International Applicants to the Master of Information Technology program
In addition to the MIT Application Checklist, you should be aware of these special instructions which apply to your application for admission. Because of the additional documentation required, please start the admissions process as soon as possible and be sure to adhere to all application deadlines.
Master of Information Technology applicants do not need to have their transcripts evaluated unless advised by the Rutgers Business School Admissions Committee. All post-secondary transcripts, marksheets, examination results, diplomas and degrees must be original or certified copies and be mailed in to our office. If not issued in English, a translation must be provided from a professional translation agency.
English Language Tests
If your native language is not English, you must submit test results from either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Not required of students who have obtained an undergraduate or graduate degree in the U.S. or other English speaking countries (Canada, England, etc...).
- Rutgers Business School TOEFL code: Institution Code B355
- Please contact IELTS and have your scores sent to the Master of Information Technology Program
Once you are admitted to the program
1) All admitted students must submit the non-refundable tuition deposit of $1,500.
2) For those who intend to hold F1 or J1 visas, financial documentation is required that proves sufficient funds are available to finance your education and living expenses. These documents cannot be dated more than 9 months from your start term. The MIT program starts in the Fall (September) and Spring (January); the earliest the financial documents can be dated is January of the same year for Fall admissions and April for Spring admissions. International students are not eligible for financial assistance through the University and the full-time program of study prevents most students from working significant hours to cover expenses. To document your finances, you must complete the Financial Statement. Return that form along with an original bank statement or other financial certification to the Master of Information Technology Program. The Master of Information Technology Program, along with the Office of International Student Services (OISS), will issue an I-20 form to admitted students who provide sufficient financial documentation along with the student’s admission acknowledgement form, the non-refundable tuition deposit and orientation fee.
3) All students must submit a copy of their passport.
4) Admitted students who have attended another U.S. school in the F-1 or J-1 status before joining Rutgers University must submit the International Student Advisor’s Report .
