      The Public Administration Student Association (PASA) was founded jointly by a group of MPA students and faculty in 1985, to represent MPA students’ interests in the Department for Public Policy and Administration.

      Since its inception, PASA has been actively involved with the department’s affairs, lobbying MPA students’ interests, and contributing to their personal and professional development. As one of the few graduate student organization at Rutgers University-Camden campus, PASA aims to serve as a resource to University student organizations as well as Camden community agencies by providing support with research, capacity building, policy analysis and evaluation, institutional development, etc. In September of each year PASA conducts elections of its new leadership.

  • Graduate School Forms
    Students can follow this link to the Rutgers-Camden Graduate School forms for the following:

    Re-enrollment Form:
    Students are expected to be registered continuously in the Graduate School (through coursework or matriculation-continued). If you have taken any semesters off (not including the summer semester), you must apply for re-enrollment. This form requires approval of your graduate director and the Associate Dean of the Graduate School.

    Transfer Credit:
    Graduate courses completed at other institutions may be accepted for credit at the university. Transfer credits refer to credits earned at another institution (including another graduate school within the Rutgers system) before the student enrolls at Rutgers-Camden. Please note that transfer and transient credits combined may not exceed one-third of the degree credits in the Graduate School-Camden. Transfer credit applications will not be considered until a student has completed at least 12 credits in their program. This form requires approval of your graduate director and the Associate Dean of the Graduate School.

    Transient Credit:
    Graduate students at Rutgers University-Camden are expected to take all their coursework at the Graduate School at Rutgers-Camden, unless they receive special permission in advance. Graduate courses completed at other institutions (including another graduate school within the Rutgers system) while enrolled as a graduate student at Rutgers-Camden may be accepted for credit. Transient credit has to be approved prior to the student enrolling in a course at another institution/school and should be granted only in exceptional circumstances. Transient credit will not be granted retroactively. Please note that the number of transient credits and transfer credits combined cannot exceed one-third of the total credits for graduation. This form requires approval of your graduate director and the Associate Dean of the Graduate School.
