The New Options program assists adult students who are interested in starting or returning to college at Jefferson State! We provide support through individualized success coaching, textbook loans, connection to resources, and partial tuition scholarships. Students can pursue any Jefferson State program (credit or non-credit). 

You are eligible if you meet one of the following criteria:  

  • Married, or have been married
  • Have dependent children
  • Earned a GED
  • Over the age of 24

Please fill out the program application under ‘Getting Started’ and participate in a Welcome Seminar. If there are not any scheduled Seminars, we will meet with you individually to fulfill this requirement.

You must be an active participant in the program to be eligible for book loans and scholarships. Scholarship awards are based on need and availability of funds.

The scholarship deadline for Fall 2023 has passed.

The deadline for Spring 2024 is Thursday, November 16, 2023.  


We are here to talk with you to see how we can help!
