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 for the classes to be easily transferable. A grade of "D" or "F" will result in issues during the transfer process to the college or university of their choice. Low grades will not result in the refund of tuition. Grades cannot be removed from a transcript.

How do I register?

Students must complete the "Project Acceleration Information Update" every semester they want to participate in the program. The form can be found through this link:

Register Now

The student/parent will receive the payment email 3-5 business days after completing the initial interest form. Please keep an eye on your Spam folder. The payment through our online portal will be the registration.

This payment email will have the student’s Seton Hall Student ID number along with a link to pay for your credits online. Please have them pay for the credits ASAP or they will not receive credits from Seton Hall University.

If students overpay, they will receive a refund; if the underpay, we will contact them directly about their bill. You will receive a receipt via email after completing the payment. Please keep this on file for record keeping purposes.

We will not be accepting any payments made after November 7th at 11:59 P.M. Any payment made on November 8th will be refunded. If you have not completed your payment for Project Acceleration by then, we will not register you.

Each credit is $105, meaning that a three-credit course will cost $315.

If you do not receive the proper emails within a week, please contact our department immediately at projectacceleration@shu.edu with your full name, high school, and email address.

Students should consult their instructors for further information about a course's registration requirements. 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 must inform students of the courses that are available at their academic location.

If your school pays for the credits, do not pay online.

How many credits can I take?

High school students can register for five Seton Hall approved courses per semester (unless approved for more by your high school). 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 $105 per credit hour, which is a considerable saving over the regular tuition rate. Payment should be made online through the link received via email. Credit count should be communicated through the high school.

Please keep a copy of the emailed receipt for your own records.

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 31 (Fall); March 5 (Spring). An email must be sent to the Project Acceleration office at projectacceleration@shu.edu.
