The minimum requirements for admission to JCC are graduation from an accredited secondary school, possession of a high school equivalency diploma, or home-school documentation. The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and the ACT Assessment Test are not required for admission.
JCC has endorsed the concept of Full Opportunity of the State University of New York and accepts the philosophical implications of that decision. This means the college has agreed to accept all applicants who are legal residents of the sponsoring area, who are 18 years of age or older, and who are high school graduates.
The college reserves the right to make exceptions to its admissions policies and to impose other criteria on students seeking admission who do not meet the requirements above. This policy does not, however, guarantee admission of students to specific programs within JCC's curriculum. It does imply a commitment to meet the special needs of the students who may require developmental courses, tutorial services, and additional counseling services. It also challenges the college to expand its career programs, institute new approaches to the teaching-learning process, and provide students with the flexibility of changing courses and programs without penalty.
