Applying for Admission:
High School (PACE) Students
Plan A College Education (PACE) is an advanced admission program for
high school students who are committed to a career in allied health or
nursing. PACE lets you apply for admission to Jefferson Schools during your senior year of high school. If you're accepted,
admission is guaranteed for your junior year in college provided you complete
all prerequisite courses and maintain the appropriate grade point average.
Jefferson Schools are primarily upper division, which means that you will begin studies
here during your junior year in college after completing prerequisite
coursework at another accredited college or university. We will keep in
touch with you during that time, check your progress toward your enrollment,
and invited you to workshops and programs in anticipation of your transfer
Jefferson maintains transfer agreements with selected two- and four-year
colleges. You are encouraged, but not required, to attend a school that
has a formal transfer agreement with Thomas Jefferson University. By
attending one of these institutions you can be assured that all courses
necessary for transfer are offered.
High school students may also apply for direct admission to our Associate
of Science in Nursing and our Associate of Science in Emergency Medical
