Academy College Courses for High School Students

Academy College Courses at NJIT are designed for high-achieving 11th and 12th graders who want to get a jump on their college careers. Participants may earn up to 8 college credits in small, customized classes taught by faculty who have been recognized for their commitment to teaching excellence. Classes meet on Saturdays during the fall and spring sessions and Monday through Friday during the summer session. At the end of the program, grades are recorded on an NJIT transcript which, upon your request to the registrar, will be sent to the university or universities of your choice. Course credits can be applied toward an undergraduate degree at NJIT and most other colleges and universities.

Academy College students have the option of living on the NJIT campus during the summer session (at an additional charge*) or commuting to the university. As a campus resident, you will live in an NJIT dormitory, arriving Monday morning each week and leaving on Friday. Specially trained counselors will help make your stay comfortable.
