Office Of The Registrar, New Brunswick

Dual Degree Program between EJBSPP and NJIT - MCRP and MIP

Policy

In 2004 The New Jersey Institute of Technology and the Rutgers UIniversity Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy entered into an agreement to establish a dual degree program leading to the MIP at NJIT and the MCRP at EJBPPP.

General Guidelines

Students will affiliate primarily with either school.

Students will pay tuition to the host school, only.

There will be no exchange of tuition monies between the schools.

Students must be admitted as degree students at both institutions at the appropriate time, before taking a course at either institution.

All courses taken at both institutions will show on the transcripts of both schools, but only 6 credits will be transferred from the host school to the home school.

Procedures

For students affiliated with EJBSPPP. Students admitted to the MCRP and wishing to earn the MIP must be admitted to the MIP program at NJIT, and will register for courses at EJBSPP and, when taking coursework at NJIT, will register for 34:001:817, BA, E credits, for the number of credits they are taking at NJIT. NJIT will develop registration procedures for the students and will ensure that their tuition and fee charges are waived.

Prior to completion of the Rutgers portion of the MCRP program the deanís office will notify the Graduate Registrar in New Brunswick to add twelve transfer credits for specific courses taken at NJIT.

Upon completion of the MIP program, the student will request that a transcript from NJIT be sent to the deanís office at Bloustein. The deanís office will send a memo to the New Brunswick Graduate Registrar asking that the courses and titles be entered on the Rutgers transcript as exchange courses. The GPA and degree credit indicators should be set to N. (The courses that have previously been transferred from NJIT will not be entered as exchange courses.) The following comment will be added to the Narrative screen: "Student was enrolled in a dual degree program leading to the MIP degree at NJIT and the MCRP." The external transcript print indicator for all iterations of 34:001:817 will be set to N at this time. The MCRP will be added to the transcript in accordance with existing degree posting procedures.

For students affiliated with NJIT. Students admitted to the MIP program and wishing to earn the MCRP must be admitted to the MCRP program. Students will register for courses as Bloustein students. Students must be identified to the Rutgers Registrar as dual degree students in this program. The Registrar will code the students with a special billing code (to be created). Tuition and fees will be waived based on the billing code. The MCRP will be added to the transcript in accordance with existing degree posting procedures. The following comment will be added to the Narrative screen: "Student was enrolled in a dual degree program leading to the MIP degree at NJIT and the MCRP." {see question above.}

NJIT will develop procedures for generating charges and billing these students at NJIT rates for coursework taken at Rutgers.

NJIT will develop procedures for listing all Rutgers courses on the NJIT transcript and for the transferring of 12 credits from the MCRP program.

Authority

This program was approved by the Deans and Vice Presidents for Academic Affairs at both institutions.
