About TJU

With several research centers, an extensive health system and nearly 200 years of history, Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) is one of the premier medical schools in the United States. The university divides its academics and research into six schools and colleges:

  • College of Graduate Studies
  • Medical College
  • School of Health Professions
  • School of Nursing
  • School of Pharmacy
  • School of Population Health

These academic divisions provide support for every area of study in health and medicine, from Biomedical Science to Public Health. Graduate certificates, master’s degrees and doctoral degrees are available, and the School of Nursing offers many baccalaureate programs, as well.

Because of the wide range of programs available, admissions procedures vary at Thomas Jefferson University. For example, in the College of Graduate Studies, the deadline for PhD applications is January 5, while applications for the MS program are accepted throughout the year.

Similarly, each TJU school has its own FAFSA code, so make sure to use the right one when you apply for financial aid. Though opportunities vary by program, all TJU schools offer a combination of state, federal, and institutional grants, scholarships and fellowships to help you manage the cost of tuition for your program.
