Pillar College understands that many New Jersey high school graduates will not go away to college this Fall due to COVID-19. 

To that end, Pillar College is offering an affordable opportunity called START HERE SEMESTER. 

"Your graduation events were trashed by COVID. Everyone feels so badly about that,” President of Pillar College, Dr. David E Schroeder said. “You deserved far better. And now maybe is not the best time to go off to your intended college or university. I have two grandchildren facing that dilemma. As a college president and grandfather, my advice is START HERE; don’t let COVID deprive or delay you of carpé diem -seizing today. Pillar’s START HERE SEMESTER is a great affordable way to get a head start toward your college degree.”

Students can stay in New Jersey, live at home, take 4 or 5 courses through distance learning or at one of the four campus locations Newark, Somerset, Paterson and Plainfield. 

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

Contact Pillar College today to take advantage of the Fall START HERE’ SEMESTER discounted tuition* and earn 12 or 15 transferrable credits in courses you will need, and Pillar College will help you transfer your Pillar College credits to the college of your choice.
