Free Electives

12 semester hours*

The minimum requirements in business and nonbusiness subjects normally leave a student with an additional 12* semester hours that must be completed to satisfy the 120 required for graduation.

Free elective hours may be taken in any department at Rider, provided the student meets the requirements imposed by the department offering the course. Courses from a second major may be used to fill the free elective hours.

*Note: Accounting and Global Supply Chair Management majors are required to have 9.
