Follow the steps below to find out about admission requirements, costs, and financial assistance.


Step 1: Ask good questions 
There's a time to explore your options and see what different schools have to offer. Because each school has its own personality, not every school is right for every student. Learning as much as you can about the schools you're considering is a smart way to begin.


  • Find out what the college or university stands for, what it believes in, and what it will teach you. Take a look at Jacksonville College's Mission Statement.

  • Be sure the college or university is regionally accredited. That means the credits you earn there will be accepted by other colleges and universities if you transfer or apply for graduate school and by employers if you want a job that requires professional certification or licensure in fields such as education and medicine. Jacksonville College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) - the toughest regional accrediting agency in the United States.

  • Know what the requirements are for admission and know if you qualify. Take a look at Jacksonville College's admission requirements.

  • Know what it will cost and what kind/how much financial assistance you are eligible to receive. Jacksonville College is ranked as one of the most affordable, private, two-year colleges in the United States (National Center for Education Statistics). Take a look at Jacksonville College's cost of attendance and available scholarships.

Step 2: Schedule a personalized campus tour

Because we know that visiting a college campus is one of the very best ways to find out if a particular school is a good fit for you, we invite interested students and their parents to come and see who we are.
