Before the start of the fall and spring semesters, registration instructions are posted on the registrar's website (http://registrar.rutgers.edu/NW/NWINDEX.HTM). Most registration is done via the web registration system during special announced dates.
After the deadline dates, initial registration must be done in person at the Office of the Registrar through the eighth calendar day of the semester. Students who have registered can make necessary adjustments to their schedules via the web registration system through the eighth calendar day of the class. Confirmation of registration can be secured from the web registration system or a copy can be requested at the Office of the Registrar. Course offerings for the semester can be found on the scheduling website (http://scheduling.rutgers.edu). Advisement varies according to the needs of the particular graduate program.
A student admitted into a degree program of the Graduate School-Newark is expected to maintain continuous registration in every fall and spring semester thereafter until completing the program and earning the degree. Normally a student registers for courses or research, but, if necessary, may register for matriculation continued (leave of absence).
A student who fails to maintain continuous registration may not resume formal graduate study or register again in the Graduate School-Newark without first applying through the Office of the Dean for readmission.
