ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

 

Admission Checklist

 

The Admissions Office will communicate with you at every step to ensure you know what is needed. When your file is complete, you are ready to be advised and registered for class. The list below is a guide to the basic items needed.

 

After submitting a completed application for admission, follow the checklist to finish the admissions process. Students cannot enroll in classes until all required documents have been received and approved by the Admission's Office. Visit the Application for Admission page to apply if you not have already done so.

 

It is advisable to check with Admissions a few business days after submitting documents to verify they have been received. An incomplete application checklist can prolong admittance to Jacksonville College, so be sure to complete the application checklist in a timely manner so you may register for classes.

 

Admission to the college is dependent on evidence of sufficient academic preparation. Unofficial documents may be faxed, mailed, or scanned and emailed to the contact information listed to the left. Official documents must be mailed directly to Jacksonville College (ATTN: Admission) from the originating organization.

* Academic transcripts will be evaluated for possible transfer credit to Jacksonville College according to the following guidelines:

  • The course must have been taken for college credit and must represent content and level of instruction resulting in student competencies at least equivalent to those of students enrolled in Jacksonville College degree programs.

  • The course must relate to one of the College's academic credit curriculum areas; it must be relevant to the Associate Degree or the Junior College Diploma at Jacksonville College.

  • Only college credit course grades of "D" or higher will be accepted for credit, except for English and Mathematics where grades of "C" or higher will only be accepted.

  • The College sets no limit on the amount of hours that can be transferred in other than a maximum 15 semester hours of correspondence-type courses. However, all Jacksonville College graduation requirements are applicable to transfer-in credits.

 

After applying these criteria, all courses and grades evaluated, whether accepted for credit or not, will be shown on the Jacksonville College academic transcript. These courses will be included in calculation of the cumulative grade-point average. If a course has been repeated, it is considered only one time, using the higher grade, for grade-point average calculation and for total hours completed.

 

Once a transcript has been evaluated by the Academic Dean/Registrar, the transfer-in credit(s) can be viewed on the student's unofficial transcript on EMPOWER. If a student feels that a transcript was not properly evaluated based on the credit(s) shown or not shown on his/her Jacksonville College transcript, he/she may contact the Academic Dean/Registrar for reevaluation.

 

Transfer students with a low grade-point average may be subject to Scholastic Probation policies. See Academic Dean for details.

 

International students who are transferring from another U.S. institution to Jacksonville College must have completed at least one semester of work at the transfer institution and have permission of the transfer institution to relocate to Jacksonville College. Non-immigrant alien students who have an I-20 from Jacksonville College must enroll as full-time students (15 semester hours or more) and must maintain this status throughout a Fall or Spring semester. Part-time students at Jacksonville College for a Fall/Spring semester must be enrolled full-time at their parent institution and have the permission of the parent institution to attend part-time at Jacksonville College.
