Freshman Express


    This summer, New Jersey City University will offer entering first-year students the opportunity to prepare for college-level work during the summer before their freshman year and to make the transition from high school to college with ease and confidence.  


    All entering first-year students are eligible to take advantage of this program. Interested students will be placed into the appropriate option (A or B), based on their Reading, Writing, and Math Placement Test scores, and invited to enroll in that option's offerings during the Summer Session II, which runs from July 6th through August 6th, 2015. 



    • Freshman Express participants save money and often reduce the time required to complete an undergraduate degree by getting a head-start on either developmental or college-level requirements. Freshman Express participants save both time and money and increase the likelihood of graduating in four years by getting a head-start on either developmental or college-level requirements. 
    • Freshman Express participants build a support system of faculty, advisors, staff, and other students and enter the fall 2015 semester with a strong foundation for academic and social success. 
    • Freshman Express participants learn to navigate the NJCU system of support services and academic resources, allowing for a smoother adjustment to college life.  
    • Freshman Express participants receive intensive training in the areas of reading, writing and critical thinking, developing and reinforcing the skills they will rely on most heavily throughout their academic careers.
