REGISTERING FOR CLASSES
WITHDRAWING FROM COURSES
No full or partial refunds will be processed after the start of class, so please review the course requirements very carefully, and contact the instructor with any questions ahead of time. This policy is strictly observed.
Withdrawals may be done with webreg, Winterim website, hard copy Change of Course Form at either the Winterim Office or the Registrarís Office, or written communication sent to the Winterim Office at 311 North Fifth St., Camden, NJ 08102, FAX: (856)225-6524. Written communication must include the student's name, ID number, and the complete course information of the course(s) involved. Verbal withdrawals (in person or over the phone) are not permitted. Not paying the bill does not constitute a withdrawal from class.
Once the class has begun no full or partial refunds will be granted, so it is strongly suggested that students contact the instructor before the class starts with any questions they might have regarding content. Withdrawal without failing grade is permitted until Thursday, January 10, 2013. No withdrawals will be permitted after that date. It is strongly suggested that students contact the professor to review the course syllabus before the class starts to avoid problems with class conflicts or workloads.
TERM BILL AND PAYMENT OF FEES
PLEASE NOTE: Rutgers has moved to a paperless billing system. No hard copy bills will be generated or mailed. Bills may be viewed on the student accounts website https://rutadmin.rutgers.edu/sarapp1. If you do not know your RU ID or PAC, instructions for obtaining that information are linked directly next to the login box. For non-Rutgers students, the student RUID and PAC will be emailed to them upon completion of their registration. Full online payment instructions may be viewed at http://studentabc.rutgers.edu/billing/billinginstructions.php Payment may be made either in person at the Bursar's Office (phone 856-225-6021; FAX 856-225-6017; located at Armitage Hall 311 North Fifth St.), or through several remote means. Cash will be accepted only in person at the Bursar's Office. Payment may be otherwise made via the website, by check, or by credit card. For more information regarding payment plans, please contact the Bursar's Office at 856-225-6021.
Website payment may be done via the Student Accounting Website for students who have a Rutgers ID. To determine your RUID and Personal Access Code, see the links next to the login box or contact the Registrar's Office at 856-225-6053. Students may either use a Credit Card or an E-Check for payment. Please note that there are additional fees for using Credit Cards for payment (see Credit Card Payments below).
Checks should be made payable to Rutgers, The State University, and should include the student's RUID and phone number on the check. Payment must be made either in person or by mail to the Bursar's Office before deadlines (see CALENDAR). If the payment is mailed, it should include with the check a printed copy of the online bill. The date on which the cashier receives the bill payment is the effective date of payment. Postmark dates will NOT be considered as payment dates. Returned checks incur a $50 late fee and a $10 return check fee. Payment must be made in full by the due date.
Credit Card Payments for the student bill may only be made via the Student Accounting Website and will no longer be accepted at the Cashier's Window in the Bursar's Office. You also may NOT mail or FAX credit card information with the term bill to the Bursar's Office. Credit Card Payments will be assessed an additional, non-refundable fee of 2.2% of the amount paid with the card. We accept American Express, Mastercard, and Discover.
Payment Plan: Due to the short schedule of the Winterim, there are no extended payment plans available.
Financial Aid/Student Loans: Financial Aid is not normally available for JUST the Winterim Session, but may be drawn from either Fall or Spring awards. Student Loans may be available - please contact Financial Aid for more information at 856-225-6039. PLEASE NOTE: receiving your award letter does NOT pay your bill - you must still submit the bill to the Bursar's Office and designate the funds to pay the Winterim Session balance. This does not automatically happen upon receiving the award notice. The Financial Aid Office is located in the lower level of Armitage Hall, just below the Registrarís Office, phone (856)225-6039.
Please note that students will not be able to pay immediately for classes submitted via the Winterim website registration form. A registration form submitted via the Winterim website will require two business days before charges appear in the Bursarís system and payment may be made in a remote fashion. Registrations made through the Registrarís webreg system update same day. Please note that late fees are charged based on date of receipt of payment, not date of receipt of registration.
Students are responsible for the course tuition and fees unless they officially drop the course by the appropriate deadline, regardless of whether they attend the class. Students who do not pay for their course by the deadlines will NOT be eligible to receive either a grade or credit for the course. Not paying the bill does not constitute a withdrawal from class.
Late Payments: Any bill paid during the late registration period must be paid in person and must include a $50 late registration fee. The date on which the cashier receives the bill payment is the effective date of payment. Postmark dates will NOT be considered as payment dates.
Refunds for withdrawals will be granted until the start of class. Once the class has begun, no full or partial refunds will be granted. Refunds are granted by the Bursar's office and take 7-10 business days to process - contact the Bursar's Office at (856)225-6021 for more information. Generally speaking, refunds are granted in the form of a check made out to the student. The check will be held in the Bursar's Office until instructions for distribution are provided by the student.
GRADES AND TRANSCRIPTS
Winterim Session grades and transcripts will be available in the Spring term. Grades for continuing Rutgers University students will not be reflected in the cumulative average immediately. Visiting students should contact the Registrar's Office Transcript Order (856-225-6053) to have official transcripts forwarded to their home colleges. Official Transcripts will be available as of January 25, 2013.
