Academic Advising During COVID-19

The SAS Office of Advising and Academic Services knows this is a very confusing time for Rutgers students. Don't worry - your advisors are still here to help you achieve academic success. SAS students are able to meet with advisors remotely – over the phone, or on a computer/phone as either a voice or video call. Students are also welcome to email advisors with questions.

We are ready to support you. New information continues to be released and we will do our best to answer any questions you have as we learn more. We ask for your patience and flexibility as we all learn new ways to connect and communicate.

Please bookmark this page for reference and check back often for updates.

As you learned from President Holloway and Chancellor Molloy, the University will be converting the course schedule to remote instruction between now and August 1st – including lab classes.

During that time, you will be receiving email alerts through the myRutgers portal, as each of your courses is adjusted to indicate whether you will be expected to attend remotely following the regular class schedule for live class meetings, or if the courses will be "by arrangement." “By arrangement” courses will have a regular schedule of work and assignments due throughout each week, but they will not require you to be online at a particular time.  Both types of courses will feature a high level of engagement.

YOU DON’T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THESE NOTICES – YOUR REGISTRATION IS NOT BEING CHANGED!  The notices are just messages from WebReg letting you know that the course is being converted to one of the remote learning formats.

If you DO want to make changes to your Fall 2020 registration, we strongly encourage you to wait until August 1st to adjust your schedule, when all of the remote conversions for the over 14,000 course sections will be completed and visible in the Schedule of Classes and Course Schedule Planner.  Advisors will be here to assist you, if you have any questions.

Good luck as you prepare for the upcoming semester, and we look forward to when we can welcome you back to the banks of the Raritan in person.

Connect with an academic advisor through Live Chat 9am-5pm

A green checkmark means an advisor is available; a red X means that there currently isn't a live chat session to join.




Stay safe, and we wish you a wonderful summer!
