Jump Start

Accelerate through a pre-college course in 10 days! Jump Start NJC is an opportunity for incoming NJC students to arrive to campus early and accelerate through an entire pre-college level course—like CCR 92, MAT 50 or MAT 55—saving them from taking these 5-credits. Additionally, Jump Start NJC students settle into their resident hall early, make connections with other students, gain academic success skills, learn campus and community resources, and get a great head start on the academic year. Interested students must apply. Space is limited. Learn more about the Jump Start program here.
