Many registration resources that are referenced in this section can be found on the Rutgers Business School-Newark and New Brunswick (RBS) website and at https://registrar.newark.rutgers.edu.
Formal admission to RBS and payment, or arrangement with the cashier regarding payment, of tuition and fees are a part of the registration process. Students who have not properly registered cannot attend class.
All students who complete registration on time receive registration information for the following semester. Those who take part in registration receive semester bills for the following semester. All students, regardless of method of payment, must make contact with the cashier each semester or their registration will be canceled.
Students who do not receive registration information by May 15 for the fall semester and by November 15 for the spring semester should contact the program director/program coordinator. Newly admitted students receive complete registration instructions at the time of their admission. It is the responsibility of the student to remain in communication with the graduate program director of the program for which he or she is matriculated.
A student admitted into an RBS degree program is expected to remain registered in every fall and spring semester thereafter until completing the program and earning the degree. Normally a student registers for courses and, if necessary, may register for matriculation continued (leave of absence). Any student who fails to maintain continuous registration (nonenrolled for three consecutive semesters) may not resume formal graduate study or register again in RBS without first applying for readmission through the program director/program coordinator.
Registration for Continuing Students
Information for use of the online registration system is made available at the website https://registrar.newark.rutgers.edu approximately two months before the start of each trimester.
Registration for New Students
New student registration takes place in person at orientation and via an online appointment for those matriculating in an online program. Information about orientation will be sent by the program staff. If not received, students are responsible for obtaining this information.
The requirement that RBS students remain in continuous registration from the time they are admitted until their degrees are earned applies only to the regular academic year (spring and fall semesters), not Summer Session. Summer Session instructions are sent to each student in the late winter.
Full-Time and Part-Time StudentsMaximum Credit Restrictions
For most purposes, a full-time student is defined as one who is registered for 12 or more credits. Anyone who registers for 11 or fewer credits is a part-time student. All courses, including courses of research and regular courses taken as "not for credit" (E and N prefixes), are counted in measuring the student's recordable program of work. These regulations govern tuition charges, student fees, statistical records, residency requirements, and other issues affected by definitions of full-time and part-time status.
Part-time students may register for up to 11 credits and are encouraged to register for at least 6 credits per trimester. Full-time students may register for 12 to 16 credits per trimester. Maximum credit hour restrictions include E-level courses (noncredit courses).
Term bill payments are accepted in the form of electronic check, credit
card (online only), cash, money order, or paper check. Payments can be
made online, through the mail, or in person at a campus Cashiers' Office. Payments are not accepted via phone or fax. On-time payment of trimester bills prevents the cancellation of registration and the assessment of a late payment fee: https://studentabc.rutgers.edu/tuition-overview.
Transfer of Credit

By law, the university requires that all persons born after 1956 have immunization against certain diseases prior to enrollment. Every student should have received an immunization form; if not, be sure to bring with you proof (signed by a doctor) that you have received two doses against measles, mumps, and rubella. Exemptions can be made only for medical or religious reasons, upon written request. For more information, call 732-932-8429 or 973-353-5231.
