Curriculum worksheets list all the courses needed to successfully graduate with a business major. They are available in the Students’ Reception area and online.
Your worksheet is designed to provide you with accurate & timely information about your progress. It is both a record of what you’ve done, and a guide to what’s needed for graduation. Your worksheet informs you and helps you to think strategically about your educational goals.
Students are classified in the following manner:
0-22 credits Freshmen
23-57 credits Sophomores
58-89 credits Juniors
90+ credits Seniors
Majors are often declared at the time of application, but MUST be declared by the end of Sophomore Year. Students should make an appointment to meet with an Academic Services staff member to select or change their majors and/or minors, as Major/Minor Change forms must be signed and turned in to the Registrar to be official.
Students should meet with an Academic Services Office staff member to add a second major and learn of the requirements.
A double major consists of two majors within the same school or college; RSBC double majors must complete a minimum of 135 degree credits. Accounting is always the primary major when double-majoring with Accounting. A dual major consists of two majors from two different schools or colleges (for example: a student that majors in Psychology and Marketing). Dual majors must complete a minimum of 150 degree credits, and all Major and General Education requirements for both schools.
You must receive approval from the Academic Services Office prior to course enrollment. Interested students should complete and submit a Non-Rutgers Course Request form to the Academic Services Office at least 30 days before the class starts.
Interested students should proceed to the School to School (S2S) Admission website for information, deadlines and an application for an internal Rutgers University transfer to the RSBC. Applicants should apply while they are enrolled in their final major perquisite course(s). Please refer to the deadlines on the S2S website: https://admissions.rutgers.edu/schooltoschool/
Students in unsatisfactory academic standing who wish to return to Rutgers should submit a Reinstatement Appeal Application.
Information about placement testing will be contained in your correspondences from the Office of New Student Programs (ONSP). Call them at (856) 225-6689.
State law mandates that all newly admitted students are required to participate in a math placement exam, in the absence of an approved college level math course. Exams may also be required in a foreign language and English, dependent on the level of student achievement. The Admissions Office or a Transfer Summary Report will inform students of the need to be tested.
All new students must register via an Advising & Registration Day event, through the Office of New Student Programs.
Transfer Credit/Evaluation Process
- Your initial evaluation did not include courses in which you enrolled at the time of your application.
- Your most recent transcript has not been received and/or processed.
- You may have courses which may need to be reviewed by an academic department (departmental evaluation) to determine the proper equivalency.
It depends on certain criteria; more information is available at https://newstudents.camden.rutgers.edu/general_transfer . Students who are considering transferring to Rutgers from another school should work carefully with their advisor to plan their selection of courses. Please consult the New Jersey Transfer Website for specific course acceptance information.
Students have one year from the date of enrollment (first day of classes) to initiate a dispute regarding the transfer of credits.
Full time registration is twelve (12) credits per semester.
As long as you maintain full-time status (12 or more credits in a semester), nothing will change – nor will you get a refund. If dropping a course changes your status to part-time, it is highly recommended that you meet with an Academic Advisor about the implications before making changes to your schedule.
A semester registration of more than 18 credits is considered an overload which must receive proper approval from the Academic Services Office using the Registration Overload Request Form.
If the instructor adds you to a closed course, the registration system requires an SPN to authenticate your approval to enroll in the course. The Academic Services Office provides SPN’s for RSBC courses only.
There are a limited number of RSBC courses available to non-business students. Registration for upper level RSBC courses is restricted to current RSBC students. Students should contact the Academic Services Office, if they have concerns/questions. For more information about course selection and registration, students should make an appointment to meet with an Academic Services Office staff member.
Most students withdraw from one or two courses during their undergraduate years. One or two W grades will not alarm most employers. A consistent pattern of W grades over time, however, can be a detriment to your post-graduate job search. If you are having trouble with courses, schedule an appointment to see an advisor before you have no choice but to withdraw.
Sometime during their 2nd Junior semester (75-90 credits), students should schedule an appointment to review their curriculum worksheet with an advisor, confirm the remaining courses needed to graduate, and develop a plan of action to ensure timely graduation. While not currently mandatory, Pre-Senior Reviews are strongly encouraged.
While there are a few appointments prior to 6pm each week (with 48 hours’ advance notice), some students are unable to make it to campus during those times due to a combination of work, family, or class engagements. Phone appointments are also available for most topics, though Pre-Senior Reviews are preferably held in person. When you call to schedule an appointment, simply let the scheduler know you would like a phone appointment. Prior to the appointment, email your advisor a copy of your up-to-date curriculum worksheet, along with any questions you hope to address during the meeting.
Students may write a formal letter to the Academic Services Office requesting special permission to substitute one course for another, describing your specific case. Permission is not guaranteed and is granted on a case-by-case basis.
