All courses required to earn a specific associate degree are normally offered with such frequency that a full-time student can earn the degree in a two-year period.

Each course description has designations indicating which semester and on which campus (Jamestown - J, Cattaraugus County Campus - C, or Online) the college intends to offer the course. Certain courses do not have a designation indicating which semester they are offered; these courses may or may not be offered on the specified campus(es) during the period 2014-2015. The college reserves the right to cancel course offerings if enrollment is insufficient.

JCC also offers credit-free courses, seminars, and workshops. For more information, contact the Center for Continuing Education.
