What is the application deadline?2022-06-17T16:13:47-04:00

We offer a rolling admissions process, and with multiple start dates per year in each program, it’s never too late to apply! Applications are reviewed once we receive all required application materials.

Can I receive financial aid?2022-06-17T16:16:10-04:00

Yes! The college offers federal financial aid for eligible students who are enrolled in online degree programs. Funding is available through the Federal Stafford Loan, and undergraduate students may be eligible for funds through the Federal Pell Grant as well. Financial aid is not available for certificate programs or continuing education courses.


How does online learning work?2019-08-12T14:33:54-04:00

Our courses are delivered via a learning portal, Brightspace. They operate in an asynchronous format, meaning you will have set due dates for assignments in your courses, but are not required to be logged on at a particular time.*  You can complete the coursework at times that are convenient for your schedule with the established due dates. Online students engage with their instructor and classmates through discussion boards and individual feedback from the instructor.

*Courses in the Master of Health Administration program include one live REEL session per week. A day and time that works for students is determined by the instructor each term.

Is the GRE or GMAT required for graduate programs?2019-08-12T14:32:03-04:00

No, we do not require any admissions testing for our graduate programs.

When do classes start?2022-06-17T16:20:40-04:00

The majority of our programs offer five 10-week terms per year. For the 2022-2023 academic year, our 10-week terms will begin in August, October, January, March, and May. Our Nursing and Graduate Theology programs offer four 12-week terms per year beginning in July, October, January and April.

What about SAT scores or high school transcripts?2022-06-17T16:18:48-04:00

No test scores are required when applying to SJC. High school transcripts are only required for students who have not taken college classes before at an accredited college or university.
