At Jones College, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to further their education, which is why we are committed to making financial aid highly accessible to those who qualify. Our programs qualify for federal loans and grants, and we work hard to secure financial assistance if you meet the requirements.

The Information Technology curriculum combines a comprehensive series of computer programming courses such as Business Systems and Web Performance, with essential business and general education courses. You’ll learn real-world information systems practices and gain intangible knowledge needed for a successful future. You’ll also have the opportunity to choose from elective classes to tailor the program to your personal tastes and broaden your professional perspective.
