Course Schedule and Registration FAQs

How will I know in the Schedule of Classes (SOC) if a course is being offered in-person or online? How about in Course Schedule Planner (CSP) and WebReg?

For fully face-to-face course meetings, the SOC, CSP, and WebReg will list the days, times, campus, and classroom of the class meetings.

Hybrid course sections will list the days, times, campus, and classroom for the in-person meetings and then specify the format of the online component.

Sample Hybrid Sections — German

The listings for online-synchronous course will specify the days and times of the class meetings and will have a campus designation of “Online.”

The listings for online asynchronous courses will be denoted as “Asynchronous online content” and will not include days or times for class meetings.

You will be also able to search the SOC, CSP, and WebReg by course delivery format.

How can I tell if my online course is synchronous (has mandatory meetings) in CSP and Webreg Schedule grid view?

If an online course is synchronous, it will show up on schedule grids at the specified meeting times with the campus denoted, “Online.”

Before the end of the add-drop period in September, you can switch into any open course section that does not conflict with the other courses on your schedule.

Why does the availability of in-person courses vary so much across academic programs? My friend can make an entirely in-person schedule, but I only have two or three in-person courses for my programs.

Academic departments created their Fall 2021 course schedules to best meet the needs of their students and their programs. Some departments chose to offer more online courses in order to accommodate higher student enrollments, while other departments discovered over the past two semesters that some courses can be effectively delivered online and doing so allows greater flexibility for their students.

I want a fully in-person course schedule. Will that be possible?

You can use the new search features in SOC, CSP, and WebReg to see only in-person courses. Most students will likely have a mix of in-person, hybrid, and online courses.

I do not want to come to campus for classes. Will I be able to choose a fully online schedule?

Unless you are enrolled in a fully online degree program at Rutgers, you cannot be assured of a fully online schedule. There will be several remote course offerings, but these will be offered for single courses rather than entire programs.

You should contact your academic program advisors to see whether you will have the option to take a fully online schedule. You can also search the SOC, CSP, and WebReg to see the online course options for the courses you are interested in taking.

How will internships/field experiences/research opportunities be held? In-person, online, hybrid?

These decisions have yet to be made. They will depend on the evolving public health situation and the guidance provided by state and federal officials.
