MOEYI Sixth Form Integration Pathway Programme
We are pleased to advise you of a new groundbreaking partnership initiative with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information – the Sixth Form Integration Pathway Programme – which will allow all Jamaican 2021 high school graduates to automatically transition to grade 12 to earn either their chosen Occupational Associate Degree (OAD) or an indigenous/Traditional Associate Degree (TAD) offered by another participating tertiary institution such as the UCC after completing grade 11.
Under this new K-13 model, the Ministry of Education, Youth & Information (MOEY&I) will provide a scholarship for the two years to all students!
In this regard, your high school and participating tertiary institutions including the UCC (which is one of only four UCJ institutionally accredited universities in Jamaica) will now partner to offer various Sixth Form Pathways for the new school year starting in Fall 2021.
All students who start in Fall 2021 will automatically be eligible to receive a 50% scholarship on their third-year tuition if they choose to pursue their bachelor degree with the UCC for two more years after completing their associate degree.
Early application for Fall 2021 ends on April 30, 2021. Apply by April 30, 2021 and the year 1 miscellaneous fee will be waived.
Under this programme, students who specifically choose to pursue their tertiary level study with the UCC /UCCA will be able to pursue their program of study on one of two pathways as seen below:
