Programs & Services



Enjoy the freedom to study when and where you wish – at the office, at the library, at home, or outdoors on a pretty day.

Because students are not required to attend campus, S.J.U. Certificate and Degree programs are affordable. New students also benefit from Open Enrollment, which enables newly enrolled students to register and begin their first semester as soon as they are admitted. This enables students to begin their studies right away and not have to wait for the next semester to begin.

Once enrolled, students may take advantage of the spring, summer and fall Fast Track policy which enables students to smoothly move from semester to semester without disruption. This enables students to plan their programs more efficiently and often may graduate more quickly.

S.J.U. students also enjoy the convenience within the semester of completing courses in a self-paced manner. Since courses consist of text books and DVDs, student have many options of how they want to proceed with a course. Students e-mail course assignments and projects to their Instructors as they benefit from the mentorship afforded in a one-on-relationship with each Instructor. Instructors are accessible to their students by e-mail, Skype and by phone.
