“Students who take pre-college courses easily enhance their college admissions applications because their successful completion of these rigorous college courses shows admissions officers that they are motivated and able to meet the challenge of college-level work,” said Ramapo College Provost, Dr. Beth Barnett.  “Many students, including those already accepted to a college or university, also welcome the opportunity to earn college credit early, helping to reduce their course load once they enter college.”

Each of Ramapo College’s new Jumpstart Pre-college Programs offers hands-on learning supplemented by lectures, seminars and field trips.  Many programs include a closing day presentation to fellow students, friends, and family.  Participants live in brand new air-conditioned single-room residence halls on the beautiful Ramapo College campus and programs are fully packaged to include instruction, course materials, housing, meals, evening activities, and trip fees.  While students are strongly encouraged to participate in the full residential experience, commuter students are also welcome.

The application deadline for the programs ends June 14.  For additional information about Ramapo College’s new Jumpstart Pre-college Programs, please visit or contact Rosa Diaz-Mulryan, Assistant Vice President for the Center for Innovative and Professional Learning, at 201.684.7370 or at
