Renewal of Financial Assistance
When we admit a student with financial assistance, we usually commit to offering the assistance for a total of four years if the student makes satisfactory progress in the program and performs their duties as a teaching assistant adequately. Students should consult the letter they received when they were admitted for the exact terms of this commitment.
Rutgers is a publicly funded university, and so renewal of financial assistance is also contingent on the availability of funds, but this has never been a problem in the past, because the university makes the continuation of financial assistance a top priority.
For a full picture of policies on financial assistance, one should consult both this page and the page on Financial Assistance listed under Admissions on our home page.
