The St. Augustine campus of St. Johns River State College is one of three campuses making up the institution that began in 1958 as part of the state’s junior college system.
SJR State offers associate in arts (transfer) degrees and more than 30 associate in science degrees and certificates in addition to bachelor’s degrees in early childhood education, organization management and nursing. It is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
SJR State has articulation agreements with local universities including the University of North Florida/SJR Gateway Program and the Blue-Gold Connection with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to provide seamless transitions into select bachelor degree programs.
“What makes SJR State a unique experience is that its mission is solely community focused. By centering on accessibility and affordability, we are positioned to answer a very wide range of needs from a very wide range of students, as well as from the local workforce,” said Susan Kessler, college spokeswoman. “Whether it’s by fine tuning a few business skills with a class or two or through one of our new bachelors degree programs, SJR State is preparing local students for local jobs.”
