Email Advising

Email Advising is designed to answer your quick questions, but there are limitations to the format. If you have a question that requires a significant amount of discussion, it would be best to see a counselor in person.

Personal Information

To protect your privacy, use your JCCC email account. If you are a prospective student, you may use another email account. However, we  can't answer any identifying or specific information using email accounts that are not assigned through JCCC.

Tips for Email Advising

  • Email Advising is intended for one or two short questions.
  • Describe your content in the subject line of the e-mail.
  • Avoid using confidential and sensitive information.
  • Use your full name and JCCC ID number in the body of the e-mail, not in the subject line.
  • Avoid asking urgent questions through email, use IM Advising if the information is not confidential.
  • Provide short, yet specific details necessary to answer the question.

Email your question to Allow up to 1-2 business days for a response.

We can answer these types of questions via email.

  • Will HIST 141 fulfill a humanities requirement?
  • When can I start enrolling for the fall semester?
  • Where do I take my placement test at JCCC?
  • Can I drop my classes online?

Due to privacy and complexity of the information, you will need to meet with a counselor in person for the following types of questions.

  • What math class did I place into?
  • I'm having difficulties with my English teacher, what should I do?
  • What do I need to take each semester I'm here in order to graduate in two years?
  • Do my credits from another school transfer to JCCC?
  • I think I am interested in English, what can I do with a major in that?
