Immaculata University’s Jump Start Summer Program allows high school students to experience college life, take undergraduate courses and earn college credits. For summer 2020, this comprehensive academic program is fully online, providing remote courses selected especially for pre-college students.

The Jump Start Program runs four weeks, from June 22 to July 17. Credits earned during the summer program are valid college credits, accepted at Immaculata University and typically transferrable to other colleges and universities, at the discretion of the receiving institution. Immaculata University is regionally accredited, and institutions traditionally accept transfer credits from an accredited university as long as students earn a “C” or better.

Jump Start Summer Course Offerings:

  • Biology—Viruses: Biological Hijackers (1 credit)
  • Business—Financial Literacy for Teens (3 credits)
  • Communications—Cell Phone Photography (3 credits)
  • Computer Information Systems—Introduction to Linux (3 credits)
  • Fashion—Fashion Industry and Design (3 credits)
  • Psychology—Outliers (1 credit)
  • Sociology—Sociology of Media & Pop Culture (3 credits)

Students who have achieved a grade point average of 3.0 and are rising high school juniors or seniors or who are graduating from high school in 2020 may enroll in this program. Students must submit their high school transcripts or a letter from their guidance counselors indicating a 3.0 grade point average.

The cost per credit is $100. Some courses may have associated fees. For more information, or to submit your registration, please visit or email
