RU-FIT (First-year International student Transition course) is a one-credit course taught by Peer Leaders—Rutgers Juniors and Seniors (often international students themselves)—designed to aid international students in a successful transition to Rutgers University. This course, mandatory for first-year international students enrolled in SAS, SOE, RBS, and SEBS, aims to help students develop a foundation for a well-rounded college experience by connecting them to Rutgers resources, promoting engagement within and outside the classroom, and communicating university expectations. Peer Leaders are trained by faculty and staff advisors and, as mentors, become an important resource for international students during their time at Rutgers.
