Commuter Students at Douglass

Douglass welcomes commuter students to the College and recognizes the particular needs of the commuter population. Even as a commuter, you will quickly learn to feel at home on Douglass through special programs hosted by The Beehives Commuter Association.

Transfer Students

Students who transfer to Rutgers from various four and two-year schools face similar challenges: from adjusting to the size and expectations of Rutgers to new policies and requirements, to multiple campuses, bus routes, and a dizzying array of opportunities from which to choose. The Douglass staff, deans, and advisors at Douglass are very aware of the challenges that transfer students experience, especially upon arrival.

Nontraditional Students (out of H.S. 5+ years)

Douglass recognizes that adult women students require different kinds of support and guidance than traditional aged college students. The Mary I. Bunting Program recognizes the needs of students who wish to complete college, either part-time or full-time, later in their lives and careers. Students receive individualized mentoring, special housing, and more.

Scholarships at Douglass

Douglass has moved to invitation-only scholarship applications for eligible students through their Rutgers official email addresses. Eligible Douglass students will be invited to apply for Douglass scholarships on an annual basis in the spring. The Douglass Scholarship committee will award all Douglass scholarships according to the scholarship criteria. Students will be notified over the summer if they have been selected to receive a Douglass scholarship.

We strongly recommend that students interested in scholarship funding review information available from the Office of Financial Aid, and complete the annual FAFSA and all relevant financial aid paperwork.
