Create a New Account

Applicants can access the application by clicking on the “Apply Now” button on this page. Applicants will first click “Create an account” to begin the pre-college application process and complete the required information. Applicants will be sent a PIN to set up an account to start the application.

Enroll in Classes

Courses are listed on the application but can also be found on our Courses Page. Applicants will then be given the opportunity to upload their required supplements (essay, letter of recommendation etc.) after completing the online portion of the application. Be sure to complete all tabs of the application and click the “Submit Application” button at the end.

Confirmation

Once an applicant submits the main application online, they will receive a confirmation email from summer@tcnj.edu. We will then follow up with an email with missing required supplemental documents that will need to be uploaded through the newly created account to the online application. Once an application is fully complete (including the additional documents noted below) a confirmation will be sent to the applicant’s email address and we will start reviewing that application. Applications will be accepted until the program is full. We will expect the programs to fill by June 2019.
