College Now

The College Now program is a partnership program that provides high school students with an opportunity to earn college credits through concurrent enrollment while completing their high school requirements.


Step 1 - Apply

Great news -- you only have to apply one time regardless of how many semesters you take classes. If you've already applied - go to Step 2.

Start an Application Make sure to choose the fall 2016 semester.

Step 2 - Course Placement

You only have to do this if it's on the College Now schedule for your school and if you are enrolled in English, chemistry, math and/or physics. See College Now schedules.

If you are required to take a placement test there are two options:

  • ACT Score - If you've taken the ACT, you can bring in your original score report to JCCC Testing Services or have it sent directly from your high school.
  • COMPASS placement test - If you haven't taken the ACT, you'll need to visit JCCC Testing Services on the third floor of the Student Center. Be sure to bring a current photo ID and your JCCC ID number.
    See information about taking a placement test.
 

Crucial information about taking the COMPASS test:

NO personal items, including purses and backpacks, are allowed during testing. There are NO lockers available, so please lock personal items in your car.

See Testing Services procedures for a detailed list of banned items and other important information.  

Testing Services has implemented a modified traffic flow to accommodate long lines. Follow the "High School Testing" signs when you arrive.

 

 

This is important!

Just because you're enrolled in a high school class, that doesn't mean you're enrolled at JCCC or that you will be able to take the equivalent JCCC class. Your placement test score can have a significant impact on your schedule at the college.

Step 3 - Enroll - Deadline is Friday, Sept. 16 (No extensions)

Be sure to have your 5-digit CRN number for each class you want to take. Your school schedule will have the correct CRNs. Payment is due the day you enroll.

NOTE: If you enroll and choose not to take the course, you must officially drop the class or you will still be required to pay. If you decide to drop, you must do this with JCCC AND your high school to avoid a failing grade.
