View 2021 Summer Schedule

Newman University welcomes qualified (minimum 3.0 GPA) high school and home school juniors and seniors to take classes online or on campus this summer!

All prerequisites and other enrollment restrictions apply. Math and English placement tests may be required.  High school students coming on campus may not enroll in any courses that are already offered in their high school, unless they are retaking the course to improve their grade or will not take the course at all in high school.  The Advanced Standing courses online through Newman cost the same as they do when taking the courses in the high schools ($75/credit hour), however, the student is also responsible for all necessary books, lab and/or class fees.

To enroll in the online summer courses, students will simply follow the same process that they do when enrolling online for advanced standing high school courses.

Common enrollment questions

Please note when enrolling, it will look like the system will charge you additional fees that don’t make sense.  If you pay with a credit card, simply enter the amount that you are supposed to pay for the course (if the course has a lab fee, you can add that in with the course fee as well), not what the amount posted says.  Once the charge goes through, student accounts will adjust your account to reflect the advanced standing price.  If you would rather not pay online, you can click alternate payment after you enroll.  Your enrollment is suspended until the registrar puts it through (usually a few hours).  Then, once you get a confirmation email from her,  you can call student accounts and pay for the course over the phone. Their number is 942-4291 ext. 2168.

Online Courses

Online summer courses are delivered to students through Canvas. The link to get onto canvas is sent through your Newman email. Once you have enrolled, please be sure to set up your Newman email.

Program Details

After a student has been enrolled for the first time, Newman will create a Newman ID card for each student and sends them to the counseling office of each school. These are usually created after all schools are enrolled. The Newman ID card has several benefits:

  • Students can attend athletic and fine arts events at Newman for free
  • High school students have access to the Dugan Library.
  • Free tutoring is available to them for Advanced Standing classes
  • Community discounts are sometimes given for college students by presenting your ID card.

Courses typically transfer from Newman to other accredited colleges. To find out how they will transfer, you can go to the website of your intended college and search transfer equivalencies. You will need the Newman course number. If you can’t find anything, you may need to contact the registrar’s office of the college that you plan to attend and have them look it up for you. Typically Ivy League schools do not accept dual credits.

The Jetstream portal is an online academic portal where students can check grades, pull unofficial transcripts and make online payment plan payments. After a student enrolls, an email will be sent to whatever email entered when the account was created that gives the student their Newman ID number and directions on how to access their Jetstream portal.

Logging in for the first time

As a Newman student, you are assigned a unique login ID:

Your Username: Last Name + 6-digit Student ID*

Password: Birthdate MMDD + Last 4 of your SSN OR Last 4 of Student ID if your SSN is not in

our system

Example: Joanna Smith has a Student ID of 123456, her birthday is September 5, 1992 and her

social security number is 553-23-5431:

Username: smith123456

Password: 09055431

Note, the last name in a username is limited to 14 characters. If a student’s last name results in a username of 15 or more characters, the last name will be truncated.

For example, if Joanna Smith’s last name changes to Smith-Hammerstein, her new username would be

smithhammerste123456.

You can order your transcripts through Clearinghouse. A small fee is required.

  • At large universities, it is often difficult to get enrolled in prerequisite classes because they are in such high demand.
  • By enrolling in the Advanced Standing courses at your high school, you will get personal instruction from your high school teacher with a small instructor/student ratio. As a result, your chances of success are far greater.
  • You will be considered an official Newman University Jet while attending high school!
  • You will receive a Newman ID card which allows you into on-campus events such as NCAA Division II athletics games, theatre productions, fine art galleries and much more!
  • Additional academic assistance is available at no charge through our peer tutoring program and e-coaching for writing is available to all advanced standing students.
  • The Dugan Library is available to you. You will have access to library resources as well as study rooms. The new Advanced Standing lib.guide is also a great academic resource for upcoming projects/papers.
  • Plus, Advanced Standing students who enroll at Newman after high school will be given a one-time credit toward their first-semester bill at Newman totaling the amount paid for all Newman advanced standing courses prior to high school graduation.

Taking Advanced Standing Courses on Campus

Newman University welcomes qualified (minimum 3.0 GPA) high school and home school juniors and seniors to take classes on campus on a space available basis. This means that we allow full time students to enroll first, and if the course doesn't fill, the Advanced Standing student will be notified a few days before the first class that there is space available, and the enrollment will be processed at that time.

All prerequisites and other enrollment restrictions apply. Math and English placement tests may be required.  High school students coming on campus may not enroll in any courses that are already offered in their high school.  The Advanced Standing cost is the same on campus as in the high schools, however, the student is also responsible for all necessary books, lab and/or class fees (Applied music classes are not included in this program).

Available courses can be accessed on the website by clicking on current students, then, under Student Quick Links, click on course schedule; click the interactive course schedule and then click on the correct term in the dropdown box; click search.  Advanced Standing students are allowed to enroll in up to two freshman level courses per semester at the  $75/credit hour cost.   

To enroll in an on campus course, students must complete the appropriate enrollment form and pay any fees and get books before class begins.

Textbooks and Course Materials: If taking courses on campus, you may be required to purchase textbooks/materials for the course(s) you choose.

Information about any required textbooks or other course materials is available from the Bookstore online here: https://bookstore.mbsdirect.net/vbm/newmanu.htm. You can contact our Bookstore (316-942-4291 ext. 2102) for information about purchasing or renting the textbooks for the duration of the course.

Dual credit courses base their grade on all coursework done in the classroom.  Tests, quizzes, homework, participation. Students are graded on all of this and there is a guaranteed grade on a college transcript.

AP tests are tests given at the end of the year by college board.  These test allow students to test out of the class in college.  Most colleges will accept theses tests, but might set a standard for the score.  For example, K-State might require students to get at least a 3 before they will accept the credit, and Ivy League schools might only take the credit if you get a 5.  If you are a good test taker, this might be a good option for you, but if you would rather not have college credit based on one test, then you might consider signing up for dual credit instead.
