Admission to Atlantic Cape is available to applicants who have graduated from a regionally accredited secondary or preparatory school, have a state General Equivalency Diploma (GED), or are 18 years of age or older. Non-high school graduates who are 18 years of age or older can earn a state-issued high school diploma through Atlantic Cape’s Project Second Chance, a program that allows students to complete college credits, and then apply for a state-issued high school diploma. Contact the Admissions Office for details.
Admission to the College does not mean that students can enroll in any course or program offered. Programs such as Air Traffic Control Terminal, Professional Pilot, Helicopter Pilot, Flight Instructor, Health Information Technology, Medical Laboratory Technology, Radiologic Technology and Nursing have additional admission criteria that must be completed before acceptance to those programs. In addition, many courses have prerequisite requirements that must be met prior to course entry.
