2025 J-Term Courses

J-Term Courses

Each year, students and families will receive a J-Term course catalog that describes the vast array of potential opportunities our faculty members have developed. Students are able to either enroll in two 8-day J-Term courses or a single 16-day J-Term course. Some J-Term courses allow for students to earn course credit upon completion. Courses can occur in a variety of academic settings, both on NCSSM campus and off. In some cases they are far OFF campus ranging from states like Utah and New York to countries like Italy and Japan.

The Course Request form will be open for students September 27, 2024 - October 11, 2024Each student must request their first choice in J-Term course choices and five alternates. Students will be notified of their enrolled J-Term courses the second week of November. 

Students who are pursuing a travel J-Term course will be on a different timeline, as sponsors often select students in the spring or beginning of the year. If you have already been accepted to a J-Term travel course, your first choice must be your travel course, followed by five alternative options in case of course cancellation. If you are planning to participate in a travel J-Term but have not yet been accepted, you will need to complete the course request form as directed above.
