Students in Transition Seminar (STS) and Passport

The Students in Transition Seminar (STS) is a one-credit course that serves as a personal GPS system in order to navigate the University, the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS), and the services that SAS provides.

Course Objectives:

  • Help transfer students to make a smooth transition to Rutgers
  • Provide the information and self-assessment skills necessary to facilitate successful academic performance and to address developmental needs during the first term
  • Begin the development of necessary information technology skills and provide an introduction to the computer resources available at Rutgers
  • Provide students with information about the services available at the College that will ensure academic success
  • Promote the student's successful connection with the institution academically and socially

Every transfer student will be registered in a section of STS during their first semester.

Passport Events

Passport events are listed with dates, times, and locations in the passport each semester.
