Material Submission
All materials for your application should be submitted online to be received at the Office of Graduate Admissions before the deadline:

ASB Annex I

Financing Degree
Please note that there is no Rutgers fellowship or scholarship support available for Master of Science in Mathematics students pursuing the Option in Mathematical Finance. Students are expected to fund their course of study at Rutgers in its entirety. Those who have a grant or fellowship from an outside source are welcome to apply it toward the tuition cost of the program. United States citizens or permanent residents may be eligible to apply for student loans.
The exact cost of the program depends on choices made by each student, but it will be less than one half the cost of equivalent programs offered by private universities. Rutgers offers outstanding graduate programs of excellent value to its students.
Please visit Student Accounting Financial Services for the Mathematical Finance Tuition and Fee schedules in the New Brunswick Graduate School page for the current year. (The Graduate School–New Brunswick Standard Tuition rates do not apply to the MS in Mathematics with Option in Mathematical Finance.) Official tuition rates for the program are confirmed each year by the University Board of Governors shortly after July 15 and generally increase relative to the previous year.
International applicants who are notified that they have been recommended by our program for admission to the Graduate School–New Brunswick will need to submit financial documentation indicating sufficient funds to support their plan of study before they are offered admission by the Graduate School–New Brunswick and visa applications processed.


Incomplete Applications
Decisions cannot be rendered on incomplete applications. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that all required documents are available for review by the deadline. Please contact Graduate Admissions for application decision status or to check that your application is complete (except for receipt of Supplementary Form or Prerequisite Course Description List). Please consult the Graduate Admissions FAQ for solutions to common application problems.

Successful applicants will receive a Recommendation for Admission from the Mathematical Finance Program by email and an official offer of admission (domestic students) or request for financial documentation (international students) from the Graduate School-New Brunswick. Because communication between our program and applicants is now exclusively by email.
