EWC is a private Historically Black College (HBCU) in Jacksonville, Florida. We offer small class sizes, individual attention, diverse social activities, and a rolling enrollment policy, which encourages our students to see the possibilities in their future. Recognizing and practicing national academic standards is imperative for the educational process. EWC is no exception to those philosophies. However, EWC avoids utilizing test scores as the main focus to determine a student's academic potential. The college has an assessment program, which enables it to ascertain the level students need to begin their college career here at EWC. Not only do we offer different degree programs, we also offer the type of environment that is unique to an urban student. There are a variety of student activities to be involved in outside of the classroom, such as the Student Government Association or one of the Greek Fraternities and Sororities.
