JSU's IVC Course Offerings at JSCC's St. Clair Center

Jacksonville State University, in partnership with Jefferson State Community College, will be offering undergraduate and graduate courses in Educational Leadership and Business at Jefferson States new St. Clair Center in Pell City beginning in January 2007.

We look forward to the close working relationship between the two campuses as we utilize state of the art technology, said Dr. Franklin King, associate vice president for Distance Education atJacksonville State University.
