Net price calculator

Federal law requires all colleges and universities to provide this kind of calculator so you can compare costs at a variety of schools. The calculator provides a preliminary estimate of the cost to attend JCC full-time and financial aid students have recently received. Your unique circumstances will ultimately determine the kind of aid you might receive at JCC.

Use the Net Price calculator »

The net price calculator is designed to be compatible with a wide range of web browsers. However, it does make use of some newer web standards that are not supported by older browsers. Users of Microsoft Internet Explorer earlier than version 8.0 or Mozilla Firefox 3.6 will probably experience problems completing parts of the calculator, in which case users may want to upgrade to newer versions.
