Early College High School Admissions


Jackson Public Schools established the JPS-Tougaloo Early College High School (JTECHS) Program in partnership with Tougaloo College with the inaugural class beginning in August of 2018. The program operates as a small, independent program on the Tougaloo College campus. Students in the program complete Mississippi graduation requirements for high school while working on college coursework. Students may earn an associate's degree or up to two years of credits towards a bachelor's degree.

Each fall, incoming ninth-grade students are enrolled in the program and upperclassman continue their advanced coursework. To be considered, students must submit an application, fulfill admission criteria, and participate in an interview process. Final selection for admission is conducted by an external agency.

Once enrolled in the program, students must maintain a 3.0, exhibit good attendance, and display excellent citizenship.

Graduate Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Tougaloo College! The application should be filled out carefully and completely. Show “N/A” (not applicable) when appropriate. If the application is submitted with essential information that is missing, processing will be delayed until such information is received. An applicant applying to the Graduate Program may require an interview. Domestic applicants are recommended to submit their application 30 days before the department/program deadline. International applicants should apply at least 60 days in advance.
Fall Deadline: June 1
Spring Deadline: October 1
Summer Deadline: April 1
Any applicant who holds a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university and has earned a 3.0 cumulative grade point
average may apply for admission to the Graduate Program. Although the Graduate Program coordinates the admission process and establishes minimum requirements for admission, additional requirements vary by degree program. Satisfying minimal standards does not guarantee admission into the Graduate Program.
