As part of the Jefferson 2 Bellarmine partnership, Bellarmine is offering Jefferson students a total tuition rate of $15,600 per year, inclusive of fees. Students are able to access all campus amenities, programs, and events, and have the ability to live on campus for an additional cost.

To kick off this exciting partnership, two full scholarships will be awarded to two 2BU students — one in Fall 2020 and one in Spring 2021.
