Colleges only transfer credit from another college, so the student must apply for admission to Gratz College. In order to earn college credit, the student needs to be a non-matriculated (i.e. non-degree seeking) concurrent enrollment student at Gratz College. Therefore, all students must fill out a Gratz College application.
It means that the student, while in high school, is concurrently enrolled in a college. When the credits are transferred, they are Gratz College credits, not JCHS credits. The college/university which accepts the credits determines whether or not they can go towards the student’s degree or if they will be used as electives.
No. The benefit of being a JCHS student is that there is NO APPLICATION FEE required.
If a student successfully completes all required coursework and academic papers, the student completes a college course, and the credits will be transferrable to an institution of higher learning. Over 70 colleges have accepted Gratz College credits in the past.
Concurrent enrollment is for seniors, and, on an exceptional basis, for juniors. If your child is currently in 11th grade, he will need two Letters of Recommendation. If your child is entering or is currently in 12th grade, only one recommendation is needed.
You may want to ask for recommendation letter(s) from those who know your child personally and academically: a Principal, Guidance Counselor, Teacher, or other Faculty/Staff Person.
Gratz College does not provide any particular form. Just as with any college recommendation letter, the person you ask should write an individual letter. For seniors, this can be the same letter as you will send to other colleges.
Yes, an acknowledgement will be sent to you that we received it. If there are missing pieces to the application, the Registrar follows up with the families.
Neither the SAT nor the ACT are required in order for the student to receive the “non-matriculated” college credits.
You would need to contact your school of choice and ask if they will accept credits from Gratz College.
The college course is like a course a student takes at any college. There are no refunds that are dependent upon a grade that a student earns. In addition, course credits count toward JCHS graduation.
Due to requirements of the Gratz College concurrent enrollment college credit program and according to guidelines established by participating schools in the NACEP (National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships), credits cannot be awarded retroactively. All applications must be received in the year the student is enrolled in the college credit course. NO exceptions are made.
