JCC Takes Rapid Admission to Fort Drum Mar. 8

Jefferson Community College (JCC) will hold a Rapid Admission event on Fort Drum on Thursday, March 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the McEwen Library Education Complex.  JCC Rapid Admission will provide all of the services necessary for active duty soldiers, their family members and civilian employees to apply to Jefferson and begin classes as early as March 19 or at a later time.  

Military student advisors of JCC’s office on Fort Drum, admissions counselors, and representatives from the financial services office and JCC veteran’s counselor will be available to assist attendees with completing an application for admission (free), establishing a GoArmyEd account, applying for financial aid, completing college placement testing, if necessary, and registering for class. JCC’s next session of classes is 8-weeks in length, March 19 through May 10, with classes offered on Fort Drum, online and on campus.

During the summer, JCC offers 4-week and 8-week classes on campus and online beginning early June and July. Registration opens for summer session on March 19.  It’s not too early to think about enrolling for fall.  Fall semester classes begin August 27.  

Information about JCC’s non-credit workshops for professional growth and personal enrichment will also be available. Military spouses may be eligible to take “career focused” workshops for free through My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) funding. Recently, through a partnership between JCC and Fort Drum’s Army Community Service (ACS) Employment Readiness Program, Jefferson Express technology workshops are offered at ACS twice a month at no charge. 

Attendees are encouraged to bring a copy of their 2010 W-2’s and tax forms and high school graduation verification such as a copy of a transcript, GED or diploma. Veterans and active duty soldiers on terminal leave should bring their DD214 form with them to Rapid Admission.
