The purpose of this program is to provide qualified high school students from partnered schools with the opportunity to take college credit courses at their school during the regular academic year, on the NJIT campus through the Pre-College Academy and, for certain students, to become involved in a meaningful research experience. These courses will be taught by teachers certified by NJIT as an adjunct faculty member in the related NJIT department. In general, junior and senior high school students with an overall average of “B” or better, including course prerequisites, will be permitted to enroll in college credit courses. Through on-site programs, “certified” high school teachers will instruct college credit course(s) as part of their regular load at their secondary school.
