University description (as per official university website)

Historical Background

Moved by the need for a college in East Texas, a group of earnest Baptists met in Palestine, Texas, March, 1899. They formed a permanent organization known as, "The East Texas Educational Society." The following officers were elected: A. W. Ewing, president; D. L. Scarborough and R. B. Longmire, vice presidents; C. A. Lawler, secretary; and W. J. Foscue, treas­urer. They realized East Texas must educate its youth if it rose to the heights of its possibilities. With this in mind they proceeded in their plans to establish an institution which would provide academic and cultural training under religious influence. Jacksonville became their choice for the location of the college.

The East Texas Educational Society applied for a charter for Jack­sonville College on June 10, 1899. The procedure was executed by A.P. Schofield, W. J. Foscue, R.B. Longmire and J. M. Newburn, then acting in the capacity of a corporation.

The charter was approved and signed by the Secretary of State of Texas, July 26, 1899, and was renewed in 1957.

On July 20, 1899, a building site consisting of 18 acres was bought for Jacksonville College. The trustees gave a contract for a three-story brick building in May, 1899. This building was not completed for the opening session of 1899-1900. The upper story of the Templeton building on South Bolton Street was rented and school opened in September with an enroll­ment of 34 students and before the end of the opening session, the enroll­ment increased to 85 students. Before the Christmas holidays the three- story brick building was completed and classes were moved to that location. Since that date all activities of the college have been at the present site.


Admission policies are administered by the Academic Dean’s Office, including the Admissions Office and Financial Aid Office as supervised units. All prospective students are subject to the admission requirements and procedures.

Upon admission to Jacksonville College, the student has agreed that all information contained in the applications for admission are correct and complete and that the college has permission to verify the information. If any information is found to be inaccurate or incomplete, it will be sufficient cause for rejection of admission or dismissal. The student understands that, as a Christian institution, the college places emphasis upon high standards of personal conduct by all students. The student agrees to abide by the rules and regulations as set forth in this catalog, the student handbook, and by the administration of the college. The student certifies that the meeting of the degree requirements for graduation from Jacksonville College is his or her responsibility and not that of the college. The student also certifies that the college will not be held liable for his or her ability to meet the admission or degree requirements of another institution to which the student may trans­fer.


The student enrollment at Jacksonville College was 264 in 2007 (222 full-time equivalent).
Undergrads are 100% of enrolled students.
Students living in the US make up 100% of incoming freshmen.

Financial Aid Information

Attending college is an exciting time! Paying for it is not. Our Financial Aid staff is dedicated to helping you afford a Jacksonville College education. More than 95 percent of our students receive some kind of financial aid and we try to provide financial assistance to students who would otherwise not be able to attend.

Jacksonville College offers two basic types of aid to assist students in meeting the financial demands of college attendance. Gift aid or scholarships are provided by the college to pay for a portion of the educational expenses of the student. Governmental financial aid includes federal/state grants and work-study. Neither scholarships or grants have to be repaid. Don't let the cost of your education keep you from attending Jacksonville College. Contact us - we can help. Additional information on financial assistance can be found in the Jacksonville College Financial Aid Policies and Procedures Manual located in the Library, Financial Aid Office and Admissions Office.
