Rutgers University is invested in providing college awareness, enrichment, and academic outreach opportunities to elementary, middle, and high school-aged students through various pre-college programs. Students and families can search REIS’ comprehensive Pre-College Directory to find Rutgers-affiliated programs of interest, and request additional information directly from program staff. Students can also create a free, customizable online MyRutgersFuture portal account to access in-depth information about Rutgers. Through this interactive portal, prospective students are able to connect with pre-college programs, register for on-campus events, learn about majors and career options at the university, enter high school grades to link to their Rutgers application, and receive advising on academic progress via the RUonTarget feature.
REIS also provides pre-college programs at Rutgers with research, benchmarking, evaluation and tracking resources and support. This includes direct consultation on program evaluation and methodology, tool development, and report writing assistance. REIS also supports Enrollment Management, pre-college partners, and Rutgers partners with grant writing and case-making efforts and has helped earn over $3.5 million dollars in grant funding in 2015 and 2016 alone. REIS works closely with Rutgers Future Scholars, a program aimed at increasing the numbers of high school graduates who come from low-income backgrounds who are accepted to and enroll at Rutgers and other universities throughout the country. Those who matriculate at Rutgers earn a tuition-free education. For more information, please visit the Rutgers Future Scholars website.
