Begun in the fall of 1968 as the School of General Studies, it was renamed Thomas Jefferson College in the fall of 1969. It was one of the first "cluster" colleges promoting experimental education. The college gave students both the freedom and responsibility to design their own curriculum, guided by a faculty member and approved by the faculty. It did not have a mathematics program and offered courses in mathematics only occasionally. It was closed after the 1979-1980 academic year.
