Big Ten Academic Alliance Course Sharing Program

Rutgers University–New Brunswick has joined with six other Big Ten universities to offer an online course sharing program for our students.

For the Fall 2020 semester, any student currently enrolled as a degree-seeking undergraduate at a participating Big Ten university can take one online course with another participating Big Ten school. This opportunity is included as part of your Big Ten academic experience with no additional cost for the credit earned.

Learn more about the Big Ten Academic Alliance Course Sharing Program.

Rutgers course instruction begins on September 1. The last day to apply for a Rutgers course is September 4 and the last day to enroll is September 8.


The following guidance is meant for non-Rutgers students from the BTAA wishing to take a qualified course at Rutgers.

As a degree-seeking undergraduate student at your home institution, you will pay no additional tuition or fees at either your home institution or at Rutgers for this course. Rutgers will be waiving tuition and the student fees associated with attendance.

In order to have the course recorded in your academic record at your home institution, you will have to request to have the credit transferred, using your home institution’s standard procedures.

You will have the responsibility to determine the applicability of the selected course to your degree program at your home institution.

You may be required to purchase books, software, or other educational materials associated with your selected course through a third party.

While participating in this program, you cannot use the online course being taken at Rutgers to establish full-time status at your home institution.

If you are interested in taking a Rutgers course, please verify your eligibility on the BTAA website.
