Rutgers and Princeton Universities have had an exchange program since 1964. This informal program does not require admission to or registration at the host institution, and no funds are exchanged between the two universities. The student pays tuition only at his or her home institution. The policies of this program stipulate that (1) participants must be matriculating candidates for a doctoral program; (2) exchange is limited to one or two graduate courses per semester per student; and (3) the courses must be part of the student's degree program and unavailable at the home institution. To participate, a Rutgers student must request permission from the graduate director or adviser and must register for 16:001:816 Princeton Exchange (BA) (normally 3 credits). In addition, a student must have a form (obtained from the Rutgers graduate registrar) signed by the graduate program, dean, and Princeton course instructor. This form is then submitted to the dean of the Graduate School, Princeton University. Princeton grades are assigned and are recorded on the student's record via this form.
