  • College Acceleration Program

    How would you like to get a taste of what college life is like… before you graduate high school?! Motivated high school rising seniors can do just that by enrolling in Monmouth University's College Acceleration Program (CAP) this summer. Through CAP, students can enroll in introductory, college-level courses that are typically taken by college freshmen, and which will generally be accepted for transfer at other colleges and universities.

    Be prepared to receive an academically challenging curriculum taught by supportive and caring instructors. With class sizes averaging 21 students each, you will receive the personal attention you need to succeed. Explore different subjects, beef up your college resume, learn something new, earn 3-6 credits, and experience summer at Monmouth University!

    CAP Courses
    Our visiting high school students are given the opportunity to choose from the below introductory courses, and will be attending class during our 6-week summer E session which runs from July 9 - August 16, 2018.
