University’s participation in Some College, No Degree program will provide additional resources for non-traditional students
by Rachel Stengel '14, '20
Rider University is proud to participate in the State of New Jersey’s Some College, No Degree program, which aims to help adult New Jersey residents complete their bachelor’s degrees.
Through the program, the University received a grant which will help qualified students with expenses that may stand in the way of them completing their degrees, such as childcare, transportation, technology and textbooks. The National Student Clearinghouse estimates that more than 790,000 New Jersey residents have earned some college credit, but left school before earning a degree.
“Rider’s Continuing Education Program has always been dedicated to assisting adult students in the pursuit of their undergraduate degrees,” says Sean Levin, director of graduate, continuing education admission, and university partnerships. “We're proud that this new grant will allow us to support adult students in removing barriers and assist in their dream of completing their bachelor's degree.”
Rider offers more than 70 undergraduate programs at a low, per-credit rate for continuing education students. Through online, evening and accelerated courses and part-time options, students can complete their degrees with flexibility.
