Like the rest of the faculty and staff at Rutgers, the Deans and Advisors in the SAS Office of Advising and Academic Services are sorry we won't be able to welcome you back to campus in person this Fall. But your health and safety are our paramount concern, as, together, we navigate through this global pandemic. We want to assure you, however, that we remain available virtually to assist you with all of your academic planning questions.
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.
