Rider University's pre-college enrichment programs are structured to introduce students to a full college campus experience. From rigorous coursework, access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to on-campus housing and activities, students will explore college life at Rider University. Enrichment programs are non-credit bearing, however regular attendance and completed assignments are expected. Students are evaluated by the same academic standards and procedures as Rider University undergraduates. 


Students opting to take advantage of the for-credit option will be required to submit additional coursework. Upon successful completion of an eligible program, students will receive college credit from Rider University. Students planning to transfer credit(s) to another accredited institution should be aware that acceptance of these credits is at the discretion of the institution. We recommend that you contact the institution to confirm their transfer credit policy.


Freshman applicants who completed any Rider-sponsored pre-college programs prior to applying for admission will automatically qualify for a $2000 Pre-College Completion Award, renewable for up to four years of full-time, continuous undergraduate enrollment, provide you maintain a minimum cumulative Rider grade-point average of 2.5 or better. For more information, contact admissions at [email protected]
