Credit Hour Requirements

At least fifty percent of semester hours of credit in the area of a student’s major must be taken at Rider. 

Students are required to have 54 semester hours completed before enrolling in most 300- or 400-level business courses.

Fifty percent of all business credits must be taken through Rider. Transfer students can bring in 30 credits in business plus Quantitative Methods, Statistical Methods I and II, Macroeconomics and Microeconomics. All business students must have a 2.0 GPA's in their major and overall to graduate.

For all students, of the 120 semester hours of credit required for graduation, the last 30 must be taken at Rider.

Once a student has matriculated for a degree, credit for off-campus courses will be granted only with prior approval of the academic dean.
