*NEW PROGRAM: BROOKDALE VIRTUAL ACADEMY
In partnership with the NJ Virtual School (Monmouth Ocean Educational Services Commission), high school students can take up to 30 college-level credits in an online environment. This option allows students the flexibility of taking fully online coursework while completing their high school graduation requirements, participating in after-school activities, and athletics! Students can complete an INTEREST FORM with the NJ Virtual School, and will be contacted by a Brookdale representative to complete the application and register for coursework (please see below for the online interest form).
Students can earn up to 30 credits via this option, and can choose from 25 different college-level courses. Credits earned through dual enrollment can be used toward degree requirements at Brookdale and/or, depending on a student’s program of study, transferred to a four-year college or university. Upon graduation, students may choose to come to Brookdale Community College, or they can transfer their credits to a four-year college. It should be understood that no college, including Brookdale Community College, can absolutely guarantee the transferability of its credits to another institution. Ultimately, transferability is up to each institution from which the student is seeking credit and any questions should be directed to that institution. Additionally, students receive discounted tuition for courses taken via the NJ Virtual School/Brookdale Virtual Academy.
To be eligible for the Virtual Academy, students must meet the following requirements:
- Current Junior (Rising Junior) or Senior (Rising Senior) in high school.
