To participate in the program, students must have a 3.0 GPA or higher and anticipate at least sophomore status at the beginning of the program. Students considering post-baccalaureate education (whether seminary, graduate school, law, medicine, etc.) are especially encouraged to apply; however all applicants are considered equally. Accepted students receive a $1,000 tuition scholarship. For more information, email jafgordon.edu or call 978.867.4227.
The program offers up to 12 hours of course credit, including 8 credits towards common course core requirements in Historical Perspectives and The Examined Life, and 8 credits towards thematic core requirements in Civic Responsibility and The Human Person.
Additional credits in one's major may be available at the discretion of individual departments. Costs for retreats, cultural activities, a periodical subscription, and some reading materials are covered by the program. Students admitted are also eligible—space permitting—to participate in the Gordon in Orvieto program upon completion of the JAF program.
