Open Admissions Policy | Print |


Any individual who is a graduate of an accredited high school or who has earned the Certificate of High School Equivalency (GED)* is eligible for regular admission to Jefferson College. Students who do not meet the criteria for regular admission may attend classes at Jefferson College as provisional students for a limited period of time while they meet their regular admission requirements. Admission to the College does not necessarily mean immediate entrance into a specific course or curriculum. Refer to www.jeffco.edu for detailed enrollment information.

First-time degree seeking students are required to complete the COMPASS (Computer-Adaptive Placement, Assessment, and Support System) test or submit an official ACT score prior to enrollment.

The Missouri Community College Association (MCCA) has followed the Department of Higher Education's guidelines in establishing college readiness standards for students entering community colleges. Students who do not have an ACT reading score or have a score below 18 are required to take the COMPASS reading placement test, which determines competency in reading. Students not meeting readiness standards for admission into certain courses or programs may be enrolled in developmental courses to help them qualify.

Contact the Testing Center or the Office of Admissions for the current dates and times the COMPASS test is offered.


*Beginning January 2014, Missouri's new high school equivalency test will be the HiSET test.
