WHAT IS JUMP START?

The JumpStart program is a partnership between Broward County Public Schools and Broward College to offer enrollment assistance to high school seniors. Your Broward County public or charter high school will have a designated recruiter to help you with the application process. After applying to Broward College, your Student Success Coach will work with you through the enrollment process to begin your college education. The goal of the JumpStart program is for high school seniors to become Broward College students and begin classes after graduating from high school.
