    Because of the rapid rate of change in the field, students must be well grounded in the basic aspects of computer science and be capable of learning new ideas by following the research and professional literature, and by adapting independently to changes in approaches, languages, and system. Furthermore, they must have experience with computer projects of a realistic scale so as to develop confidence in their ability to think and work independently.

    Most of the graduate classes start in mid-afternoon, or later, and some begin in the evening. The exceptions are advanced research seminars. Students who have a job can get a Master's degree in our Program provided they can get some time off in the late afternoon one or two days a week. Probably it will not be possible for a student to obtain a Master's degree by taking classes only after 6PM and fairly unlikely if only taking classes that start at 4:30 or later.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.


    In addition to the general admission criteria of the Graduate School, the department requires that applicants to the M.S. program have completed an accredited undergraduate program in Computer Science, or at least taken the core prerequisite courses for the undergraduate degree as listed below: * A substantial background in mathematics * Working knowledge of high level languages, data structures, computer architecture and assembly language, algorithm design and analysis, and some elective courses in advanced undergraduate areasApplicants who have adequate knowledge of the above subjects but who have not completed all academic courses in these areas may show proficiency by obtaining a high score on the GRE Subject Test in Computer Science. All applicants are required to take the aptitude part of the GRE examination (verbal, analytic and mathematical reasoning sections). The Computer Science Subject Test is optional, but highly recommended, particularly for applicants with a non-CS background, or who have been out of school for several years.Criteria for admission currently include: * An academic record * A high score on all the GRE examinations required, and the TOEFL exam in the case of foreign students. * Strong letters of recommendation. * A clear statement, about one page in length, outlining the reasons why the applicant wishes to pursue graduate study in computer science. English Language Requirements TOEFL paper-based test score : 550 TOEFL iBT® test: 79

    If you are pursuing a master's degree or professional, terminal degree, Rutgers can help you find fellowships and scholarships to support your advanced study.
