Summer and winter sessions at Rutgers’ campuses offer plenty of options for students, whether you’re hoping to fulfill a major requirement or hone your skills at business writing or a foreign language.
Summer & Winter Sessions
Rutgers’ intensive summer and winter terms offer matriculating students the opportunity to fulfill a major requirement and earn credits toward a degree, improve grade point average, or simply learn about a subject of interest.
Non-Rutgers students, including high school students, can also sign up for courses, which run the gamut from business writing and animal science to Chinese calligraphy and Latin American cinema.
The schedule is intense: focused classes are often three to four hours long, meeting four or five days a week. Most winter courses take place over three weeks, while summer courses can run anywhere from two to 12 weeks, with most meeting for six to eight weeks.
The times are accommodating: classes are held Saturday mornings, weekday mornings, afternoons, and evenings, and online. And the caliber of the instruction is the same Rutgers academic excellence found in all our courses.
Campus websites usually post winter offerings in early September and accept registrations in early October. Summer courses are typically posted in mid-January with registration beginning in late February.
