Continuing Education Programs

Rider's Continuing Education Program (CEP) recognizes that learning is a lifelong process and that part-time students need flexible learning opportunities. Students enroll in continuing education for a variety of reasons: to earn a degree, to develop their professional skills, learn more about our complex society, expand their personal lives, earn a certification, prepare for graduate study or prepare for a career change.   Students participating in CEP programs have diverse backgrounds and educational goals.  Many enroll with high school backgrounds, while others bring college credits, undergraduate degrees, or even graduate degrees. CEP students may take courses during the day, evening, and online. 

Students pursuing a degree program may also have the opportunity to earn credits by nontraditional means, such as Advanced Placement, College Level Examination [CLEP], NYU foreign language proficiency testing, the American Council on Education [ACE], DSST exams, formal military credits, validation or assessment of a specific course or Prior Learning Assessment [PLA] based on demonstrated learning acquired through life and work experience.

Prospective students are welcome to make an appointment with a CEP academic advisor to discuss program goals and have a transcript credit evaluation.  Enrolled students may contact Terri Marriott, Director, Undergraduate and Graduate Academic Success, 609-895-5454 or marriott@rider.edu with any questions.
