Alternate Admissions Paths

Alternate Admissions Paths

Rowan University recognizes the value and contributions that non-traditional students contribute to the University community. Our Alternate Path Programs are driven to invite students to become Rowan Profs, based on their unique set of talents, skills or circumstances – even if these students do not meet traditional admissions criteria. Each program has a defined set of requirements for acceptance, as outlined below.

Should you have questions, our counselors are available Monday through Friday by calling (877) RU-ROWAN (877-787-6926) or emailing
