  • What is Project 100?  

    Project 100 is an alternative first-year course of study designed to improve both academic performance and retention of first-year students in need of basic skills development.  Under the traditional Academic Foundations program, many students are required to take as many as 14 semester hours of non-degree credit bearing remedial coursework before taking one college credit-bearing course.  Using a Learning Communities model, in which courses are linked to form course blocks, Project 100 offers its students an integrated program of skills development and content-based academic coursework.  This structure reduces remediation requirements while upholding rigorous academic standards and providing a support system for all participating students.

    Collaboration with The Learning Community Program (TLC) and Project Mentor: 

    Project 100 offers an integrated regimen of academic remediation, rigorous degree-credit coursework, and learner development support by working closely with both The Learning Communities Program,a TRIO Student Support Services Project funded by the US Department of Education and NJCU, and Project Mentor, a Regional Center for Students with Learning Disabilities, funded by the New Jersey Commission on Higher Education Special Needs Grant Program. Nearly all TLC and Project Mentor students begin their studies in Project 100.  In connection with these programs, Project 100 affords its students protracted contact with a wide range of learner development resources on campus, including tutoring services, library and technology resources, workshops, counseling and academic advisement.  P100 seeks to create a vital community and strong support system for students, faculty, and staff by working to coordinate efforts and increase communication among a wide range of academic and support services for students.
