For Fall 2024, Rutgers is planning to have a large majority of course sections in New Brunswick taught in-person. Some course sections will be delivered remotely/online, depending on the specific course and school.

Remote course sections will be delivered either live following a regular class schedule (synchronously) or “by arrangement” (asynchronously).

  • For courses listed in the Schedule of Classes with a scheduled day and time, students are expected to connect remotely during those times. These classes typically involve web conferencing.

  • For courses listed as “by arrangement”, there are no scheduled class sessions. These courses will have a regular schedule of work and assignments due throughout each week, but they will not require you to be online at a particular time. Rather, your instructor will provide materials—for example, readings, video content, presentations, lectures, assignments, and exams—and you can access these materials and satisfy the course requirements within time frames specified by the instructor.

For information about technology resources available to students, including information about WiFi and cellular access providers, please visit the Technology Resources for Students page.
