It is extremely important for students to meet with their Advising Dean and Faculty Mentor at least once a semester. It is also critical that students learn degree navigator (the online degree audit system) in order to keep track of degree requirements and progress towards graduation.
It is never too early to meet for advising but approximately a month before registration begins, the schedule of classes will be posted on the website. At that time, students should be reviewing requirements on degree navigator, looking through the schedule of classes to see what is offered and making appointments with their Advising Dean and Faculty Mentor.
It is critical that students show up to their advising appointment prepared. Students should know their requirements and have an idea of the course they want to take.
The Registrar’s Office will send out an email of the exact date students can register. Students want to be fully prepared and ready to register online on the first day of eligibility.
Students will register each semester through the Rutgers University–Camden web registration system https://sims.rutgers.edu/webreg/ unless they are on academic probation or have some other restriction. Students on academic probation must meet with an Advising Dean in person.
It is critical for students to meet with their Advising Dean, Faculty Mentor and keep track of their own degree which will help students take ownership of their educational planning and college career at Rutgers University–Camden.
