Frequently asked questions

Check out these faqs on Rutgers Academic Calendar.

What is the schedule of classes?

The Schedule of Classes provides a listing of all university courses. Rutgers works with schools and departments on the New Brunswick campuses and the Summer/Winter Session office to process courses so that they appear on the SOC with all the correct course attributes, prerequisites, cross-listing information, budget codes, and more.

What is the course scheduling system?

The Course Scheduling System is a Web-based interface that departments and academic units use to communicate course scheduling requests.

What are standard class periods?

The New Brunswick campuses operate on a series of standard course periods. The starting and ending times are staggered by campus to facilitate inter-campus travel. Most courses run for 80 or 55 minutes, although there are exceptions such as double periods and labs that last for more than 80 minutes.
