The minimum requirements in business and non-business subjects normally leave a student with an additional 27* 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. Free elective hours can be used to fulfill the International Business Elective requirements. Courses from a second major or a minor may also be used to fill the free elective hours.
*Note: Accounting, Advertising, Information Systems and Global Supply Chain Management majors have a reduced number of free elective hours due to the additional major requirements.
