Summer Session and Winter Session Courses
Students in good academic standing may register for the Rutgers University Summer Session via WebReg or in person at the Summer Session office. Students may register for Winter Session courses online at the Winter Session registration website or in person at the Winter Session office. Students may take no more than 12 credits during the summer. We strongly recommend no more than 6 credits in any single Summer Session interval. During Rutgers Winter Session, students may take no more than two courses for a maximum 3 credits, unless it is a single course of more credits.
Students wishing to take short-session courses at other institutions must obtain prior approval from departments offering similar courses at Rutgers and from an academic dean. Transfer preapproval forms are available online and from the Office of Academic Services. For full information, please see:
Achieving the full benefit of instruction typically requires some time for reflection about the course content. For this reason, students should always consult an adviser before enrolling in Summer or Winter Session courses. Some academic departments may not apply these credits toward the major or minor.
First-year students are not permitted to register for Winter Session courses.
