A Minor, In Time: International Student Stays on Course in Winter Session

For the 3,400 international students in Rutgers’s diverse student body, online courses taken during summer and winter terms enable them to be in two places at once.

Hailing from more than 115 countries, international students use online courses to hurdle time and distance barriers to complete required courses, pursue a minor, or chase other academic goals.

Bhagyawati Sanghani is one of those. She’s an international student who took a class even though she traveled back home to India over winter break.

Taking an online class -- remotely from her family’s home – as part of Winter Session at Rutgers University-New Brunswick allowed her to graduate with a minor in Public Health in May 2015. That minor rounded out her degree in Biological Sciences from the School of Environmental & Biological Sciences.

BTN LiveBIG: Rutgers brings classes to students 'at the Shore'

Rutgers brings classes to students 'at the Shore'

Far from being a surf-and-sun session with a little learning mixed in, it offered students intensive, intimate courses driven by practical considerations, said Liz Beasley, director of the summer session and special projects at Rutgers-New Brunswick.

“We’re always looking for new ways to get courses to the students,” she explained. “A lot of them work part-time or full-time. If they’re working, they have to cut back on the credits they take. The summer and winter courses are important to them for graduating in a timely manner.”

Rutgers’ Summer Scholars Program Enables High School Students to Experience College Life and Academics

Summer scholars

High-achieving high school students can experience university life, earn college credits, and get a head start on their post-secondary educations through Rutgers University’s Summer Scholars Program.

Summer Scholars, who must be high school juniors or younger, may take up to two Rutgers courses during Summer Session II (June 24-August 1), or Session III (July 8-August 14).

Students entering their junior or senior year of high school in fall 2013, who have a minimum GPA of 3.0, may apply to take introductory-level college courses. Exceptional students younger than 16 are considered on a case-by-case basis and are required to be interviewed and submit a PSAT or SAT score.

Scholarships covering 20 percent of the course tuition are available to students with a recommendation letter from their guidance counselor.
