About Us

Jefferson College of Health Sciences is a professional health sciences college, offering 20 degree options on the graduate, bachelor and associate levels, as well as certificate and professional & continuing education programs.

With excellent licensure pass rates in our professional programs and high student satisfaction ratings, we are proud to be one of the few private healthcare colleges in the Southern region.

We enroll approximately 1,100 students on the undergraduate and graduate levels annually, and employ approximately 70 full-time faculty. The overall student-to-faculty ratio is 15:1, but this varies by program and by classroom/clinical setting.

We offer excellent clinical opportunities, extensive distance learning offerings, and continuing education and volunteer opportunities near campus and abroad.

Approximately 87 percent of our students receive some sort of financial aid. Academic merit scholarships and grants are also available from $1,000 to full tuition awards ranging from first year only to renewable for four years. Scholarships, loans, grants and Federal work study can be applied for through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We participate in the Carilion Clinic Tuition Advancement Program for our undergraduate and graduate critical need programs, as designated by Carilion Clinic. Students must be an employee of Carilion Clinic to apply for this benefit.
