Balancing life's challenges while pursuing your degree?

Rider’s year-round classes for adult learners make attending college easy without sacrificing your work schedule or family time. Classes are available early morning, day, evening and online in once, twice or three times per week meeting schedules. Non-traditional students benefit especially from these convenient course formats.

As a College of Continuing Studies' student, you may enroll in any course Rider offers, however, evening and online classes are designed especially for the non-traditional student.


Types of Alternate Format Courses:

Online Courses
Online courses and online degree completion programs provide students with the ability to complete coursework anytime, anywhere! 


Alternate Week Evening Courses*
Courses meet for 3 hours once a week every other week during the semester. (e.g. every other Monday evening).

*Important: Since the alternate format courses meet every other week, students should plan to attend every class session (in fact, a faculty member may make attendance mandatory). If there is an emergency situation that causes you to be absent during the semester, you should notify your faculty immediately or as soon as possible using your Rider e-mail address.

Accelerated InterSession Courses
Two Summer Sessions are offered in 3-week and 6-week sessions which meet for 3 hours either 4 or 2 times a week respectively.  

JTerm classes are 3 weeks in length, either in the classroom or online, and provide a great opportunity to complete extra classes during the intersession in January.

Make-Up and Review Session: The make-up/review session is used at faculty discretion.
