships are guaranteed, and they are extremely competitive. Graduate students may be eligible for additional funding depending on many different factors. Students should consult their advisors and research opportunities through the School for Graduate Studies.
- Office of Global Engagement: International students are eligible to apply for funding to support studying abroad on a Rutgers approved program or independent study that is different from their full-time enrollment in New Brunswick as part of the SEBS initiative. International students can study abroad for a full semester, a winter, summer, or spring break program.
Emergency Financial Support
While international students are required to indicate their ability to fully pay for a Rutgers degree when they apply, emergencies happen. The School of Environmental and Biological Sciences is committed to supporting all our students while they are enrolled with us, and the Office of Global Engagement has established a limited emergency support fund in partnership with the SEBS Dean’s Office for all international undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in an eligible SEBS program. An emergency is considered a sudden and unexpected inability to pay for school related fees such as housing, food, transportation, supplies, and tuition. Emergency funding is not for personal items such as phones and laptops. Please contact an Office of Global Engagement Advisor to learn more about the process and how to apply.
