How to Receive your Tuition Scholarship

1. Program Admission Application

Complete the Admissions Application for the degree or certificate program, including: the On-Campus MBA, Online MBA, Professional MBA, Online Master of Accounting, Online MS in Business Analytics, and graduate certificate programs.
*For eligible employees, your application fee will be waived – please be sure to contact Amelia Nowak, Graduate Programs Coordinator, when you complete your application to add the waiver to the application system!

2. Employment Verification Letter

Eligible employees should request a “Network Discount Employment Verification Letter” from EdAssist. To request the letter, please submit a help desk request in the EdAssist tuition assistance portal or call EdAssist to make the request. Be sure to indicate that you are requesting the Verification Letter in order to receive the Rutgers’ Corporate Partner Scholarship. Without the submission of the verification letter and confirmation of employment, the scholarship cannot be processed.

3. Scholarship Processing

After you are admitted to the graduate degree program, the Verification Letter, including your RUID, should be sent to Rachel Tomlinson, Director of Operations and Administration. After you enrollment is confirmed, Lillian Solis, Business Specialist, Rutgers School of Business–Camden, will process the scholarship on the term bill.

4. Annual Employment Verification

A “Network Discount Employment Verification Letter” from EdAssist must be submitted annually to Lillian Solis to confirm your continued employment and the continued participation of the Corporate Partner in the Scholarship Program.

For employees wishing to enroll/re-enroll at RSBC, the deadline for submitting the Employer Verification Letter is:
Fall Semester: August 13 (PMBA: September 1)
Spring Semester: December 1

Guidelines & Notes

For current graduate students who are enrolled in a RSBC graduate degree or certificate program, the scholarship will commence in the semester following the signing of the Corporate Partner agreement with the students’ employer and will be offered for any future classes in which s/he is enrolled.
Note: The tuition scholarship is effective for enrollment in future terms and will not be applied retroactively.

The student is responsible for submitting the verification letter per the instructions above in order for the scholarship to be processed. The scholarship is not processed automatically.

Students who are admitted into the program will receive a 15% tuition scholarship on their Term Bill, based on the number of courses that the student is taking each semester. The scholarship will not cover fees.

Any additional corporate tuition reimbursement (e.g., employer tuition reimbursement plan) will be the responsibility of the student to procure.

Degree-seeking students (other than those in PMBA program, which is full-time) are strongly encouraged to take two courses per semester in the fall, spring, and summer semesters in order to make adequate progress toward degree completion.

Students cannot “stack” other types of scholarships from RSBC (e.g., if offered more than one type of RSBC scholarship, the student can choose the one provides the greatest scholarship).

To secure financial aid, students must typically be enrolled in two courses per semester. Financial Aid is not available for students completing a non-degree graduate certificate. For more info, contact Rutgers-Camden Financial Aid.

BLDP Shadowing Days Application

After being notified of a match, students are responsible for providing personal information to the matched executive (e.g., current resume and cover letter with information on career ambitions). The information on this application is for internal use only, for us to match you as well as possible with and executive from among our alumni database.

BLDP Application

The Fall 2021 Application is now open! 

Priority will be given to applications received by Friday, April 2, 2021. 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.
