Over three hundred of Rider’s credit-bearing courses earn Engaged Learning points because they incorporate rigorous, hands-on learning as part of the curriculum. Approved courses span disciplines and academic levels, and new courses are added throughout the year. There is no limit to the number of courses you can take that earn engaged learning points.
NOTE: The lists of approved courses are subject to change at any time. Check the list each semester during course selection to look for updates. The courses listed below may not be offered every semester.

When Will Points Earned for Courses be Displayed in DegreeWorks?
At the end of each semester once your passing academic grade has been recorded by the Registrar, the credits from the Engaged Learning courses you completed are converted into points, up to a maximum of 3 points for any one course. Points will be recorded on your Engaged Learning Transcript and in DegreeWorks within seven working days after grade submission is completed.
There are two ways you may review a comprehensive list of all Engaged Learning courses. You can view an alphabetical list of all courses by course prefix and number or a list of courses divided into the six Categories of Engaged Learning.
