RU-N Accelerate

In This Section

Summer 2023 dates: Mondays - Thursdays, July 10 - August 16, 2023 (orientation session during the last week of June). Lunches will be provided on program days from July 10- August 16.

Newly admitted students who have placed a deposit to enroll at Rutgers University-Newark for the 2023 Fall semester and have completed their placement tests can get a jump on their coursework with the new RU-N Accelerate program. The university is making this program available to qualified students free of charge, with no tuition charges, fees, or book/course software costs! What's more, you'll earn $1,650 to compensate you for the time you'll spend completing the program.

Students who place into either Intermediate Algebra (Math 105) or Communication Skills (Composition 098 or 099) will have the opportunity to learn required course material during Rutgers University – Newark’s second summer session in 2023. Successful completion of course material will enable students to advance one course level, permitting many to start the Fall 2023 semester with a Math or Composition course directly satisfying university Core Requirements. This will put them on-track for a more rapid start to work in their major field and thus to a timely graduation. Successful completion of this summer program may enable students to earn college credits toward their Rutgers University-Newark bachelor’s degree.

In addition to regular class sessions, students will participate in a pre-program orientation, academic success skills workshops, and a post-program advisement session. One-on-one tutoring will be conducted outside of class hours. Tutoring is a required component of the course and a valuable resource that supports student learning and success. The intensive instruction, practice, support, and guidance that students who participate in the RU-N Accelerate Program receive will provide a solid, early start to each student’s college career.
