The full program of the Neve School of General Jewish Studies is one academic year divided into a fall and spring semester. Shorter stays are also permitted (a minimum of 3 week stays) with the consent of the Chairman of the school.
An five-week Summer Semester is also available, as well as a two-week Summer Retreat.
Classes meet throughout the day. Each class is in session for a full 60 minutes. Each student has the opportunity to spend between one to three hours a day in a tutorial preparing for her classes and learning subjects not covered in her class. Those on the highest levels can do the preparation individually or jointly with a classmate. In addition, the schedule is designed to allow for ample leisure and relaxation time.
A tutor is assigned to help each student develop independent study skills in understanding Hebrew texts, review classroom work, and pursue a subject of her choice. One to three hours of tutorials are available each school day.
Transfer Credits and Transcripts
Many colleges and universities accept the credits of the Neve School of General Jewish Studies. It is recommended, however, that the student consult the registrar of the home college she is attending, or plans to attend, to ascertain the college's policy. Upon request, a transcript for courses successfully completed at Neve will be issued. The fee for each transcript is $10.00 USD and can be paid by credit card. Note that it takes approximately a month to process a transcript once the request is received. Students must study a minimum of four weeks in order to be eligible for credits.
