Bag Check Inspections

The safety of our students, guests and employees is a priority at JCCC. As a safety precaution, bag check inspections will be instituted at this year’s commencement. It is recommended that graduating students and their guest(s) leave large bags in their vehicles to assist with a smooth entry process.  JCCC police personnel will be conducting an inspection of the contents of large bags (including purses, backpacks, diaper bags, etc., over 12” x 12”). JCCC reserves the right to refuse entry to guests who refuse bag inspection. Thank you for your cooperation as we work to keep everyone safe. As a friendly reminder, carrying of a concealed weapon (CCW) is prohibited in JCCC facilities.
