Course Requirements and Prerequisites
Students are expected to meet all course requirements and prerequisites as noted in this publication. Full information on Rider University’s academic policies, procedures and programs may be found in the Undergraduate, Graduate or Westminster College of the Arts Academic Catalogs, available online.
Recommended J-Term Undergraduate Course Load
Students may take up to 3 credits (one course) in J-Term. Since these courses are intense we recommend that you consult with your academic advisor or your Dean's office before registering for more than one course.
Current Rider students MUST print their J-Term schedule by accessing their course information on line at MyRider. Schedules will not be mailed. Newly enrolled students will receive a bill and a J-Term schedule prior to the beginning of the term.
All students enrolled in J-Term may drop and/or withdraw through the Registrar's Office following the J-Term drop and withdrawal dates listed below. All drops or withdrawals (student discretion only) must be initiated by the student.
|Drop Course||Monday, January 3 - Tuesday, January 4|
|Wednesday, January 5 - Tuesday, January 11|
|Wednesday, January 12 - Friday, January 14|
|Tuesday, January 18|
Students are held responsible to officially drop or withdraw from a course. Students will not be automatically dropped or withdrawn if they stop attending class(es). Failure to officially drop or withdraw from a course by deadlines outlined in the J-Term Calendar will result in a grade of “F.” Students who do not attend any class meetings and do not officially drop will receive a grade of “N” and will be held responsible for the full cost of the course tuition.
