University or Department funding can not be offered to MS students at Rutgers. We expect MS students to make their own financial arrangements. However, individual research groups are sometimes able to provide funding on a case-by-case basis to admitted MS students through their research grants. Your academic advisor can give you advice about contacting individual faculty members about opportunities for support in their research group.
Students may take CS graduate courses without being enrolled in our graduate degree programs (non-degree). There are two options:
1) Students with prior undergraduate degree in CS or related fields may apply to the CS graduate program, choosing the non-degree option. All MS admissions requirements apply, including MS application deadlines.
2) Students without undergraduate degree in CS or related fields may apply to the undergraduate CS program. Once admitted as a CS undergraduate, you are allowed to take a CS graduate course if you have taken the prerequisites and have obtained permission from the course instructor.
