Jefferson College Ready to Assist Displaced Vatterott College Students

2018-12-19T12:45:37+00:00 December 14th, 2018|Latest News|

Jefferson College Arnold MOWith the sudden closure of Vatterott College locations across the region and country, Jefferson College (with locations in Hillsboro, Arnold, Imperial, and online) is stepping forward to explore degree options and other avenues to help address the financial and academic burden facing Vatterott students.

Jefferson College will assist displaced Vatterott students on a one-on-one basis to develop personalized education plans in attempt to align their coursework with possible options such as credit for prior learning. Jefferson College encourages any displaced Vatterott student who is thinking about quitting college not to give up, but stay the course to complete their Associate Degree or Career and Technical Certificate. The College has a variety of student support systems in place (ranging from an Academic Support Center to peer tutoring and disability support to childcare services on the Hillsboro campus) to help students succeed in over 40 career and technical programs.

Enrollment for Spring 2019 courses is still available in a variety of classes starting in early January. Other Jefferson College pathways may be identified as a viable option for displaced Vatterott students seeking to continue their academic path. Because the tuition rate at Jefferson College is $106 per credit hour, displaced students can enter Jefferson College’s programs and pay a fraction of the cost that they had been paying at Vatterott.

Jefferson College academic and student services staff are working to establish alternative pathways for similar Vatterott programs, as current and prospective students explore higher education options beyond those available at Vatterott. Jefferson College’s academic leadership is working to review current options that minimize the loss of credit many Vatterott students now face.

Displaced students who have questions about academics or financial aid are invited to attend a Student Resource Fair at Jefferson College Arnold (1687 Missouri State Road) from 9 am – 6 pm on Thursday, December 20. Jefferson College Enrollment Services and Financial Aid staff as well as representatives from academic programs will be available to provide guidance and answer questions. There is no cost to attend. No appointment is necessary.

Any student impacted by the Vatterott closure is encouraged to call the Jefferson College Student Help Hotline at (636) 481-3209 or 797-3000, ext. 3209 (TDD 636-789-5772).
