The High School Option Program (HSOP) provides high schools students with the opportunity to take Rowan College of South Jersey courses at a discounted tuition rate. Completed courses under HSOP can be applied to an RCSJ associate degree or be easily transferred to other institutions of higher education. In addition, RCSJ credits may satisfy high school graduation requirements through the N.J. Department of Education's Option Two.
Please Note: High School students may take advantage of HSOP during RCSJ's Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer semesters. However, the HSOP discount will only be applied through the spring semester of the senior year. Once Rowan College's summer semester commences, the HSOP discount will not be applied for current high school seniors. Students age out after 18 years of age.
