Students are encouraged to contact the Office of Financial Aid at 609-896-5360 prior to JTerm registration in order to explore financial aid options. A financial aid counselor will review your application to determine available resources and options to cover JTerm expenses.
If financial aid is not in place at the start of the JTerm, students will be expected to pay their JTerm charges in full.
Students may subscribe to the deferred payment plan (.pdf) that provides for two equal payments for the JTerm. A $25 deferred payment plan fee is required for the plan.
Students who are eligible for company or other third-party tuition reimbursement may qualify for our Corporate or Third-Party Sponsorship agreement. There is a $25 fee for the plan. Upon signing the agreement, tuition payment is deferred until the end of the JTerm. More information about this plan and requisite documentation is available in the Corporate Deferment form (.pdf).
Financial Responsibility and Account Holds
Students are responsible to pay full tuition and fees unless they officially drop prior to the start of classes or within the refund period. Please contact the Bursar’s Office at 609-896-5020 regarding your account information.
Not attending, dropping and/or withdrawing from a course
Students are held responsible to officially drop or withdraw from a course. Students will not be automatically dropped or withdrawn if they stop attending class(es). Failure to officially drop or withdraw from a course by deadlines outlined in the JTerm Calendar will result in a grade of “F.” Students who do not attend any class meetings and do not officially drop will receive a grade of “N” and will be held responsible for the full cost of the course tuition.
Full-time Rider students must complete drop and/or withdrawal forms at the Registrar’s Office in Fine Arts, Room 117. All other students must drop and/or withdraw in the College of Continuing Studies office. All drops or withdrawals (student discretion only) must be done in person or in writing and faxed to the College of Continuing Studies at 609-896-5261.
