As we have for the last 99 years, Jones College takes its educational commitment to its students seriously and has worked diligently to ensure that the closing of Jones College was as smooth as possible for the students, faculty, staff and the community.

Jones College has also received continuous support and cooperation from the following local colleges and universities during our closing transition.
