Duration of Study and Matriculation

Matriculated students are those who have been formally admitted to the Rutgers School of Public Health in a single degree or certificate program or in a dual-degree program. Some students are accepted in nonmatriculated status and are permitted to take a maximum of 12 credits of coursework before seeking matriculation.

All requirements for the degrees must normally be completed according to the chart below. Exceptions are made for those students in dual-degree programs (e.g., M.D./M.P.H., M.P.H./M.B.A., M.S./M.P.H., M.S.W./M.P.H.) and students in Rutgers fellowship or clinical residency programs. A degree candidate in good standing, however, may request a leave of absence from the school by submitting a completed Leave of Absence form. The period granted for a leave of absence is not included in this maximum.
