The College Prep Program is a unique educational opportunity designed to provide high school seniors with a true college experience by earning academic credits during the early afternoon hours at Bergen Community College. BCC Prep students will attend their high school classes in the morning and return to their high school in time for extracurricular activities.
There are no minimum SAT scores or GPA requirements for BCC Prep classes. Students will take the ACCUPLACER (basic skills placement test) in their high school at the end of their junior year. ACCUPLACER scores will determine the student’s BCC Prep Program for the fall and spring semesters of their senior year. BCC Prep students are eligible for ACCUPLACER review sessions and related remediation as part of the program.
Students may earn up to 18 highly transferable college credits through BCC Prep by the time they graduate high school. If not provided by the high school, students must provide their own transportation to the Bergen Community College campus.
