The best of classroom and online education will be available to students enrolling in Rutgers’ Winter Session on the New Brunswick Campus this year as more courses are delivered in online and hybrid formats than ever before.

Responding to the increasing popularity of online education, Winter Session, December 21 through January 18, will offer nearly 40 percent of its courses in fully online or hybrid – part online, part classroom – formats. Online registration is in progress until December 3 for more than 100 traditional, online and hybrid courses.

Rutgers students like the flexibility that hybrid and online courses offer, and most students who have taken hybrid and/or online courses rate them equal to, or better, than traditional classroom courses in terms of their interactions with professors and classmates, engagement in the courses, and instructional methods.
