If you value learning by doing, participating in activities, and growing into a better person while you’re at college, we want to meet you.
We try to make applying to UJ as easy as possible. Here’s how:
- Applying is FREE.
- The application should take no more than 15 minutes.
- You don’t need official transcripts to apply.
- No ACT or SAT? No problem. Our application is test optional.
(Sure, we could base your admission on how you did during the four most stressful hours of your life. But, we’d rather look at your transcripts and see what you’ve done for the past four years!)
Our only admission requirement is a GPA of 2.5 or higher upon completion of high school or your GED. But, we also know every student has a story. If you don’t meet this criterion—but believe UJ is the right place for you—you should still apply. Share your background, your plans for the future, and what makes you unique. And we’ll go from there!
Applications will be reviewed based on transcripts, chosen program of study, and a brief essay outlining your plans for success in college.

An admission decision will be made within a week of receiving your completed application and transcripts.
