Jump Start

A D'Youville grad looks up proudly with the rest of her classmates  at graduation.

A jump start on your classes. A head start for your career. And a free course for your semester. Begin classes on October 21.

At D'Youville, you'll find a supportive community dedicated to your success in and outside of the classroom. Regardless if you've attend school before or just weren't sure college was for you, we're confident you'll thrive here. That's why we created the Experience D'Youville scholarship — if you're ready to change your life, we'll cover the cost of your first course.

With the Jump Start program, you'll start courses mid-semester and by Spring you'll be on the same schedule as the rest of the undergraduate students on campus. The Jump Start courses are designed to allow you to pick up skills quickly and, regardless of your major, the courses will complete requirements you need to graduate in the major you choose.
