  • A designated partner school representative must recommend the student for admission
  • The students must have earned at least a 2.7 cumulative GPA
  • The students must have earned at least a C in all prerequisite coursework
  • Where TOEFL is mandated, a minimum score of 87 (Internet-based) is required
  • Accepted students must submit the results of a criminal background check and child abuse clearance prior to matriculation

Articulated Curriculum Agreements (ACA)

Articulated curriculum agreements allow students to plan a seamless transition into upper division graduate programs at Jefferson while still in high school or during the freshman year in college.

  • Students apply for admission just once using the partner school application. A joint Jefferson/partner school admissions committee will conduct an interview and decide on acceptable candidates.
  • Students take a specified curriculum at the partner school and maintain a required GPA.
  • Students earn a bachelor's degree from the partner school and a graduate degree from Jefferson.

Articulated agreements are available for the following programs:
