JACKSONVILLE (Christian Examiner) -- Jacksonville College has begun offering its first fully online associate degree program. Registration is underway with tuition rates reduced for the May 14-29 Maymester and both summer semesters.

"This approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools shows their faith in the educational degree we are providing our students," stated JC Academic Dean Lynn Nabi. Jacksonville College subscribes to the Texas Common Course Numbering System, and core course credits easily transfer to participating institutions.

Designed to benefit students who have difficulty commuting to the East Texas campus, Nabi said the degree allows them to attend virtual classes on their own schedules. Summer Pell Grants are available to students who qualify. Course schedules, new student application and class registration are available at Jacksonville-college.edu.

Jacksonville College is owned and operated by the Baptist Missionary Association of Texas and is affiliated with the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention.
