Students wishing to change their status within a graduate program,
such as from nonmatriculated to matriculated or from master's to
doctorate, should file the appropriate form with the Office of the Dean
of the Graduate School.
Any student who has earned a terminal
degree in the Graduate School-New Brunswick and who desires to continue
as a nonmatriculated student should apply for a change of status. In
this case, application must be made without any lapse in registration
to avoid the need to apply for readmission. The form for this purpose may be found at http://gsnb.rutgers.edu/resources/graduate-student-forms. International students must obtain clearance from the Center for Global Services as part of the process for accomplishing a change in status.
