Jacksonville College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). The College is accredited to award an Associate in Arts degree, an Associate in Science degree, and a Junior College Diploma.

The values of accreditation are numerous. One advantage is that any student who takes a course at Jacksonville College can transfer that course to other accredited colleges. Accreditation also ensures that the College maintains vigilance in what it claims to provide. This institutional effectiveness at Jacksonville College involves a systematic review of all areas of campus activity in light of the mission of the College. The Board of Trustees, administration, faculty, and staff are devoted to ongoing assessment with the intent to continuously improve the educational services rendered to the students of Jacksonville College.

The assessment process revolves around the following questions:

  1. Is Jacksonville College operating within the scope of its mission?

  2. Is Jacksonville College accomplishing what it intended to accomplish?

  3. What can Jacksonville College do to improve the quality of education received by its students?

  4. Have efforts to improve the College brought about successful changes within the institution?

The Jacksonville College community of students, faculty, administration, trustees, alumni, churches, associations, BMA, and SBTC all work together to ensure that Jacksonville College provides a quality education from a biblical worldview.

Golf Equipment Request


Jacksonville College Golf Coach

This year is going to be a great year for Jaguar golf. We have 12 men and 1 woman to represent Jacksonville College, and they are not only great golfers but also wonderful Christians. We do, however, need a couple of items that would really help the team have a great year.

The needed items are as follows:

  1. A 10-foot cargo trailer—With 13 golfers, we can still use our vans, the most economical way to travel, but we need this trailer to carry our golf clubs.

  2. A used golf cart—This donation would be of great value as it is impossible for a coach to walk with all the golfers, and I do try to keep up with team members while they are practicing.

Of course, any donations will be tax deductible for you.

Praise the Lord for your support and prayers as we begin this great year of golf.
