Once you have your password, you can schedule your advising and registration appointment online or by calling Enrollment Services at (315) 786-2437. To schedule your appointment online, log in to the myJCC student portal using your Jefferson ID and password. Then, navigate to the C4S (Connect for Success) section on the left-hand side of the page. Click on the options icon located next to Starfish at the top of the page, and select the My Success Network tab. In the search bar, type "New Student Advising," and click "Schedule an Appointment." This will bring up the calendar where you can schedule your appointment.

Students are encouraged to apply for Financial Aid, even if they plan on taking only one or two courses or think they may not qualify.

Taking a Class or Two at JCC

Take a class or two at Jefferson Community College to earn transferable credit and acquire a new skill, or for personal enrichment. Non-degree seeking students (a.k.a. non-matriculated students) may register for 4-week, 8-week, or 15-week classes. Declaring a major and seeking a degree (matriculated students) may always be done at a later date. Cost per credit hour at JCC is one of the lowest compared to many other colleges!
