FSCJ to Assist Virginia College Students in Continuing their Education

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - With the recent announcement of Virginia College closing its campuses across the country, including the campus in Jacksonville, Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) is offering specialized assistance to students looking to continue their education.

Now through January 15, 2019, FSCJ is waiving the $25 application fee for current Virginia College students or those who withdrew from Virginia College on or after December 1, 2018.

After applying to FSCJ, students should submit their official transcripts to the FSCJ Admissions Office for evaluation with consideration for Prior Learning Assessments, which may provide students the opportunity to receive credit for prior coursework taken or through experiential learning that is equal to college-level learning. These assessments will be done on an individual basis.

Once students have applied and submitted transcripts, they can work with the dedicated academic advisor specifically assigned to work with Virginia College students to ease the process of transferring to FSCJ.

“FSCJ understands the urgency of helping get these students enrolled back in classes without losing time or momentum,” said FSCJ Interim President Kevin Hyde. “Staying on track while completing your education is essential to the success of all students, especially those in this very unfortunate situation.”

For additional questions and information about transitioning from Virginia College to FSCJ, students should email welcome@fscj.edu or call the Virginia College Admissions Advisor at (904) 357-8917. Students can also visit any of the campus advising centers.
