Rutgers-Drew Graduate Student Cooperative Exchange


In 2002 the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies at Drew University and the School of Graduate Studies at Rutgers University entered into an exchange program for their students. The exchange is restricted to matriculated students, the courses must be graduate level by definition, must be applicable to the student’s degree program, and must be unavailable at the student’s institution. Participation by an individual student is limited to one or two courses per semester.

Tuition is assessed and collected by the home institution. There is no exchange of funds between the institutions.


Rutgers to Drew

Student obtains an approval form from the Registrar or Dean. The student must secure the approval signatures of h/her adviser and dean and the course instructor(s). If approved, the student must register at Rutgers for the pseudo-course, DREW EXCHANGE, 16:001:819, normally for three credits. These credits generate tuition charges.

The student sends a copy of the approved form to the Rutgers Registrar for information and one copy to the Dean’s Office, Caspersen School of Graduate Studies.

At the end of the semester Drew sends a graded and signed copy of the form to the Rutgers Registrar. The Registrar posts the course title, number, credits, and Drew grade on the exchange course screen. Degree credit indicator will be set to ‘Y’ and GPA indicator to ‘N’. The print indicator on the pseudo-course is set to ‘N”. (The course will not be posted unless the student has registered for the pseudo-course.)

Drew to Rutgers

The procedure works the same as above. The Rutgers Registrar will attach a copy of the approved approval form to the initial class roster and to the final class roster, for assignment of a grade. The Registrar will sign the form when graded and forward to the Drew Graduate School Office.


Approval of this exchange program was announced by the Vice Dean of the School of Graduate Studies, in October 2002.
