Student LifeWhat's it like to be a JIU student?
It's much like being in a traditional classroom, but in many respects more intimate. Many JIU graduates have said they felt closer to their classmates and teachers at JIU than they did in a classroom setting.
Through a blend of assigned readings, class discussion, faculty feedback, group projects, case studies, research, and writing assignments, you will be in continuous communication with your peers and faculty. And, with classes limited to 25 students, teachers get to know their students, and students get to know their teachers and each other.
About Jones International UniveristyGlenn R. Jones, chancellor of Jones International University, has devoted much of his life to his passionately held belief that education should be available to everyone, everywhere. The Jones companies have been working to further that goal since 1987, with the launch of Mind Extension University (ME/U ), a cable television network that enabled 30,000 students to take courses from over 30 colleges and universities via television.
In 1993, Mr. Jones founded JIU, the first university to exist entirely online. And, in 1999, JIU became the first fully online university to be accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, a member of the North Central Association (30 North La Salle Street, Suite 2400, Chicago, IL 60602; 312.263.0456), an accrediting body for institutions of higher education in the United States.
The majority of JIU's students are working adults, generally balancing both career and family at the time they decide to continue their educations. For many of these individuals, a campus-based institution is simply out of the question, between scheduling conflicts, business travel, and childcare issues. These are among the individuals for whom JIU was created.
Hallmarks of a JIU EducationFlexibility: Everything you need to earn a degree is online and accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All you need is a computer, access to the Internet, any standard web browser, and a desire to learn.
Quality: JIU's regional accreditation ensures that students receive an outstanding education and credits that are transferable to other accredited institutions.
Relevance: Adults learn best when what they study can be applied to what they do. Our students can take what they learn in the classroom and put it to use on their jobs immediately.
Faculty: JIU students learn from a world-class faculty from leading U.S. and international universities. Content experts from such prestigious institutions as the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, UCLA, and Carnegie Mellon University develop all of JIU's courses specifically for the Internet.
Financial AssistanceJIU makes every effort to make education an achievable goal for each student:
Federal Student Aid: Most JIU students who are U.S. citizens or eligible noncitizens admitted to a JIU degree program and attending at least half-time may be eligible to receive student loan assistance across the years of their academic programs.
SLM Financial Loan: Available to individuals who are U.S. citizens, U.S. national, or permanent residents who have demonstrated credit-worthiness. This program has fast approval processing and high acceptance rates. Funds are disbursed to you via JIU.
P.L.A.T.O. Loan: Available to individuals who are U.S. citizens, U.S. national, or permanent residents who have demonstrated credit-worthiness. Funds may be used for tuition, fees, books, or even a personal computer, and are disbursed directly to you.
VA Benefits: Veterans, active servicepersons, reservists, and dependents and survivors of veterans of U.S. Armed Forces may qualify for financial assistance.
Military: JIU offers a special program for military personnel. If you are a U.S. serviceperson, you may also qualify for the Military Tuition Assistance program.
