Admissions Process

At Jessup, we want to make the admissions process for our online degree programs as simple as possible. While the various online programs have individual admissions requirements, our general requirements are simple: Submit official copies of your high school and undergraduate transcripts, and if under 21 years of age, submit your SAT or ACT scores as well.

Transfer Students

If you have already completed some coursework at another college, you can easily transfer your credits. Those applying for an online undergraduate program can complete their bachelor’s degree in two years if they transfer 60 units and maintain a full workload. Per university policy, you can transfer up to 90 credit hours from another accredited institution for an undergraduate program.
