A part-time student is enrolled for fewer than 12 course credits in one semester.
Applicants for part-time study complete the same application as applicants for full-time study.
To be admitted as a part-time student, applicants must meet the same admissions requirements as full-time applicants.
Another great opportunity for non-matriculating students as well as current students are RU-N's Winter and Summer Sessions. Find more info about them below.
With an accelerated meeting schedule, the Winter Session offers students the opportunity to take advantage of smaller class sizes, a convenient location, and flexible course schedules. Attending a winter course offers students the ideal opportunity to accelerate time to graduation, improve their GPA, explore a subject of interest, or reduce next semester’s course work. The winter allows students to focus on a single subject matter, empowering students to master the material, a feat impossible during the academic year.
Summer courses are open to all members of the community. Current Rutgers students may register via WebReg. Visiting students from another institution, past Rutgers students, or adults interested in personal enrichment, professional development, or degree completion opportunities can submit a Visiting Student Registration Form to create a student record and receive registration instructions. Academically qualified pre-college students can submit a Summer Edge High School Student Application.
