The aim of the Summer Institute was to ensure that students are better prepared to meet the rigorous academic and socio-emotional demands of Rutgers in the fall. We are proud to inform you that the Summer Institute has been a wonderful experience; 99% of the participants successfully completed the program and will be enrolled at the university in the fall. Most students will receive three to five degree credits--some slightly more. Relatedly, new EOF transfer students will be attending a transition program scheduled over three evenings this summer in August.
As a result of the academic classes and enrichment experiences such as time management sessions, study skills workshops, and test preparation seminars—just to name a few, students should be prepared to perform well in and outside the classroom.
All incoming first-year students who are admitted to the School of Arts and Sciences, School of Business, and Mason Gross School of the Arts EOF Program are required to attend the Summer Institute. The 2013 SAS EOF Summer Institute is a 5-week residential program. It takes place from Saturday, June 29th through Friday, August 2nd. The Summer Institute is designed to help students make the academic, social, and emotional transition from high school to college. Students will live on-campus in the Hardenbergh Hall on the College Avenue Campus, earn degree credits (or move on to the next level of developmental courses), strengthen their academic skills, and become prepared for life as a successful college student.
All students will take a writing course, and most students will take a math course, based on Rutgers University placement test results. Students interested in pursuing the sciences, and possessing the necessary placement test results, will be able to take Foundations of Biological Sciences. Students admitted to the School of Business will take Introduction to Business. Students who are interested in pursuing majors that do not require math beyond Intermediate Algebra will be able to take Topics in Math for the Liberal Arts or Introduction to American Cultures. Since summer course enrollment is based on placement test results, students are encouraged to take their placement tests as soon as possible (and no later than June 4th).
