Registration Information  

Who can participate?

In order to participate, your school must already be participating in Project Acceleration. If your school is not currently participating in the program, please feel free to forward contact information to projectacceleration@shu.edu and we will reach out to your school.

Project Acceleration courses are open to high school juniors and seniors in good academic standing who are capable of performing Advanced Placement (AP) or Honors coursework. Once registered, students must earn a grade of C (2.0 grade point average) or better in their Project Acceleration courses in order to receive Seton Hall University credit and to continue in the program. A grade of "D" or "F" will result in a student's termination from the program without being awarded credits.

Sophomores must receive approval from the Seton Hall Director of Project Acceleration prior to registering. The high school must contact the Project Acceleration office for instructions at (973) 761-9224 prior to submitting sophomore registration for approval.

How do I register?

Students should consult their instructors for further information about a course's registration requirements, which includes understanding the length of time the course will run during any academic year. Some courses are sequential, requiring registration and payment in both fall and spring semesters if students wish to receive credit for both semesters of the course. High school officials are encouraged to inform students of the courses that are available at their academic location.

If your high school is currently participating in Project Acceleration, please fill out the necessary form.  You will receive a confirmation email the following day with a registration form that you will need to fill out and print.

Courses are $75 per credit, so a 3-credit course costs $225.  You must ask your teacher for the correct name of the course, as well as the credit count and code.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email us at projectacceleration@shu.edu or call (973) 761-9224.

How many credits can I take?

High school juniors and seniors are allowed to register for (3) courses per semester, up to 11 credits per term, and can earn up to 22 credits over the course of their high school career. Credits per course range between 1, 3, and 4 credits.

What courses are available?

We presently offer courses in Mathematics, Computer Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Psychology, Political Science, Sociology, History, Communication, Criminal Justice, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, Latin, Greek, Music, Art, and Education.

The courses available to students depend on the offerings at their specific school.  Courses are offered during the fall and spring semester of the academic year (September - May). Registration begins in September (for fall semester) and January (for spring semester). Please consult the current course listing to verify course codes, titles, and credits.

What is the tuition?

Tuition for Project Acceleration courses is $75 per credit hour, which is a considerable saving over the regular tuition rate. Checks should be made payable to Seton Hall University. Include the student's name and Social Security number (or SHU ID) on the tuition check and staple the first page of the registration form. Students should return both the check and the registration form to the high school Project Acceleration teacher. Students should work with their high school official to get the correct high school registration code.

What if I need to withdraw from the class?

Students may withdraw from the course and receive a refund of their tuition during the registration period only if they notify both their high school teacher and the Project Acceleration office in writing by the withdrawal deadline: October 22 (Fall); February 22 (Spring).  An email must be sent to the Project Acceleration office at projectacceleration@shu.edu.
