Students who do not want college credit may audit a course. Students opting for audit registration pay the regular tuition and student fee. The student is expected to do all the work of the course except the final exam and is graded S or U (satisfactory or unsatisfactory). The course and grade appear on the student's transcript. Students must inform the Registrar's Office of this selection at the time of registration.
Individuals who are unemployed or in receipt of a layoff notice as a result of a factory or plant closing may be eligible to participate in a job-training course, on a space-available basis, without payment of tuition or general student fees. Other charges, including a mandatory $20 registration fee, may be required. Individuals interested in pursuing this opportunity at Rutgers must submit to the Registrar an approved Unemployed Person Job Training Form and Employability Development Plan from a state One-Stop Career Center no later than five (5) business days prior to the start of the session or semester. For more details, please contact the Registrar's Office.

Summer Session courses are open to academically qualified students. Rutgers is accredited by the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges, and its summer courses are drawn from regular undergraduate and graduate offerings. Summer Session credits are regularly transferred to many other colleges, however, most colleges require prior approval of transfer credits. Therefore, you should check the transferability of each course with the appropriate official from your college before you register. Please do not send approval forms to Rutgers. Rutgers cannot guarantee the amount or kind of credit which will be granted by another institution for any course taken at Rutgers. Students are responsible for requesting a transcript to be sent to their home institution. Transcripts may be requested from the Registrar's Office.
