Enrolling Without a Major
You can still enroll for classes even if you haven't chosen a major, but if you intend to apply for financial aid through JCCC, you have to be enrolled in a program that leads to an associate's degree or an eligible vocational certificate or be in a transfer program that leads to a bachelor's degree at another institution. Get details on the Financial Aid Web page.
Refer to a list of degree options at JCCC for more information.
Changing Your Major
After you have met with a career or academic counselor and decided to change your major, you may refer to the records office for details regarding changing your major.
