2019 Commencement Feedback Survey
Parents of high school-age students who want to learn more about Jefferson College programs, costs, transfer options, and more are invited to attend Parent Information Night on Wednesday, May 29, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Student Center Viking Room on the Hillsboro campus (1000 Viking Drive).
The event is free as a resource to all area parents with no cost to attend. Parents may pre-register at www.jeffco.edu/Parent-Night.
Jefferson College representatives will share information about:
Ron Scaggs of Festus, retired Law Enforcement Coordinator with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in St. Louis, is a recipient of the U.S. Department of Justice Lifetime Achievement Award for his distinguished career and numerous years of service to our country.
“This award is a small token of the United States Attorney’s Office’s appreciation for Ron’s many years of hard work and loyalty,” said Jeff Jensen, U.S. Attorney-Eastern District of Missouri.
Taking precautions to ensure the continued safety of all students, faculty/staff, and campus visitors, the indoor pool/Natatorium in the Field House will be closed this summer in connection with a series of issues that have been identified by a structural engineering firm. Specific areas of concern include significant deterioration of the pool deck and structural support of the pool walls.
The pool will close on May 9, following the conclusion of current classes and open swim. All previously scheduled pool-related offerings after this date are cancelled. No activities or classes will be held in the pool over the summer.
After years of in-depth preparation and a thorough on-site visit, the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) has reaffirmed the College's accreditation for another 10-year period with no focused visits or additional monitoring reports.
Sanction free accreditation is important because it is an indication of academic and institutional strength. Jefferson College is thankful to the Commission for their efforts to make certain that the College’s academic programs, services, and operations remain strong.
