ARE THE PROGRAMS RESIDENT, ONLINE, OR HYBRID?

All degree programs except for the BS in Radiologic Science utilize the blended learning environment (hybrid). Certificate programs and the BS in Radiologic Science are 100% distance education. The proton therapy certificate and medical imaging certificates include a clinical practice course consisting of 240 hours achieved in the clinical setting.

JPU’s hybrid learning environment allows students to receive all communication and course material and submit coursework through a web-based course management system.  Students are required to participate in live weekly discussions for their classes as well as on-site instruction (boot camp week) each semester.  If the student’s performance is not satisfactory and benchmarks for improvement are not met, the student may be required to attend as a resident. 

The clinical internship required for the program is to be served through a host site.  Students are expected to secure their own host sites.  JPU may be able to assist students in arranging host sites, but makes no guarantees.

HOW DOES THE HYBRID PROGRAM WORK?

3 Semesters are offered each year.
Each Semester has a boot camp (required on-site attendance).
Each course has live weekly discussions throughout the semester.
Boot camps are 3 days in duration and are held in South Bend, Indiana.
Boot camps are typically held in March, July, and November of each year.
