Support for adult students

We're here to help you find success while you're at JCC and through graduation to help you achieve your life goals.

Each semester your advisor will help you develop your class schedule to help you stay on track. You can receive 1:1 tutoring, sign up for a peer mentor, and take advantage of resources like single parent support, military support, and accessibility services.

As you look toward the future, you can explore careers through job shadowing and internships. We can help you with interview coaching, resume writing, and networking skills. If you want to continue your education, JCC has hundreds of transfer agreements with other colleges and universities.

We're with you every step of the way.

Alumni Spotlight: Jennifer Whiteman

"I just thought I was one of those people that just, college was not meant for them...I was really afraid of failing one more time. So, one of the advisors pulled me aside and said, "You can, and it’s going to be tough...You’re going to get to a wall, but you’re going to be able to get through it." I think that the top experience here...was actually graduating. Walking across the stage. I left the stage, and I just broke down crying...It was a goal I really truly thought was not reachable for me. And I was wrong."


Alumni Spotlight: John Lee

"I’m a graduate of the Maintenance Technician program at JCC. After graduating we had a job fair of five companies that came in, and we actually heard back almost immediately - interviews, job offers - right off the bat. SUNY really prepared me to get into my career by making me feel confident. Their teachers were fantastic, they were engaging, and they were helpful. I can’t stress it enough. JCC has really been a cornerstone in my life."
