UPDATE: Based on ongoing state and federal recommendations to reduce the spread of coronavirus, this summer Rider University is providing remote and alternative instruction and is committed to providing the same quality programming in an exciting new format.

For programs continuing virtually, all class instruction with Rider faculty, masterclass sessions, and materials will be provided. However, due to the on-campus resources, equipment, and/or minimum software requirements, we are unable to offer select courses remotely. View our complete list of virtual offerings and cancelled programs. We very much hope to see you next year.
