HOW TO REGISTER FOR COURSES
Select from below the group that best matches you:
CURRENT RUTGERS-CAMDEN STUDENTS
Continuing students from Rutgers-Camden should use the WebReg system http://webreg.rutgers.edu beginning on February 18, 2013 for Summer Session registration. Instructions for Webreg may be found on that page. Please note that students may register for only one course (and associated lab if relevant) in each four-week session.
CURRENT RUTGERS UNIVERSITY STUDENTS NOT FROM CAMDEN
Continuing students from Rutgers University may use the Webreg system http://webreg.rutgers.edu beginning on February 18, 2013 for Summer Session registration. Instructions for WebReg may be found on that page. However, course numbers from New Brunswick or Newark colleges may not be properly recognized by Webreg as prerequisites for Camden courses. In that event, students may need to do a Pre-Requisite Override on the Camden Campus. Please also note that courses from Camden, while they will figure into the credits toward graduation and into the student's GPA, will not necessarily fulfill a specific requirement at another school of Rutgers. It is recommended that students verify with their program directors whether any given course taken at another college within Rutgers will apply toward their particular program.
FORMER RUTGERS STUDENTS
A student who previously attended Rutgers during the regular year, but did not attend in Spring of 2013, may still be approved for courses in the Summer Session ONLY. Re-admission for the Fall or Spring requires a separate re-enrollment process through the student's regular Academic Dean's Office. Registration begins on February 18, 2013. Students may use the Visting Students Online Registration to register or the hard copy Summer Session Registration Form. Please note that student will need to know their RUID to register. If you do not remember your RUID, you can look it up on the Rutgers ID Query page.
Non-Rutgers students may use the Visting Students Online Registration to register or the hard copy Summer Session Registration Form. The student should confirm with his or her college that the selected courses/credits are transferable to his/her home institution. Rutgers cannot be responsible for the amount or kind of credit granted by other institutions for courses taken at Rutgers. Rutgers courses are accredited and generally are accepted by other institutions, but individual courses may or may not meet the specific requirements of the student's program in their home institution. Course catalog descriptions are listed with the courses. For any additional information, including the syllabus, the student should contact the instructor directly.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
In some cases, high-achieving high school junior or senior students may register for Summer Session courses. Enclose with the Registration Form a letter of recommendation from the student's guidance counselor (or other school official), a copy of the student's High School transcript, and a personal statement of purpose indicating the student's preparedness for college level work and interest in attending Summer Session. All of this documentation should be sent to the Summer Session Office, Armitage Hall First Floor, 311 North Fifth St, Camden, NJ 08102. Please contact the Summer Session Office for more information or any questions.
Eligible unemployed individuals who have obtained Workforce papers from the county Office of Unemployment and that are interested in taking courses in the Summer Session are required to meet with the Registrar prior to registering for classes. Please contact the Registrar's Office at 856-225-6053 for more details.

HOW TO ADD A COURSE
Students may add a course to their schedule by using the Webreg system http://webreg.rutgers.edu. Instructions for the Webreg system may be found on that site. Please note that students are normally only permitted to take a single course (and its associated lab if it has one) in each of the three summer session terms. Taking more than one course each session is considered an overload, and requires special permission (such as it would in the regular academic term). See Course Load below for more information, or contact the Summer Session Office.
Please note that the bill for all courses the student is currently registered for is due at the earliest due date. For example, if a student is registered for a three credit first session course and a three credit second session course, the bill for six credits is due at the due date for the first session. To stagger your payments, you will need to stagger your registrations, making sure to pay for one course before attempting to register for the next.
Courses added during the Late Add period are assessed a $50 late change fee.

HOW TO DROP A COURSE
Students may drop a course from their schedule using the Webreg system http://webreg.rutgers.edu. Instructions for the Webreg system may be found on that site. NOT PAYING FOR A CLASS DOES NOT DROP THE COURSE! Withdrawing from a course must be actively done otherwise you will be responsible for payment. Please pay careful attention to the deadlines regarding refunds and academic penalty on the Summer Session Calendar. Any refund due for a dropped course will be processed by the Student Accounting Office in seven to ten business days in the form of a check, which will be held at the Student Accounting Office until the student contacts them with instructions. The Student Accounting Office may be contacted at 856-225-6021 for more information regarding refunds.
Courses dropped by the "Last Day to Drop with 100% Refund" deadline will not appear on the student's transcript and will receive a full refund of tuition. Courses dropped after the "Last Day to Drop with 100% Refund" deadline will appear as a "W" on the student's transcript, and will be refunded according to the Summer Session Calendar.

