Register for Classes - Log in to WebReg. WebReg is short for web registration. It is the website where you can register for classes online. WebReg also allows you to search for open courses. For instructions on how to use WebReg, please review the Registration Instructions.
Please note that Fall registration begins in April and Spring registration begins in November. Once you have the pertinent information and know the courses you need, register at your leisure. If you have difficulty registering, contact the Office of Student Services (SCISS@comminfo.rutgers.edu or 848.932.7550 option 2). If you would like advisement or have questions about the curriculum, please consult with your Graduate Program Director, Richard Dool, Ph.D.
Find/Order Textbooks - Use Rutgers' Online Bookstore and navigate through the process by following the instructions. Enter the term, department, course number, and section where prompted to do so. The course number consists of a school, department, course, and section code that are each separated by a semicolon(ex."aa:bbb:ccc:dd”).
aa = School code (not used to find books)
bbb = Department
ccc = Course
dd = Section
Many professors do not use textbooks. If you do not see one associated with your course, then email the instructor for further information.
Use the Rutgers Directory to find your professors
Step 1: Find their name on the Online Schedule of Courses.
Step 2: Search their name via the Rutgers Directory.
Step 3: Locate their name (next to the “Comm/Div/Dept” entitled “SC&I-department”).
Access Online Course Material via Canvas- At Rutgers, the web-based course delivery system you will use for your courses is called Canvas. Like on-campus courses, online courses at Rutgers are not available until the first day of class. Also, you may or may not receive a notification via Canvas about enrollment. Do no panic if you do not! Some courses send notifications and others do not. So long as you are registered in webreg, you will have access to the course material in Canvas upon the start of the semester.
