|College Partnerships and Affiliations
Thomas Jefferson University is affiliated with a number of colleges, universities and community colleges in an effort to increase access to higher education in nursing and the health professions. These partnerships, including general agreements (GA) (2+2 and other degree completion programs) and articulated curriculum agreements (ACA), provide students with a wide array of college choices as they complete their prerequisite coursework.

2+2, 3+1, 3+2 Pathways
