SAINT JOSEPH’S UNIVERSITY NEW UNDERGRADUATE MERIT SCHOLARSHIPS

Saint Joseph’s University is implementing test-optional undergraduate admission and merit scholarships, effective for fall 2014 applicants. Test-optional means that the University will not require applicants to submit a standardized test score (SAT/ACT) in order to be considered for admission and some merit scholarships, if they do not believe the scores are an accurate indicator of their academic ability and potential for future academic success. Proof of English proficiency will still be required from countries where English is not the official language.
Traditional merit scholarships range from $2,500 to $16,000 per year. Full-tuition or special interest scholarships may still require SAT or ACT submission.

NORTHCENTRAL UNIVERSITY ADOPTS MODERNIZED VERSION OF THE OXFORD LEARNING MODEL

As one of the first graduate-focused online universities in the U.S., Northcentral University (NCU) has worked to make graduate education more accessible to students worldwide. They’ve gathered expert faculty from all over the world who have doctoral degrees, and pair one student with one of these faculty members in each course for a more personalized learning experience that students can apply to a career in their fields. Inspired by the Oxford Model of Instruction, this One-to-One Model at NCU uses technology to bring together motivated students and qualified faculty members to facilitate the transfer of knowledge. This technology includes a proprietary, web-based Learning Management System (LMS) for course delivery. Students can access the LMS from anywhere in the world, at any time of day, as long as they have an Internet connection. This LMS also allows students to interact with other students and faculty, and access learning tools such as the Course Room, where they submit weekly assignments, the NCU Research Library, and Writing Center.
