Late Registration

Students that did not register by the December 22 deadline may submit a Late Registration Form through the Summer & Winter Session's Application Portal. Registration is contingent upon instructor approval. The Office of Summer & Winter Sessions will request that approval on your behalf. All status updates and messaging regarding your Late Registration request will be communicated through the Application Portal. If a late registration request is approved, students must pay their term bill immediately.

Closed Courses & Special Permissions

There are instances when registration in certain closed courses may be allowed. Please contact the academic department offering the course to determine option availability. If approval is granted by the academic department, a six-digit Special Permission Number will be issued to the student by that department. The Special Permission Number must be entered when prompted by WEBREG or provided to the Office of the Registrar if registering in person.

Registering for a Course With a Prefix

If registering for a course where a prefix may be needed, you must do so in person at the Office of the Registrar. See samples below.

Pass / No Credit

A grade of Pass (equivalent to grades of A, B+, B, C+, and C) or No Credit (equivalent to grades of D and F) is assigned to a student who has registered for his or her course on that basis. This option is open only to juniors and seniors in good academic standing. No more than one course may be taken on a Pass/No Credit basis during the Summer Session, and credit is not allowed for more than four courses. This option may be used for electives only; it may not be used for courses required in the major or for courses used to satisfy the general curriculum requirements. Non-RU students are not permitted to take courses on a P/NC (Pass/No Credit) basis. Only Rutgers University students may take courses on a P/NC basis, when such registration is in accord with the regulations of the student's college and the faculty offering the course. Request for P/NC grading must be made at the time of registration by inserting the symbol P or NC in the "credit hour prefix" column on the registration form. This option may not be made or changed after registration is completed.

Dropping & Withdrawing From a Course

Students must officially drop a course by December 22 in order to receive a full refund. Do not anticipate that the university will automatically drop you from a class due to non-payment or non-attendance.

To drop or change a course before the session begins, please visit WebReg or contact the Office of the Registrar. Refer to the Winter Session Registration Calendar for the specific date information. 

To withdraw once the session begins, please contact the Office of the Registrar. It is the student's responsibility to verify that their financial account and registration schedule have been successfully updated after withdrawing. Please refer to the Winter Session Registration Calendar for the partial refund and no refund withdrawal dates.
