Jefferson College will host two Showcase and Registration events in April as a way for prospective and current students, along with family and friends, to learn more about the College’s numerous academic programs and support services by visiting one-on-one with faculty and staff.
Individuals may attend either Showcase and Registration event:
Thursday, April 6, at Jefferson College Arnold (1687 Missouri State Road) or
Thursday, April 20, at the Hillsboro campus (1000 Viking Drive)
Each event will last from 3-8 p.m. and attendees may stop by at any time. There is no cost to attend and reservations are not required.
Aside from talking directly with academic personnel about specific programs, attendees will also have the opportunity to tour labs and teaching spaces, explore campus
housing (Hillsboro campus), and learn about student clubs and campus activities. Attendees can also submit a free admission application, complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), learn about A+ scholarship updates, and register for classes with an advisor.
Those who wish to enroll for intersession, summer, or fall classes are required to bring a photo ID and show placement test scores (within the last two years) prior to the registration process.
Intersession classes begin on May 15, summer classes begin on June 5, and fall classes begin on August 21. Among the available class formats and options are day, evening, hybrid (on site/online), One Night Plus, and 3, 4, 6, 8, and 16-week formats.
Jefferson College tuition in-district costs are $97 for intersession/summer and $105 per credit hour for fall. A $5 per credit hour technology fee
is also applicable for all terms. Some courses may have additional lab fees and some programs such as Practical Nursing and the Law Enforcement Academy have separate fee structures.
According to data from the U.S. Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, Jefferson College’s current in-district average tuition and fees for a full-time undergraduate student are under $3,400 (including books) per year and are significantly less than the average for Missouri public universities ($7,594 without books), Missouri private for profit universities (average of $15,791 without books), and Missouri private not for profit universities (average of $19,952).
