College Advantage Program

The University’s commitment to academic excellence is manifested through the College Advantage Program. This program provides qualified students the opportunity to have concurrent enrollment at their high school and St. John’s University. This program offers enrollment in University level credit-bearing courses to qualified juniors and seniors during the academic year.

Specific courses are offered in the areas of English, mathematics, foreign language, fine arts, science, and humanities.

This program benefits high-achieving students to be further motivated and to get a "head start" on college.

  • Courses are offered at a substantial cost reduction.
  • Students who enroll in St. John’s University in the fall semester after their graduation from a partnered high school receive a substantial grant for each of their four years of enrollment in the University.
  • All courses and grades become part of the student's academic record at St. John’s University.  However, not all courses may be applicable to the student's major upon initial enrollment, or if the student remains enrolled at the University under another major.
  • Most institutions of higher education require a minimum grade of a “C” to be achieved for credit evaluation.  However, some courses, with grades higher than a “C” may not be applicable to the student's major.  Please contact potential institutions.
