Why JFKU

FlexCourse℠ On-Demand Online Classes

In addition to our on-campus and traditional online model, our newest learning format allows students to work wherever—and whenever—they want. Courses are taken one at a time and sequentially for their degree program. Students may complete courses as quickly as they are able, supporting a shortened (and less expensive) path to a degree.

The Funding You Need

Several types of financial assistance are available to students in the form of grants, loans, and scholarships to bridge the gap between educational expenses and personal financial resources. 85% of John F. Kennedy University students receive financial aid or scholarships.

Kennedy University prepares students for success by ensuring their participation in impactful learning experiences connected to service, through internships, externships, clinical experience, fieldwork, and practicums embedded in many degree programs.
