Tuition & Financial Aid

Tuition at Rutgers-Camden is $1,986 per course for New Jersey residents, $3,240 per course for out-of-state students. Full-time study is considered three classes per semester but many MFA students take less.

Some partial tuition scholarships are available to outstanding applicants. A limited number of graduate teaching fellowships will be awarded to MFA students. The candidate must be admitted to the Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program at the Graduate School of Rutgers University in Camden.

Compensation and duties attached to the appointment are governed by a contract negotiated between the Rutgers University and the American Association of University Professors. They usually include the teaching of two sections of undergraduate composition per term in return for a salary of $25,969 per year, plus tuition remission and full medical benefits. Teaching Assistants normally carry a two-course load of study per semester.
