Jumpstart Program

Did you apply for the Fall Term but haven’t registered for classes yet? If so, we are inviting you to our Jumpstart Program, a registration event for New High School Graduates only. We are hosting Jumpstart programs at the Lincroft campus or at any of our convenient locations in Freehold, Hazlet, Long Branch, Neptune or Wall. We have set aside dates throughout the summer with our Recruitment, Advising, Registration, and Regional Locations teams to help you register for the Fall Term.

Those applicants who need to fulfill the Accuplacer test requirements may (at some locations) take the placement exam in a testing session several hours prior to the start of the program. Some Jumpstart sessions do not offer a testing option, so you may take the Accuplacer on your own prior to the date you select. Testing at the Lincroft Campus is on a walk-in basis, no appointment needed. If you choose to test at one of our Regional Locations, please call them to make an appointment. You may be waived from the Accuplacer if you submit qualifying SAT or ACT scores. To see if your scores meet our requirements, please visit the Testing Services webpage. If you have scores that will waive you from Placement Exam (Accuplacer), please be sure to submit those scores and also bring a copy with you the day of your Jumpstart.

The number of seats is limited. Reserve your seat today by registering online or by calling 732-224-1857. Please note that this is a student-only event.
