General FAQs

What should I do to prepare for my first UXD course?

You will receive an email about a week prior to the class start with additional information. The best thing to do now is to clear your work schedule for the week of the class to get the most out of the program. In general, no pre-class “homework” is required for the course unless you are taking the course as part of your MBS Master’s. In this case, the reading will be indicated on your Sakai course management system used for the course. However, if you want to read a relevant book before entering the course, we recommend: About Face 3: The Essentials of Interaction Design by A. Cooper, R. Reimann and D. Cronin.

I'm new to UX and am worried I'll be too old and feel left behind with all the new technology.

This course is focused on all areas of UX, and how UX thinking can be used in ALL areas of the work place. It is a methodology that can be practiced without needing to learn or by new software. It is open to all ages and experience.

I need wireless access during the class? Will it be available?

Wireless access is provided in most classrooms. However, we do not expect participants to be answering emails during the course time. There are breaks for surfing and home office communications.

I need to be in a four hour conference call on (Mon, Tue, Wed, etc.) Is this okay?

We can’t say no, but the UXD courses are too intense for conducting personal work within the course time. In addition, you will be working in teams and your team mates will need your input and effort. We recommend scheduling the conference call at another time or taking the course at another time.

If I park illegally, am I responsible for the ticket?

Most certainly. Yes. Absolutely.

What other courses do you have?

Several! See our pathways page from the main menu, or visit www.rie.rutgers.edu to see our complete catalog.

My company will not reimburse tuition paid by a credit card. What can I do?

If you prefer your company to be billed, please contact us and we will provide an invoice.

What are the prices of your programs, and are there any discounts?

Please visit each program page (HILARY LINK) for prices. In some cases, we offer discounts in conjunction with a promotion or advertising campaign. If you received a “promo code”, simply enter in the registration checkout page where indicated. Your prices will be updated to reflect that particular promotion.

Are courses ever canceled for inclement weather?

First, and foremost, if you do not feel comfortable enough to drive, please don’t! Classes are canceled when the university is closed; which is a rare event. Check website for weather updates and cancellations. Information will be posted here. You may also call our University Help Desk at 732-445-INFO. Please do not call the Rutgers University Police Department for closing or cancellation information.

Student FAQs

I'm already a Rutgers degree track student. How do I register for this course?

If you are already a Rutgers’ enrolled student, please register for this course through RU Webreg. The course number is 16:137:531.

Can I get University credit for the class?

It is possible for future credit. While we cannot guarantee credit will be accepted by other institutions, we have a decent success rate. Upon your request, we will provide you a letter acknowledging that you have taken the course and a transcript showing the letter grade you received. You must do all team assignments and final exam with the class you enrolled in order to receive a letter grade on the transcript.
Also, many of these courses are cross listed with the Rutgers Graduate School and routinely accepted for credit in the MBS program and many other degree programs. For example, if you decide to pursue a Master of Business & Science in UXD at Rutgers, credits will likely be accepted. Check with your advisor. NOTE: If you are already a Rutgers’ enrolled student, please register for this course through RU Webreg. This course number is 16:137:531.
