Applying for the Graduation

The Rutgers School of Business–Camden awards degrees three times a year: Fall (August / October), Winter (January), and Spring (May). To be considered for graduation, pending graduate students must submit a Diploma Application online within the time frames outlined below.

It is the responsibility of each student to ensure that all the graduation requirements of the school, including certification of the major, have been fully met well before the expected date of graduation. Student records are officially closed upon graduation. A graduate cannot retroactively improve his or her cumulative grade-point average by completing work or taking additional courses after the degree has been conferred.

Application Periods:

Students graduating in August, October, and January participate in the commencement ceremony in the following May. 

**Unless the application is filed by the appropriate deadline, the degree is not conferred and graduation is delayed.**

What happens if degree requirements are not met?

Individuals who have not met their requirements for graduation will be notified. If a problem is discovered during the final certification process, notification will be made by certified mail or email. Students who are ineligible to graduate based on their grades will be notified by phone or email.

***Only students who have successfully completed all graduation requirements may participate in the commencement ceremony.***

BLDP Application

The Fall 2022 Application is now open! 

Priority will be given to applications received by July 31. Applications are accepted until all seats are filled. Space is limited, so apply early!

The seminar application process is our gateway for entry into the program. Upon acceptance into BLDP, students will be emailed their acceptance letter plus a special permission number allowing registration for the BLDP seminar.


Seminar applications are solicited each semester and require the following:

  1. Completed application form (at the bottom of this page),
  2. Personal essay
  3. Two (2) letters of recommendation (one academic; one other)

Rutgers-Camden students are invited to apply to apply for enrollment in the BLDP seminar. All applicants are expected to meet both of the following selection criteria:  (1) have sophomore standing or above and (2) have an overall GPA of 3.0 or above. First-semester transfer students will be evaluated based on their GPA earned at Rutgers. Students who fail to meet these admission criteria may still be allowed to apply for (and possibly enroll in) the BLDP seminar, but they will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

The director balances evaluations to make final decisions on people accepted for the seminar (up to a maximum of 15-20 each semester).

Students who are admitted to the BDLP are required to adopt the BLDP Code of Conduct. A signed contract is required from each student.

Students may count activities toward “leadership units” that were initiated prior to taking a seminar, as long as those activities occured primarily during their enrollment in their academic program.

Application for Admission to BLDP Seminar

Applications for the BLDP Seminar will be ongoing until class is filled.
