JCC+FRED: Bachelor’s Opportunities Locally Delivered

Earn your bachelor’s degree at JCC

Jamestown Community College has partnered with SUNY Fredonia to offer students a bachelor’s degree in select programs at JCC.

You can earn your associate’s degree at JCC. Then, you can stay at JCC for two more years to complete your bachelor’s program through our Fredonia partnership. In four years you’ll graduate with both a JCC associate’s degree and Fredonia bachelor’s degree, with the convenience of staying in the southern tier.

Fredonia instructors will teach on the Jamestown Campus, and courses will be broadcast simultaneously to the Cattaraugus County Campus.
