Welcome to St. Joseph's College! As you consider your academic options, we invite you to get acquainted with our community. If you want to lead a life of purpose, if you aspire to be part of something greater than yourself, if you strive to bring your best to the world—you will feel at home here from day one. St. Joseph’s seeks students with these perspectives, a solid academic record and a desire to contribute a variety of talents and interests to campus life.

Our liberal arts curriculum builds the requisite knowledge and skills for a career or graduate study. Our award-winning faculty provides individual attention, interactive instruction and thoughtful advising. You will be prepared for career success through work experience opportunities, field studies, hands-on projects, internships and—if you choose—study abroad.

The application process can be a daunting challenge, but our admissions staff aims to make your experience with us both pleasant and informative. We admit students on a rolling basis, with scholarship priority dates for freshmen and transfer students. Our website provides extensive information that will acquaint you with our academic programs, services and student activities.

There is no substitute for firsthand observation, of course, so we also suggest that you arrange for a campus visit. Just make an appointment, and our counselors will be happy to take you on a tour for your personal introduction to SJC.

We also welcome your calls and email messages at every stage of the application process and will gladly answer your questions. Once you decide to apply (good choice!), click here for an application.

We hope that you will choose St. Joseph's College to help you reach your personal and career goals. We look forward to meeting you!
