SOAR/Placement testing updates per COVID-19

Congratulations! We are delighted both you and your student have become members of the Rutgers University-Newark Raider family! You have worked hard to help clear your student's path to college. We understand that the path to graduation can be challenging for the students and their families. And we want to collaborate with you to ensure your student's success.

We know that it can be diffcult to find answers to your questions, but our staff is dedicated to making this process as easy for you as we are making it for your student. To assist you in understanding information that impacts their success, we have created this family page, which covers topics ranging from finances to parking. To the left, you will find a naviagtion bar that will help guide you through our numerous online resources.

To further assist you in learning about our offices and resources, RU-N has created a First Year Admitted Student Timeline, which we have shared with your student via their Enrollment Pathway, and the Parent SOAR Presentation that was discussed with you during the Student Orientation, Advisement and Registration (SOAR) Day.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the myRUN Call Center at 973-353-1766 ext. 1, or email us at myrun@newark.rutgers.edu

We urge all families to call any of our offices should you have any questions regarding the university or your students. You can call or email us at any time and let us know who you are so that we can find the best ways to assist you with the question at hand. We look forward to working with your student and we are excited to build a relationship with you, too.
