Jefferson College has a great faculty! Most of the professors are available if you need to seek additional help with a class. There are a variety of resources available to help us as students get through classes; for example, we have a learning and writing center which helps students review their paper and give input on their writing, or help with the use of APA format. Students are very personable and the student to teacher ratio is marvelous. I love small classes whereas at different colleges the student to teacher ration is for say 1:400.

I was a student at Jefferson College of Health Sciences for 4 years, receiving my Associate of Applied Sciences Degree with a focus in Occupational Therapy. I have been a COTA/L for 10+ years and I am so happy with my decision to pursue a degree from Jefferson. The instructors very very knowledgeable, they offered the one-on-one assistance that we individually needed, along with assistance for group study. I felt comfortable with my instructors and felt at ease in my classes, with detailed instruction and opportunities to excel along the way. My career is one that I am very happy with and I still keep in contact with my instructors as I now take students from this College and they send their students to the facility I am employed with to progress their student's knowledge.
My experience at JCHS has been great! The Respiratory Therapy program is outstanding. It provides not only excellent academic instruction but provides opportunities to experience practical clinical opportunities in the hospital.
The faculty and administration is very supportive. The College wants you to succeed and exceed and they do everything they can to ensure that happens.
