Program Overview

The High School Option Program (HSOP) was designed to provide high schools students with the opportunity to start taking college courses at a discounted cost. Completed courses under the HSOP program can be applied to a Rowan College of South Jersey associate degree program or easily transferred to other institutions of higher education. In addition, Rowan College of South Jersey 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 Rowan College of South Jersey'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. HSOP is currently only offered on the Gloucester Campus, but Cumberland County residents will now be charged in-county tuition.
