Those first-year students offered admission through the DDP will begin their studies by enrolling at a New Jersey community college. Upon completion of an associate of arts or an associate of science degree at the community college, DDP participants will be admitted to at least one college of Rutgers University provided a cumulative grade-point-average of 3.0 has been achieved in a Recommended Transfer Program. 

To be among the select group of students considered for this program, New Jersey high school students should complete a Rutgers application by the priority application date specified at the Rutgers University Undergraduate Admissions website: https://admissions.rutgers.edu/apply/dates-deadlines. No separate DDP application is required.
