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 begins offering summer courses at the Jersey Shore

Summer is approaching, which means sandy beaches, bathing suits and ... textbooks. The Jersey Shore is set to be more than a vacation destination this summer.

For the first time, Rutgers University is offering summer classes at the beach, called RU at the Shore.

Instead of paperback novels, Rutgers students might be bringing textbooks as their beach reading. The university will host 17 new undergraduate courses in Atlantic City, Cape May and Point Pleasant Beach.

University will offer 17 courses on its first Jersey Shore menu

            NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – Rutgers University-New Brunswick’s Summer Session, with more than 2,200 course sections, already one of the nation’s largest summer programs, is adding a new component with 17 courses at the Jersey Shore.

            The decision to establish “RU at the Shore” for 2015 was made following a survey of more than 4,500 undergraduates here, with 1,200 students – nearly 27 percent – indicating they would spend time along the 130-mile coastline and would be interested in taking classes for credit. Summer Session offers extensive internship and research/travel opportunities in addition to undergraduate and graduate courses in 250 fields.

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.
