I am pursuing a graduate degree at another university. What are the procedures for transferring to your program and can any credits be transferred?
A Mathematical Finance master's degree student can apply to transfer up to 12 credits for graduate courses completed at another university, with a grade of B or better, provided they replace equivalent courses in the Mathematical Finance program, and credit for such courses was not used to earn a previous undergraduate degree. Acceptance for credit towards the Mathematical Finance degree is subject to approval by the Mathematical Finance Program Director and is not automatic.Please complete the Graduate School-New Brunswick Transfer Credit Form and consult their general rules for transfer of credit, as well as the rules for transfer of credit for doctoral candidates for full details.
Students may request that courses they wish to transfer be evaluated by the Mathematical Finance Program Director after they have registered for at least one course in our program by submitting the following to the Mathematical Finance Program Administrative Assistant:
- A completed Transfer Credit Form with
- A detailed syllabus and primary textbook information for each course to be evaluated.

What is the difference between the Master of Science in Mathematical Finance (MSMF) and the Master of Quantitative Finance (MQF) programs at Rutgers?
- MSMF requires 30 credits and be completed in one year; MQF requires 48 credits and can be completed in two years.
- Rates for MSMF tuition and MQF tuition.
- MSMF admissions emphasizes mathematics prerequisites, as well as overall student record.
- MSMF curriculum emphasizes mathematical finance and stochastic analysis, numerical analysis, computational finance with Matlab & C++, statistics, and allows 2 Business electives.
