Compare This School


The Anthem Institute – Jersey City is a local branch of the Anthem Institute based out of Parsippany, New Jersey. The chain of colleges and schools, previously known as the Chubb Institute, was founded by the Chubb insurance company in 1970 to provide technology and later medical training study programs. The various local branches of the Chubb Institute, located throughout the Northeast, were acquired by the High-Tech Institute in 2004 and renamed the Anthem Institute by 2008. The new ownership complements the High-Tech Institute’s ownership of other educational institutions including the Bryman School of Arizona, the Morrison University, Allied College, Anthem College Online and the High-Tech Institute itself.

The Jersey City branch, established in 1986, offers students the opportunity to obtain diplomas in a few different areas related to the health professions and tech industry.


Like all Anthem campuses, the Jersey City location prides itself on producing graduates that are highly trained in skill sets that top employers desire, something which is achieved by a dynamic mix of classroom learning with experience in real-world settings (through apprenticeships, field trips, etc.). There are six programs of study available, all of which culminate in a diploma, and they are: Medical Billing & Coding; Graphic Design & Animation; Massage Therapy; Medical Assistant; Computer Networking & Security; and Patient Care Technician.

Most Popular Fields of Study


The admissions process is quite simple and straightforward. Applicants are expected to meet three basic criteria: they must demonstrate proficiency in the English language (there are quite a few international students applying on a regular basis), they must possess a high school diploma or GED certificate by the time classes are to begin, and they must pass the school’s entrance exam. Then, the school sets up a meeting between the applicant and a member of the admissions staff; this is an opportunity for the applicant to review in detail exactly what kinds of courses are included in the catalog and identify which program would best meet their needs and desires, and furthermore to shape a basic notion of the person’s goals in terms of future career.

Finally, the admissions process of course entails submitting the official application form and official copy of the high school diploma or equivalent, the payment of the application fee and the signing of the enrollment agreement.

Financial Aid

Students are eligible to participate in the Federal Title IV financial assistance programs, which means students will be able to apply for and receive, on the basis of need, aid in the form of Federal Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, PLUS Loans, etc. Students need to submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid as soon as possible during the admissions process itself in order to ensure that they are considered for the maximum disbursement possible in light of the level of financial need which they demonstrate.
