At USJ, we pride ourselves on providing students with the individual education experience they deserve, allowing them to tailor their academic programs to their interests.
Our Admissions staff is happy to work with you and any of your students who are interested in attending our University. Contact an admission counselor to find out more.
Scholarships for full-time, first-year students who qualify academically are awarded at the time of admission and range from $5,000 to $21,000 per year based on high school GPA and SAT/ACT scores. Unique scholarship opportunities may be found here.
When reviewing files for admission, we will look at the core academic classes, as well as the overall GPA, including the level classes. For merit-based scholarship money, we use the GPA indicated on the high school transcript.
Admission to USJ is based on a rolling admissions system, which means an offer of admission can be made shortly after the completed application is received. Priority deadline for Nursing program applications is February 15, but applications are accepted throughout the year until available spots are filled.
Yes, and we are a member of the National Collegiate Honors Council. Students are invited into the program based on academic merit and personal integrity, and should be taking AP and Honors courses, have at least a 3.5 GPA and an 1150 SAT (Critical Reading and Math). The mission of the program is to provide a value-centered education to highly talented and motivated young women. Learn more about our Honors Program online.
USJ prides itself on encouraging young women to reach their full, academic potential through its commitment to the development of women leaders in every academic discipline … but this does not stop our students from socializing! In addition to being located near several other colleges, we also participate in the Hartford Consortium for Higher Education, allowing our students to cross-enroll at our neighboring colleges for USJ tuition. This allows our students to get the best of both worlds.
