Students enrolled in Continuing Education Programs may attend day, evening or online courses where available.
Rider University’s Continuing Education Program (CEP) recognizes that learning is a lifelong process and that part-time students need flexible learning opportunities. Students enroll in the CEP for a variety of reasons: to earn a degree, to develop their professional skills, learn more about our complex society, expand their life-long learning, earn a certification, prepare for graduate study or prepare for a career change. Students participating in the CEP have diverse backgrounds and educational goals. Many enroll with high school backgrounds, while others bring college credits, undergraduate degrees or even graduate degrees. Our flexible curricula allows for courses to be taken during the day, evening, and online.
Students pursuing a degree program may also have the opportunity to earn college 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 admissions counselor to discuss program goals and have a transcript credit evaluation.
