New, First-Time Students

Students who have not attended another college and who are entering JCC for the first time should follow these steps:

  • Apply online.
  • Request high school guidance office to forward an official copy of the student's transcript to the admissions office.
  • Home-schooled students must complete the necessary documentation indicating completion of secondary level education as defined by state (see below for additional information).
  • Students possessing a recognized equivalent of a high school diploma, such as a general educational development or GED certificate must submit appropriate documentation.

  • Following notification of acceptance, students are informed of advisement and registration procedures that entering freshmen must complete prior to the start of classes.
