2021 Summer Classes

2021 College Acceleration Program

Challenge yourself and kickstart your college career this summer by taking college-level courses through Monmouth University’s College Acceleration Program (CAP). Motivated high school rising seniors can enroll in introductory courses that are typically taken by college freshmen and are generally accepted for transfer at other colleges and universities.

Through CAP, you will complete a rigorous curriculum led by faculty who are at the top of their fields.. You can explore different subjects, beef up your college resume, learn something new, and earn 3-6 credits.

CAP Courses

Our visiting high school students are given the opportunity to choose from the introductory courses, with no prerequisites. For additional help with course selection, please contact Danielle Colbert in the Office of Undergraduate Admission at 732-263-5872 or
