Important Notice Regarding Rider’s Enrollment Deadline

In light of the challenges presented by the FAFSA delays, Rider University has extended the deposit deadline to June 1 for non B.F.A. majors.* Students who visit campus three times and commit to enroll before June 1 qualify for free textbooks! Students who applied and are eligible to receive early action benefits will still receive those benefits as long as they deposit by their appropriate deadline (May 1, May 15 or June 1).

Enrollment deposits for B.F.A. majors will only be accepted through May 15, 2024. Students interested in enrolling at Rider for a B.F.A. major after the May 15 deadline can elect to be placed on an enrollment waitlist and will be considered for the program to which they were admitted on a space available basis.

*Please note that this extension does not apply to B.F.A. (Acting for Film, Television and Theatre, B.F.A. or Musical Theatre, B.F.A.) students or anyone receiving a full-tuition, academic scholarship including, Trustee, voice, organ or Capital Health.
