Connect with your path to success through one of our more than 60 programs of study, certificates, one-plus-one agreements, or special credit opportunities. From business to computer science, criminal justice to fine arts, education to nursing, you’ll discover a challenging yet caring environment where you’ll be welcomed from day one.
Our flexible class schedules—with day, evening, weekend, and online options—will help you connect your educational goals with a time that works for you. And with an average class size of 16 students, you’ll be challenged by professors who not only know your name, but also how you learn best.
At Jamestown Community College, you can complete a certificate or associate degree as you connect to your future. Though each offers a different path, both certificates and associate degrees can open doors to new opportunities for you and your career.
Unless otherwise noted, programs may be completed at either the Jamestown or Cattaraugus County Campus.
■ Program completion will require students to attend some classes on the Jamestown Campus.
* Program is available online.
An associate degree prepares you for employment and/or transfer to a four-year institution. For those looking to go on to earn a four-year degree, this is the preferred option, and no previous experience in the field is required. On a full-time basis, it generally takes two years to complete an associate degree.
If you are seeking specific skill development and immediate employment upon completion—or are seeking job-specific training—certificate programs are your best option. These generally take at least one academic year to earn.
Connect to your future through JCC's One-Plus-One Agreements, where students spend one year at JCC and then transfer to a partner institution to complete the second year of the degree program. JCC offers agreements for:
Our world is becoming more connected. The barriers that once separated countries and continents no longer exist. In this new, globalized world, we believe that it’s more important than ever to bring an international perspective to your education.
We offer you a variety of study abroad options. As part of the College Consortium of International Studies, eligible JCC students are able to participate in semester or longer programs in almost 30 countries, from Ireland to India. We have agreements with organizations in Spain and China, allowing JCC students to spend a semester teaching English in exchange for housing, all while earning college credit. And we offer summer opportunities in Guatemala, where you’ll receive one-on-one Spanish instruction and perform career-related volunteer work. And that’s just the beginning.
Worried that you won’t be able to fit studying abroad into your schedule? Don’t be. Up to 15 of the credits you earn while studying abroad can be counted towards your degree at JCC. Not only that, but students studying abroad can apply for a few additional scholarship opportunities, and in many cases students are still able to receive financial aid from federal, state, and institutional sources. Check with your academic advisor or a financial aid specialist to find out what your situation would be.Learn More

Experiential learning at Jamestown Community College offers you the opportunity to apply what you learn in the classroom to the real world, so you not only get the theory, you put it into practice.
Our curriculum reflects this commitment to experiential learning. Want to start building your professional network and get a jumpstart on your career? Complete a credit or non-credit-bearing internship or participate in our job shadowing program. Have an interest that you’d like to share with others? Start a club. You can also take an EL-intensive course or study abroad. The opportunities are all there, waiting for you to seize them.Learn More

At JCC we know that knowledge isn’t just academic; it’s lived experience. That’s why many of our faculty members are still actively involved in the fields they teach, learning the latest trends and instructing their students in the most up-to-date methodology.
