Rider University is pleased to announce the launch of its new mobile app, an updated and more comprehensive version of the mobile app currently available. The University app can now be downloaded for free from the iTunes or Google Play store.
Tara Laposa, director of Internet Projects, said, “The new app allows Rider to deliver information that will enhance the experience by offering relevant and timely information to Rider’s students and faculty.” According to Laposa, some of the new app highlights for students include access to course schedules, grades, class rosters (that allows students to connect with classmates) and holds on student accounts. In turn, faculty can access their course schedule and class rosters. “One of the most beneficial features of this app is student access to grades,” Laposa said. “Students can check midterm and final grades for current and past courses, simply through the app on their phone.”
The new app also includes quick access to a student and faculty directory, campus information, such as campus alerts and important numbers and links to visit Rider’s mobile-friendly and social media sites.
Laposa said iOS 6.0+ and Android 4.0.3 and above devices are supported on the new app. Blackberry and Windows phones are not compatible. To find the app, search for Rider University in the iTunes or Google Play store.
“Once the app is launched, click on the “sign in” link at the bottom or by using the app menu and enter your EasyPass/myRider credentials,” she explained. Courses, grades, notifications and directory content are available to users by signing in with your EasyPass/myRider credentials. All other content is accessible without the need to sign in.
It is important to note that the current Rider mobile app will no longer be supported after June 30 2014 and it is recommended that all users delete the current app from their phone.
“We encourage all users to download the newly released app in order to take full advantage of the new features and enhanced content offerings,” Laposa said.