HOW TO CHANGE A COURSE
Students may change their Summer Session registration from one course to another (or one section of a course to another) using the Webreg system http://webreg.rutgers.edu. Instructions for the Webreg system may be found on that site. Student should, in general, DROP first and then ADD, to avoid problems with reaching Course Load maximums. The normal rules for Dropping and Adding detailed above apply. Please note - if you drop a section of a course and receive a "W" for that section, you will not be able to use Webreg to add another section of the same course in the summer. Contact the Summer Session Office for assistance in resolving that situation.

SUMMER COURSE LOAD
Because of the intense nature of Summer Session courses, students may carry no more than 4 credits in a 4-week session without special permission. Requirements for taking an overload:
SUMMER ENROLLMENT STATUS (credits over the entire summer):
- 3.0 minimum GPA, 3.5 preferred;
- meeting times of the classes must not overlap;
- permission of Dean;
- total overload credits may not exceed six credits at any time in any overlappping combination. Overloads with 4-cr. foreign language courses or laboratory sciences are not permitted;
- it is generally recommended that students overload only with courses they are already academically strong in. Doing overloads to raise GPA, or with repeat-option courses is strongly discouraged.
- 6.0 credits or more: Full Time
- 3.0-5.9 credits: Half Time (Part Time)
- Less than 3.0 credits: Less Half Time (Part Time)

COURSE REGISTRATION OPTIONS
AUDITING A COURSE
Upon obtaining permission of the instructor of a course and subject to availability of space, full-time students may audit a course. No academic credit is earned in this manner, and audited courses do not appear on the studentís transcript. Senior citizens (those over 65 years) are also eligible to audit courses. Students should submit a hard copy registration form to the Summer Session Office to indicate their intention to take a course under the Audit Option.
PASS/NO CREDIT OPTION
Rutgers students and alumni who have completed at least 63 credits may be permitted to register for a maximum of one course in the summer, outside the general curricular and major/minor requirements, for credit on a Pass/No Credit basis. Permission must be obtained from the instructor and the Summer Session Director. The course is graded Pass (equivalent to an A, B, or C) or No Credit (equivalent to a D or F). The course grants degree credits toward graduation if the student passes, but does not affect the cumulative grade-point average whether the student passes or fails. The course must be designated as Pass/No Credit at the time of registration by entering a P in the course prefix area on the registration form, and this cannot be changed once the course has started. The course incurs all costs and fees as usual, and the student is expected to attend all classes and do all assigned work, including the final exam.
Certain courses within the Rutgers system do not carry college credit, but count toward the number of credits taken for attendance and billing purposes. Mostly these include college preparatory courses such as Basic Writing (50:350:099) or Elementary Algebra (50:640:041). They are indicated in the course listings by an "N" preceding the number of credits (Cr.N3), and by a note within the course text. Rutgers students registering for these courses should indicate an "N" in the Course Prefix field when filling out the the registration forms. Occasionally a special permission number is required to drop these sections - contact the Summer Session Office for more information.
Rutgers students within their first two semesters as incoming Freshman or for their first semester as a transfer student may elect to take a course under the Repeat Option. The Repeat Option is used when a student received a grade of D or less in a course. The student may elect to retake the course the next semester in which it is offered, paying for and attendnig the course normally. Upon completion, only the better of the two grades will be figured into the student's GPA, though both courses will appear on the transcript, and the student will only receive degree credit for the course once. Not all courses are eligible for the repeat option - see you academic advisor for more information regarding this option. When registering for a course under this option, enter an "R" in the Course Prefix field.

WHAT'S MY RUID?
Please note that as of February 2006 the Registrar's Office moved away from using SS Numbers as the Student ID, and will be assigning all existing students a new Rutgers University ID number which will be used for all student transactions from that point onward. To find out what your RUID number is, and for more information about the new ID numbers, see https://identityservices.rutgers.edu/ruidquery/query.html. Non-Rutgers students are required to provide the Social Security number during the initial registration process for tracking purposes, but will use the assigned RU ID number for all transactions thereafter.
