Steps to become a JCC+SBU student

If you are a high school senior or a high school graduate who's never enrolled in college before, create an account and complete the JCC+SBU application. Admissions counselors at SBU will identify students who are eligible for the JCC+SBU program. You are admitted jointly to JCC and SBU and begin classes at JCC in the upcoming fall semester.

If you are a JCC student in your first or second semester, you can apply to the JCC+SBU program in the JCC Admissions office.

The SBU admissions office will notify you, by letter, of your acceptance into the JCC+SBU program.

Accepted JCC+SBU students need to complete and return the JCC+SBU records release form that accompanies the SBU acceptance letter. By signing the form, you allow SBU to share information you identified in your application and your high school transcript with JCC.

SBU will let JCC know that you want to be a JCC+SBU student. The JCC admissions office will send you a welcome email outlining the next steps necessary to complete your enrollment.
