Undergraduate Admissions

​​​At Jacksonville University, our focus is on you - the student.

What are you looking for in a university?

At Jacksonville, you’ll find a university that offers more than 100 majors, minors, and pre-professional programs in our four colleges of Arts & Sciences, Business, Fine Arts, and Health Sciences. You’ll find a rigorous Honors Program, study abroad opportunities, 19 NCAA Division I and intramural teams, and hands-on learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom.

We believe in the importance of hands-on learning.

You’ll also be successful when you receive your diploma. Students are required to complete one of the following by graduation: study abroad, undergraduate research, service learning project, or internship. This guarantees you will have experience in your field of study before entering the job market.

Our recipe for value:

  • 1 part core liberal arts infused with professional programs
  • 1 part experiential opportunities & cross-disciplinary learning
  • 1 part comprehensive career mentoring
