Our academic programs are challenging, but our admissions process isn't.


We know you're busy. That's why we try to make the admissions process as simple and pain-free as possible. Prior to enrollment, you'll have an admissions counselor who will guide you through the admission process and answer all of your questions. Once you're registered for classes, your academic advisor will work with you from your first class until the day you graduate.

The first step is to schedule an appointment to meet with your admissions counselor, who can provide you with a preliminary credit evaluation. Too busy or too far away to come to the office? We can visit with you by phone or e-mail, or we can meet you someplace that's convenient for you.

Returning to college can be intimidating, but we'll do what we can to make you comfortable and to answer all of your questions. Even if you don't think you currently qualify for the program, give us a call and let's talk about how to prepare you for admission.

Admissions Requirements

To be eligible for the JBU Degree Completion Program, you must have 60 or more hours of transferable college credit. Other admission requirements -- including age, work experience, grade point average and test scores -- vary by degree program. Check with your admissions counselor for additional requirements or look on the program website for detailed information about admission into your chosen program.

New students who were born on or after January 1, 1957, regardless of the number of hours enrolled, are required by Arkansas law to furnish proof of immunity against measles, mumps, and rubella. MMR vaccination may be confirmed by an immunization record from a doctor's office, health department, or school records. This requirement does not apply to students who are enrolled in online courses only. For more information, please contact your admissions counselor.
