If your goal is to obtain a degree or certificate from JCC:

  1. Follow the “How to Apply” steps for Admission

  3. Review the JCC Programs of Study and make a note of the courses required to complete your desired program. If you know what field you are interested in but not sure what program will help start you in that right direction, or you are unsure what program you want, a career counselor in the Advising Center can help you.
  4. Preview the class schedule to get a general idea of the classes available to you
