Rutgers University Students
Most continuing Rutgers University students may register online by using WEBREG or in person beginning February 16. Please refer to the Summer Session Registration Calendar, for registration dates and deadlines.

Non-RU Students (Visiting Students)
Non-RU students do not need to go through the Office of Admissions in order to attend Summer Session.  Beginning February 16, visiting students can submit the Registration Inquiry Form available here, https://csstudent.rutgers.edu/ to begin the process that will grant a visiting student access to RU registration services.  You will receive registration instructions after submitting the inquiry form.  Transcripts or letters of approval are not required.  All visiting students should consult with their home institution prior to registration to confirm that the credits are transferable.  Enrolling in Summer Session courses does not guarantee that you may take Fall or Spring semester courses as a non-matriculated student, nor does enrollment in Summer Session constitute admission to Rutgers University.  To apply for a degree program at Rutgers, please contact the Office of Admission, 973/353-5205.

Non-RU Students Who Attended Summer Session 2014
Non-RU students who attended Summer Session 2014 may register via Web Registration (WEBREG), beginning February 16, by entering their RUID or Social Security number and Personal Access Code (PAC) to log-in.

After registering, students should make any necessary changes to their home address or phone number for billing and grade reporting at, http://registrar.newark.rutgers.edu/.

Graduate Courses
Non-RU students registering for graduate courses must obtain the approval of the graduate director of the department offering the course before registration.

Admitted Freshmen & Transfer Students
Students who have been admitted to Rutgers University-Newark for the Fall 2015 semester should not register for Math or English courses until they have taken the placement exam, and must limit themselves to introductory level courses (100- or 200-level). Transfer students should consult with their academic department or the Office of Student Affairs.

Students Seeking Readmission
Please consult the college catalog you are reapplying to for detailed information.

Unemployed Workers Tuition Waiver
A checklist is available here with step by step information on the Rutgers University-Newark certification and registration process.

Official Audit (Non-RU Students Only)
A Non-RU student may audit a course by entering an “N” in the “Credit Hour Prefix” column on the registration form.  The student is expected to complete all the course work, except the final exam, and will be graded “S” or “U.”  The course and grade appear on the student’s transcript.  Students opting for audit registration must choose this option prior to the beginning of the course and may not change audit status once the course has begun.  This option is available to Non-RU students only, and those students are still required to pay the regular tuition and student fees.

Pass/No Credit ( Rutgers University Student Only)
A grade of Pass (equivalent to grades of A, B+, B, C+, and C) or No Credit (equivalent to grades of D and F) is assigned to a student who has registered for his or her course on that basis.  This option is open only to juniors and seniors in good academic standing.  No more than one course may be taken on a Pass/No Credit basis during the Summer Session, and credit is not allowed for more than four courses.  This option may be used for electives only; it may not be used for courses required in the major or for courses used to satisfy the general curriculum requirements.  Non-RU students are not permitted to take courses on a P/NC (Pass/No Credit) basis.  Only Rutgers University students may take courses on a P/NC basis, when such registration is in accord with the regulations of the student’s college and the faculty offering the course. Request for P/NC grading must be made at the time of registration by inserting the symbol P or NC in the “credit hour prefix” column on the registration form. This option may not be made or changed after registration is completed.

Closed Courses & Special Permission Numbers

There are instances when registration in certain closed courses may be allowed.  Please contact the academic department offering the course to determine option availability.  If approval is granted by the academic department, a six-digit Special Permission Number will be issued to the student by that department.  The Special Permission Number must be entered when prompted by WEBREG or provided to the Office of the Registrar if registering in person.

Registering for a Course With a Prefix
If registering for a course where a prefix may be needed, you must do so in person at the Office of the Registrar.  See samples below.

Change of Registration

The change of registration period (drop/add) is used to make changes within that session only and must be done in person.  Please refer to the Summer Session Registration Calendar for specific dates.

Withdrawing from a Course/Dropping a Course/Refund
Students must officially withdraw from a course prior to the dates specified in the Summer Session Registration Calendar in order to obtain a full refund. Do not anticipate that the university will automatically drop you from a class due to non-payment or non-attendance. You must withdraw from your classes via WEBREG or by submitting a Change of Course Form to the Office of the Registrar by the dates specified on the Summer Session Registration Calendar. All withdrawals must be done in-person once the session you have registered for begins. It is the student’s responsibility to verify that their financial account and registration schedule have been successfully updated after withdrawing. Please consult the Summer Session Registration Calendar for partial refund and no refund withdrawal dates. Telephone withdrawals will not be accepted.
