The immersed interface method is modified to compute Schrodinger equation with discontinuous potential. By building the jump conditions of the solution into the finite difference approximation near the interface, this method can give at least second order convergence rate for the numerical solution on uniform cartesian grids. The accuracy of this algorithm is tested via several numerical examples.AMS subject classifications: 35R05, 65M06, 81Q05
