Admission and Information for Prospective Students

The Honors College is redefining what an interdisciplinary education can be by inviting honors students from diverse disciplines such as engineering, dance, and English to live and work together to tackle global issues and learn how to transform ideas into action. This is a place where intellectual curiosity, hands-on knowledge, interdisciplinary collaboration, service, and compassion for one another are central to the student experience. From our small community, students have access to Rutgers' vast resources as a renowned research university.
