Undergraduate Checklist

Welcome to Rider University!

We are looking forward to seeing you on campus soon! Please follow the steps below to secure your spot in the upcoming class.

1) Pay tuition and housing deposits
To confirm your enrollment you first must pay your USD 200 tuition deposit. Freshman and transfer international students are also required to pay a USD 200 housing deposit as on-campus housing is required. Those payments can be made through your myRider portal. Both deposits are due by May 1.

2) Have your doctor fill out the Student Health Record form
This form is required for all ELI and undergraduate students. Once this form is filled out, email it directly to healthctr@rider.edu. This form must be received no later than December 1 (spring term) or August 1 (fall term).

3) Submit your final transcripts
Our offer of admission is contingent upon satisfactory completion of any academic work in progress before you enroll at Rider. It is your responsibility to ensure that your final official transcripts are forwarded to the Office of Undergraduate Admission by August 1 or as soon as your courses are completed.

4) Request your airport pick up
For a nominal fee Rider University offers airport pick-up during specific days for all international students who will be living on campus. If you would like to schedule your pick up, fill out the Airport Pick-Up Request Form and email it to cie@rider.edu. You will receive an email confirming the receipt of your request.
Airport pick-up can be requested for Newark Liberty Airport (EWR) and John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK). For Fall 2013 start date, the airport pick up dates will be on August 27 and August 28.
