Professional Development



NJACAC is active in providing professional development experiences for all members and those interested in the college admissions profession. An annual spring conference includes numerous workshops on topics of current interest. In addition, each year a series of workshops are offered at various campuses around the state. Finally, the association offers a summer workshop experience for those relatively new to the profession or those who may wish a refresher in the "Basics of College Admissions." NJACAC/NACAC is a registered provider with the N.J. Department of Education and all those who participate in workshops are eligible for certificates recognized by the NJDOE.

The NJACAC Professional Development Committee works to provide professional development programs for guidance and admission counselors.  Mini-Institutes are half day programs hosted by our NJ colleges, universities and high schools on important college admission topics.  Those in attendance will receive certification from NACAC/NJACAC as a Registered Provider with the New Jersey Department of Education.

We encourage our members to offer your school/campus as a workshop site.  Members may develop a session from our list of topics or perhaps develop your own.  This is a great way to help school counselors learn more about your institution.  The Professional Development Committee will advertise your  event on the NJACAC website and send emails to the general membership.

Feel free to contact us with your questions.

Professional development increases the effectiveness of our staffs and enhances the services we provide for students and their parents.  We invite you to provide an important learning opportunity for the members of NJACAC and the college counseling community.
