Filling the Education GapInitial Programs Launching in Palm Coast

Jacksonville University is excited to partner with the City of Palm Coast to bring our award-winning healthcare education programs to the region and establish our very first campus beyond the Jacksonville area. Together with our main campus, the Palm Coast campus in the city’s Town Center will be an important first step in what we expect will become a JU education corridor delivering quality educational programming and innovative workforce development throughout Northeast Florida and beyond.

Our Palm Coast campus will offer several highly acclaimed JU programs including:

Future programs are expected to include an accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing and specialized graduate nurse practitioner programs.

The addition of our Palm Coast campus is pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. This is a normal step for any university that adds new locations or programs. We anticipate receiving approval prior to the fall semester.
