RUTGERS SCHOOL OF LAW–NEWARK
INFORMATION FOR RUTGERS UPPERCLASS AND 1LE STUDENTS
SUMMER SESSION 2013
CLASSES, EXAMINATION DATES: All classes besides Legal Research and Writing II run from Monday, May 20th through Tuesday, July 16, 2013 except Legislative Research, a four-day intensive course which begins on Monday, May 13th and ends Thursday, July 25, 2013. Examinations for all classes will be scheduled on either July 18, 22 or 25, 2013. Examinations for all courses begin at 5:30 pm in rooms to be announced.
HOW TO REGISTER: Enrollment in any one or more of the classes offered this summer is done in three steps. First, you must complete and return the appropriate Sign-in Registration Form (which, for 1LE students, can be downloaded by clicking here, and for all other Rutgers students, can be downloaded by clicking here). This form can be submitted electronically by scanning and attaching it to an e-mail addressed to email@example.com, or you can bring it in and deliver it to Dean Garbaccio directly.
Second, you register, online. Click here to navigate to the instructions you need to register. To assist you in registering, you will need the Class Listing Spreadsheet (which you can navigate to and view by clicking here), which shows the meeting times and instructors for all classes, and also provides the course numbers and index numbers you will need when registering online. (You can have both the Class Schedule window and the Registration window open, and can toggle between them as you register. You can also navigate from the Class Schedule to the Summer Course Description page, to read about the classes that may interest you.)
Finally, after you have completed the registration protocol, you must go to the Bursar webpage, and view your account. The tuition and fees will appear in your account immediately upon registration as a balance due, and you must then pay that amount electronically, either by credit card or by electronic transfer from your bank account.  Note: Registration is not complete until all charges are paid; failure to pay any outstanding balance will result in deregistration from your classes. Financial aid (loans) is available for students taking three or more credits. Go to www.studentaid.rutgers.edu or contact Nicky Fornarotto for more information.
If you are a 1LE student, you will see on your Sign-In Registration Form that your course selection is limited to Legal Research and Writing II and Professional Responsibility. Please select the section of the writing class taught by the same instructor you have now. And at your option, you may also register for Professional Responsibility, which has been deliberately scheduled for the same evenings as the writing class, for your convenience. But please DO NOT REGISTER FOR ANY OTHER SUMMER COURSE. Until you have completed Constitutional Law and Property next fall, you are not eligible to register for these other elective classes.

Once the Summer session begins, a student may withdraw from a course or seminar by submitting a written notice, on the “Drop” form available from Dean Linda Garbaccio. A grade of “W” will be entered on the record in every case. After the start of the Summer session, a 50% refund of tuition will be given if a course is dropped during the first week (five business days) of Summer session classes (May 17th for Legal Research and Writing and May 24th for all other courses); thereafter, no refunds will be given.
In an examination course, withdrawals will be permitted until the day of the examination prior to the start of the actual examination.
In a seminar or non-examination course, withdrawals will be permitted until the final official meeting of the class and provided that the instructor consents to the withdrawal. A grade of “F” will be entered as the final grade for a student who does not sit for an examination (unless officially excused by the Dean’s Office) or who does not complete the course or seminar work when required by the instructor.
 The deadline for payment of the term bill is April 19, 2013. Any registration during the Late Registration must be done in person and the term bill must be paid on the day of Registration. Any bill paid during the Late Registration Period will be assessed a $50 Late Fee. In addition, a fee of $60 is charged for any check which is not honored for payment. Non-payment of your term bill does not constitute withdrawal, and does not excuse you from payment. (See Procedures for Withdrawal at the conclusion of the “General Registration Instructions, Summer 2013”). There is a 2.5% charge for payment by credit card.
