Applying to the Rutgers Post Baccalaureate Program
Applicants are not expected to take the GRE.
Applying to the Rutgers Post-Baccalaureate Program is free of charge.
There is no deadline: we offer a rolling-admissions system. Applicants are encouraged, however, to apply by August 1st for full consideration for the Fall semester and by December 1st for the Spring.

Students are welcome to take our non-language courses to broaden their background in the field, though these may not aid in preparing for the comprehensive exam and are not counted toward the coursework minimum.
The Post-Baccalaureate program does not have any teaching component, and the Certificate earned does not qualify for NJ teacher certification (beyond helping to fulfill the credit requirement for Latin certification and providing preparation for the Latin test).
There is no funding available to defray the costs of earning a Certificate. However, as a public university, our costs are very competitive, particularly for in-state residents.
