Selective Admissions

Selective Admissions

Admission to the college does not guarantee enrollment in any specific course or program. Selective admission programs have a limited number of openings each year and have specific entry-level admission requirements that must be met before selection for admission to the program. If you are interested in any of the following programs, obtain an admission packet from the Success Center, second floor of the Student Center. The packet provides the specific up-to-date selection criteria. In addition, you should meet with a JCCC counselor as early as possible.

Admission to each of the selective admission programs is highly competitive. Therefore, you should request and submit an application packet as early as possible.
