How to Apply to Douglass

Each year, Douglass Residential College enrolls approximately 500 out of the over 4,000 new women students who are admitted to Rutgers. Current Rutgers students can also join Douglass anytime from their first year through their third year. We are an intentionally small community so that members receive personal attention and get to know each other in a friendly, close-knit atmosphere. Douglass enrolls both commuters and residential students.

In order to become a member of Douglass Residential College, you must first be admitted to Rutgers University—New Brunswick. You can apply to Rutgers through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
