Program for Advanced Scholastic Standing (PASS)

The Fundamentals of Video Production

Rider University will award 3 college credits to high school students who apply for the program, and have successfully completed with a grade of a B or better pre-approved video production courses at their high school.

PASS is a great way for high school students to get a jump on college by earning college credits while in high school. And better still, those college credits will only cost $100.

How to get started: Check with your TV/Video Production teacher or guidance counselor to see if your school participates in PASS, and to find out which courses you need to take to receive college credit.

The Program for Advanced Scholastic Standing is aimed at allowing high school students to earn college credit by successfully completing carefully selected courses taught in the high schools by high school faculty. Rider University would award college credit for an appropriate basic Rider course if and only if learning experiences at the high school level of instruction duplicate those at Rider. Other colleges and universities will transfer PASS credits according to their own transfer policies.
