Dual Degree Applicants

Master of Science in Mathematics with Option in Mathematical Finance as a Second Degree for Current Rutgers Graduate Degree Students

The Graduate School-New Brunswick allows students who are current graduate degree candidates at Rutgers to earn an additional Master of Science Degree in another field:
  • PhD candidates can remain coded in their current graduate program until they complete their PhD degree, after which they must be recoded as students in the program, MS Mathematics with Option in Mathematical Finance (16643).
  • MS candidates can remain coded in their current graduate program until they complete their current MS degree or take 12 credits to be counted towards the MS Mathematics with Option in Mathematical Finance, whichever comes first: after this point, they must be recoded as students in the program, MS Mathematics with Option in Mathematical Finance (16643).
Current Rutgers graduate students (in any field) who wish to earn a Master of Science in Mathematics with Option in Mathematical Finance as a second degree should
  • Have fulfilled the program prerequisites.
  • Have completed no more than twelve (12) credits of courses in the program already.
  • Submit the complete application package (parts one and two), with these adjustments:
    • Cover letter and résumé replace the Graduate Admissions Application Form,
    • GRE scores and transcripts may be unofficial copies,
    • TOEFL scores or financial documentation are not required.
  • Send the complete application package to the Mathematical Finance Program Administrator and not to the Office of Graduate and Professional Admissions. Do not send application materials by email unless requested.
  • Please contact us if you need further information.
  • Admission to the program is competitive. Applications are reviewed on the same schedule as external applicants.
  • Applicants are notified by email of the Admission Committee decision.
  • Students who are admitted should consult the rules regarding transfer credit.
