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 encouraged, but not required, to live on campus. Students who wish to live on campus are required to submit a USD 200 non-refundable housing deposit.  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 healthcenter@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
If you are arriving at Newark or JFK airports and living on campus, you can send us your request for airport pick up by completing the Airport Pick-Up Request Form. There is USD 65 for this service. After completing the form you will receive an email confirmation with important information. If you do not receive an email within 24 hours, please contact us at cie@rider.edu.  We can only guarantee your airport pick up if you submit the Airport Pick Up form.

If you decide not to request airport pick up or arrive before August 26 or 27, you will have to make your own travel arrangements to get to the campus.

5) Join the conversation
If you are a Lawrenceville student join our Facebook group to meet new students, make friends and ask questions about Rider!
If you are a Westminster Choir College student contact admissions@rider.edu and we’ll send you an invitation to join the group.
