Undergraduate Admissions

Jefferson College of Health Sciences offers Early Action (EA) and Regular Decision (RD) admission plans. The EA plan is non-binding to students meaning that they are not required to withdraw applications from other institutions and attend Jefferson College if admitted. Rather, students admitted through EA will have until May 1 to submit a reservation deposit provided that space remains in the program to which they have been admitted. Jefferson College programs are competitive, and students are encouraged to apply early and submit deposits as soon as they are comfortable doing so to secure a place in their desired program. Regular Decision is available for any student who wishes to apply.

The application, notification and deposit deadlines are listed below:

Early Action                   
Application Deadline: November 15
Notification Date: no later than December 31
Note: Applicants who do not receive an offer of admission through EA will automatically be considered in the regular decision pool and will receive counseling regarding how to improve their chances for admission in the Regular Decision pool.

Regular Decision
Application Deadline: February 1
Notification Date: no later than March 1

Rolling Admission
Applications will be received on a rolling basis after February 1.
Notifications will be made no later than March 1.
Applicants will be reviewed and decisions will be made on a space-available basis. If an applicant’s desired program is full, we will work with the applicant to determine if we can create a path into their preferred  program, but we cannot ensure all programs will have space available for a given year.

Deposit Deadline: May 1
Because many of the programs offered by Jefferson College have firm capacity constraints imposed by accreditation agencies, admitted applicants are encouraged to submit reservations deposits as early as possible to secure a place in their preferred program.

Reservation Deposits are refundable until May 1. Past May 1 deposit refunds are not available.

Jefferson College of Health Sciences admits to programs, and space within each program is limited. Applications and all supporting documents should be received as soon as possible. The Accelerated Pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, and the Physical Therapist Assistant programs use their own admissions calendars, and students who are interested in these programs should refer to the Additional Program Specific Admissions Requirements section below.

The Occupational Therapy Assistant Program is still accepting applications for the Fall 2018 cohort. Applications may be considered on a space available basis.
