Background

St. Francis College's Post-Prison Program serves justice-involved men and women looking to attain a bachelor's degree as full-time students. For those with criminal justice histories, education reduces the risk of recidivism while opening up doors to a career path that can break the cycle of crime and poverty. Aligned with the mission of St. Francis College, our Franciscan tradition and commitment to helping disadvantaged and first-generation students earn a degree, the Post-Prison Program provides extensive academic, scholarship and mentoring support to formerly incarcerated men and women within a rigorous college program.

Post-Prison Program students enroll as full-time, bachelor's degree students during the re-entry process. Students with justice-involvement are engaged in a traditional college setting and receive additional support and mentorship. It is often the case that classmates don't know about their criminal justice involvement. They are not stigmatized or publicly identified unless they choose to self-disclose, and their experience brings a new lens to class discussions and collaborative learning.
