Freshmen

Engage with Honors

  • Stay connected with SASHP on social media through our Facebook page, Instagram, & SAS Honors Blog
  • Commuters & Off-Campus students should check out the various amenities available to them on all four campuses, as well as events organized by the Rutgers Commuter Student Association. 
  • Explore! Consider an Honors Program Global Experience, a Rutgers Study Abroad Program, or an exchange program to another university in the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, or the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Connect with Campus Resources

  • If you are considering the pre-law track, connect with the Pre-Law Office for pre-law advising. 
  • If you are on the pre-health track, connect with the Health Professions Office (HPO) for pre-health advising. 
  • Visit University Career Services to hone your resume, discuss career options based on your academic interests, practice mock interviews, and attend internship and career fairs.
  • The Rutgers Learning Center offers group tutoring in both introductory and advanced level courses, but also offers free academic coaching to help with time management and test anxiety.
  • There is a range of national fellowships to consider applying to as early as your first year at Rutgers. 
  • Information regarding merit-based scholarships is available through the SAS Scholarship Office.  
  • Bookmark these valuable websites:
    • Academic Calendar has important information about academic deadlines, including add/drop and withdrawal deadlines, holiday closings, and change of class day designations.
    • Academic Departments has links to every SAS academic department and pertinent advising information related to their major(s).
    • Degree Navigator helps students stay on track with their SAS core, major, and minor (if applicable) requirements.
    • Majors & Minors lists every available SAS major and minor, as well as which majors are considered credit-intensive.
    • SAS Core Curriculum lists all the available SAS core courses organized by academic department.
    • SAS Forms are all online.

Be mindful of the SAS Honors Academic Progress Policy.

    • All honors students must earn a minimum 3.25 semester GPA during their first year and a 3.5 semester GPA every semester thereafter.
    • We highly recommend that you take a Byrne Seminar in your first year. These wonderful, small 1-credit courses are only available your first year, and it fulfills your 2nd Honors Colloquium.
    • The Global Language Proficiency Requirement is more than a requirement; it prepares you as a member of an increasingly globalized society.  Check out all four options; there is something for everyone!

Expand your horizons

  • Visit the Aresty Research Center to learn about their summer and academic-year research opportunities. 
  • Go beyond the classroom! Choose from over 450 student organizations to join. 
  • Stay in touch regarding upcoming events, programs, and involvement opportunities at Rutgers University by signing up for the RU Involved listserve.

 Take care of your mind & body!

  • Speak with a confidential professional at Counseling, ADAP, & Psychiatric Services (CAPS).
  • De-stress at any of the free classes offered at the campus Recreation Centers.
