Important Information for Spring 2022 Registration

For spring semester 2022, SMLR will offer courses in a variety of modalities. In-person sections of all required courses for the Bachelor of Science in Labor Studies and Employment Relations, as well as in-person sections of many electives, will be available. In addition, and in keeping with SMLR’s long history (long before COVID) of offering high quality online courses, we will continue to offer asynchronous and synchronous remote courses.  While the final numbers of courses may change closer to spring due to student demand, at present we are planning to offer approximately 60 in-person sections, and 60 online sections of courses.  

The Bachelor of Science program in Labor and Employment Relations is designed so that students with at least one year of college can complete their degree through a flexible combination of online, daytime, weekend, evening, and/or off-campus courses. In addition, re-enrollment is made easy for those who must interrupt their studies, and non-matriculated status is available for visiting students who want to try a few courses in the program. 

  • Transfer up to 60 credits to Rutgers from a county college
  • Transfer up to 90 credits from a combination of 2 and 4 year institutions
  • Fulfill all your general education requirements with an AA or AS from a NJ county college (numerous AAS degrees also fulfill many requirements)
  • Flexibly combine online and in-person courses
  • Attend daytime, evening, and weekend classes in New Brunswick or at off-campus locations

Participants also have the option to earn a master's degree through SMLR's five-year plan.

If you have approximately two years of college credits, it is possible to complete this degree entirely online. You should be sure your general education requirements are complete before attempting this. For more information about transferring to the B.S. program in Labor and Employment Relations, visit our transfer information page.
