MOEY Sixth-Form Pathways Programme

We are pleased to advise you of a new groundbreaking partnership initiative with the Ministry of Education and Youth  – the Sixth Form Pathways Programme – which will allow all Jamaican 2022 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 and Youth (MOEY) 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 five UCJ institutionally accredited institutions in Jamaica) will now partner to offer various Sixth Form Pathways for the new school year starting in Fall 2022. 

All students who start in 2022 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.

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: 

Sixth Form Pathway I (Traditional)
Sixth Form Pathway II (Technical)
