Advanced Placement into MS Program

Articulation of BS degree in Bioinformatics with
MS degree in Biomedical Informatics at Rutgers University (previously UMDNJ), SHRP

This articulated program allows selected Ramapo College of New Jersey (RCNJ) BS Bioinformatics students to complete MS degree in Biomedical Informatics at Rutgers University (previously UMDNJ), SHRP (School of Health Related Professions) at an accelerated pace. This process will significantly reduce the normal time required to complete an MS degree in Biomedical Informatics at Rutgers, SHRP.

Qualified students enrolled in the Bioinformatics major at Ramapo College can take graduate courses (up to nine credits) in Biomedical Informatics at Rutgers, SHRP (1 ,2), which could be used towards the required electives for the BS in Bioinformatics degree at Ramapo College. These Biomedical Informatics courses can also be used towards the course requirements for the MS degree in Biomedical Informatics at Rutgers, SHRP upon successful admission into that program (3). In addition, selected Ramapo College Bioinformatics curriculum courses (4) (equivalent to up to 6 Rutgers, SHRP credits) can be used towards the course requirements for the MS degree in Biomedical Informatics at Rutgers, SHRP.

This articulation will allow the participating students to be placed into the MS program at Rutgers, SHRP in Biomedical Informatics with an advanced standing (5). Refer to the lists of courses at Rutgers, SHRP and RCNJ that double count and the Convener of Bioinformatics for more details of this articulation program.

    Credit Calculations:
  • Maximum possible credits that double count: 15
  • Total graduate credits needed for the MS in Biomedical Informatics program: 30 credits of courses plus 6 credits of thesis/project. Total = 36 credits.

  1. Ramapo College B.S. in Bioinformatics students would need to complete the pre-requisites for Rutgers, SHRP courses at Ramapo College. Refer to the Convener of Bioinformatics for the latest list of courses that double count and their pre-requisites.
  2. Before matriculating into the MS program at Rutgers, SHRP, the RCNJ-TAS student taking the Rutgers, SHRP Biomedical Informatics courses will be treated as a non-matriculated student at Rutgers, SHRP. In order to become a matriculated student in the Biomedical Informatics MS program at Rutgers, SHRP, the RCNJ-TAS students must complete requirements for the admission to the MS program (including BS degree, GRE, three letters of recommendation).
  3. Admission of these students into the M.S. in Biomedical Informatics program at Rutgers, SHRP requires successful completion of baccalaureate degree at RCNJ.
  4. Minimum grade of B required
  5. Requires the recommendation of the RCNJ Bioinformatics Convener and GPA (3.0 and above for the major).
