The Ramapo Indian Hills High School District has partnered with Syracuse University, Bergen Community College, and Fairleigh Dickinson University to offer students the opportunity to earn college credits in approved dual enrollment courses. The following is a listing of courses that are anticipated for dual enrollment during the 2016-2017 school year:
Dual Enrollment through Bergen Community College:
Drawing II, Graphics II, Culinary Gourmet / Real World Cooking, Child Development, Computer Science, French 4 H, Italian 4 H, Spanish 4 H, Environmental Science, Horticulture
Dual Enrollment through Fairleigh Dickinson University:
US History II FDU
Dual Enrollment through Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA):
Introduction to Creative Writing (WRT-114), Gender and Literary Texts (ETS-192), and Science Research 1 (URP-150)
Syracuse University Project Advance is a cooperative program that has been initiated between Syracuse University and Ramapo Indian Hills Regional High School District that allows high school students to enroll in Syracuse University courses. Our teachers are also adjunct SU instructors that teach these classes at Ramapo and Indian Hills, and they follow the curriculum and guidelines established by Syracuse University. The Project Advance program enables high school students to gauge their ability to do college work prior to full-time college study. Upon successful completion of a Syracuse University course, students are awarded SU transcripts that record credits earned. These credits are transferable to hundreds of colleges and universities nationwide. PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A PER-CREDIT TUITION CHARGE ASSOCIATED WITH SU COURSES, although this charge is significantly discounted and financial aid is available to eligible students. There is an array of courses designed for those students who are capable of doing college-level work while still in high school. Students who take the course, but not for college credit, will have their transcripts reflect a non-SUPA course title.
It is the expectation that all courses will be offered for dual enrollment with Syracuse University, Bergen Community College, and Fairleigh Dickinson University, with the exception of Graphics II. Graphics II is replaced with Digital Design II for the 2017-2018 school year, and is pending approval from Bergen Community College.
