Rutgers-Princeton Cooperative Exchange Program
Rutgers University and Princeton University have been engaged in an
exchange program since 1964. The program is informal in that admission
to and registration at the host institution are not required. No funds
are exchanged between the two institutions; the student pays tuition
only at the home institution. Bloustein School students will find the
programs of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International
Affairs particularly of interest. Forms and policies are available from
the Bloustein School's Office of Student and Academic Services.
New Brunswick Theological Seminary and Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Exchanges
Cross-registration is available in each of these two schools. Forms are available at the Office of the Registrar.
