Stockton partners with OCHS
Richard Stockton College in Galloway Township and Ocean City High School are partnering to offer college-level courses to high school students starting this fall, a way for students to save time and money in getting a college degree.
Ocean City joins nine other regional high schools in which Stockton faculty partner with high school teachers to ensure course content and quality. The courses are delivered in the high schools by the school’s instructional staff, who are mentored by Stockton faculty. Students pay $100 per credit. (In-state Stockton undergraduates pay $305.70 per credit hour, plus fees).
The college courses at Ocean City High School include Math 1100-Pre-Calculus, a four-credit course; Biology 1200-1205, Cells and Molecule, a five-credit course; and Techniques of Film and Video Production, a four-credit college course. Full tuition for Ocean City High School students is due by Sept. 30 and is nonrefundable once a class begins. A payment plan is available with 50 percent due by Sept. 30 and the remainder due by Oct. 30. Students will register for the college courses at an orientation/registration session that Stockton will provide at the high school in mid-September.
High school students who successfully complete the course (Stockton standards apply) will be awarded Stockton credit. The course will be entered on a Stockton transcript and in most instances can be transferred to most colleges. Those students going on for degrees at Stockton can apply the courses to their majors and degrees.
