Intra-Institutional Registration

Graduate Courses

Students in the Graduate School-Newark may take courses offered by another graduate division of the university. First, they must consult with their graduate program director. Then they enter the necessary registration transaction through the Rutgers Touchtone Registration System, on the web, or in person at the registrar's office. Once the graduate program director authorizes the intra-institutional graduate course, no additional permission is required by the Graduate School-Newark.

Undergraduate Courses

With the approval of their program director, graduate students may enroll in advanced 300- and 400-level undergraduate courses. This move may be taken as part of the regular graduate program or to remedy a deficiency in the preparation for graduate work.

Courses numbered 500 or above are designed for graduate students and normally carry credit toward a graduate degree. When a student is either permitted or required to take a course numbered below 500, a credit prefix must be entered in person at the registrar's office. The credit prefix appears on the permanent record as follows:

E.  The undergraduate course is excluded from credit in the graduate program.

G.  The undergraduate course has been approved for graduate credit.

No more than 12 credits numbered below 500 may be used to fulfill requirements for an advanced degree. The only exception to this rule is the M.A.T. program.
