Application Process

Thank you very much for your interest in Rutgers CSP!

The CSP requires an official ASD diagnosis from all applicants across the spectrum, including Asperger's Syndrome. While no longer officially recognized as a DSM diagnosis, we realize that many current CSP applicants did receive this diagnosis in childhood. 

The CSP is currently accepting applications for the Spring 2022 semester. Click here to access our  CSP Spring 2022 Application.

The CSP application and admissions processes are separate from Rutgers University's undergraduate admissions process; automatic registration is not a guarantee. Confirmed admittance to Rutgers University is required prior to proceeding with the next steps in the CSP process.  To access Rutgers University's application portal, please visit: 

Applicants are asked to advise the CSP immediately upon receipt of RU-Undergraduate Admissions' decision notification. Failure to do so may result in delays in the CSP application/admissions process.

Please Note: Responses/Communication from the CSP Team will come from the email address  


In order for CSP Coordinators to make an informed admittance decision, the CSP requires:

  • A College Support Program (CSP) online application
  • CSP Student and Family Supplemental Documentation
  • An in-person family interview (virtual, during the COVID-19 pandemic)  
  • Written (digital) consent for CSP to contact references provided
  • A possible assessment with the RCAAS-Psychological Services Clinic (PSC)

The CSP fee of $7000 per academic year, payable in two-semester increments, is in addition to Rutgers University tuition costs and student fees.
