Note: Please consult the separate application and tuition information if you wish to take one or more of our prerequisite courses as a non-degree ("non-matriculated") undergraduate student.Non-degree students can take courses from the curriculum for the MS in Mathematics Degree with Option in Mathematical Finance. If you are not enrolled in a degree program at Rutgers and do not wish to pursue the MS degree, you should submit the application package (steps one and two) as a non-degreegraduate student, with the following adjustments:
- Transcripts may be unofficial.
- Test scores (GRE, TOEFL), letters of recommendation, or personal statement are not required.
- Résumé is recommended.
When applying to Rutgers as a non-degree mathematics graduate student, you may choose to apply as a standard mathematics (16640) or mathematical finance (16643) graduate student. Which option you choose affects your tuition rates, your ability to enroll in certain mathematical finance courses, and it may affect how your major field of study is desigated on your Rutgers transcripts (whether standard mathematics option or option in mathematical finance). There is also a limit on the number of credits you can take while a non-degree student and later redesignate for degree credit, so we ask that you read the following information carefully. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
