Summer Session Checklist
Summer Session students, take the below actions in order to ensure that your student account is in good standing and you are prepared for the semester ahead.
Applying for Financial Aid
Students can apply for financial aid through the Office of Financial Aid and review the award letter here. If you are a Third Term student or started a fully online program over the summer and are receiving financial aid, contact us to verify your enrollment.
Signing Up for a Payment Plan
Summer Session students may also review the payment plan options available to select the most suitable plan. Once you have identified your payment plan, begin making payments as instructed through the Rutgers University Tuition Payment Plan (RUTPP).
Students may be eligible for a refund when financial aid, private loan funds, or direct payments (or any combination) credited to their term bill exceed the amount due. The paper refund check will be mailed to the student’s permanent home address on file and may take one week to arrive. If you are an international student with an international address and are eligible for a summer refund, complete this form to specify which refund option you prefer. Direct deposit is not an option for summer
Yes, you need to verify your attendance through the RUHere process at the start of each semester that you are registered to take classes.
Aid details for Summer Session and Third Term students will not be visible on their term bill. This includes Third Term Advanced Standing students in the School of Social Work, graduate students at Rutgers Business School in Newark, and students in the accelerated Bachelor of Science Program for the School of Nursing in Camden.
Further, all students enrolled for summer must take the following steps to ensure that the process is complete:
1. Sign the Master Promissory Note.
2. Complete Entrance Counseling.
Students can grant their parents, guardians, or an authorized third-party access to view and pay their term bill through the myGuest dashboard.
Individuals who qualify for this program may be eligible to participate in a job training course on a space-available basis without payment of tuition or general student fees. Other charges, including a mandatory $20 registration fee, are not covered by this program. Qualified participants must submit to the Registrar’s Office an approved Unemployed Person Job Training Form and Employability Development Plan from a state One-Stop Career Center no later than five (5) business days prior to the start of the summer session. For more details, please review the program policy.
Eligible dependents can use tuition remission during one Summer Session only. The dependent must be a continuing student. The Summer Session cannot be the student’s first term of attendance at Rutgers.
Eligible staff/faculty can use tuition remission to cover the tuition cost of their Summer Session courses.
Eligible graduate fellows or students receiving departmental scholarships will receive remission for tuition only.
If you are a continuing Rutgers student, although you may have signed up for direct deposit for the fall and spring semesters, summer refunds will only be issued by paper check and mailed to the home address on file. Most summer refund checks are issued upon request but will be mailed out in July, if they have not already been processed.
Only full-time summer students are required to be enrolled in an active health insurance plan. Students who are already enrolled in the Rutgers Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) receive coverage throughout the summer and do not need to re-enroll until the fall semester.
Students who have experienced special circumstances that resulted in missing a deadline for dropping or adding a course may appeal to the New Brunswick Office of Summer and Winter Sessions for a case review.
