Admission to this program requires approval from the Electrical Technology Department.

Use the online admissions application to apply to JCCC. You may also apply with the assistance of an academic counselor. All admission requirements by the College, including orientation, must be completed before you can be accepted into the ELTE program.

You must declare your major as 5110 Electrical Technology Certificate. If you intend to pursue the Associate of Applied Science degree, then you will also declare the 2260 ELTE AAS as your secondary major.

If you need to update your major, submit the Change of Major form.

Review the schedules that are available for this program.  To be considered for a particular timeslot in the ELTE program, you must complete the student contact form. This will add you to the list of students that will be contacted by the department once schedule placement for each semester begins.  You will need your JCCC ID and password to do this. We recommend starting this process as soon as possible:

Student Contact Form

Once you submit the form, you will receive a confirmation email to your JCCC stumail account that will include your form submission along with next step information. 

Schedule Placement begins when the credit class schedule for each semester becomes available online at (see Academic Calendar for specific dates).  At that time, all students that have submitted a student contact form will be emailed to their STUMAIL account from  to confirm their desired schedule. 

You will need to immediately respond to that email to secure your preferred schedule.  At that point, timeslots are granted on a “first come-first serve” basis.  Your spot in the ELTE program is not confirmed until you respond to this email. 

All courses require DEPARTMENT APPROVAL. Once you receive this confirmation from the ELTE department, you'll be able to enroll in the appropriate classes during open enrollment (see Academic Calendar for specific dates). This process cannot be completed with a counselor.

Your spot for each successive class is guaranteed unless you deviate from the schedule progression.  At that point, re-admission into the program is required and course enrollment is subject to availability.

When a schedule timeslot fills, those remaining will be granted approval to enroll in the JCCC course waitlist for ELTE 110 ACDC CIRCUITS.  If a spot opens in your preferred schedule choice, you will be emailed based on the order in which you were placed on that waitlist. You will have 24 hours to enroll in that course and email to be granted DEPARTMENT APPROVAL for the rest of the classes within the schedule.  If you miss this timeline, then your approval will expire and you will be dropped from the waitlist.  The next person on the waitlist will be contacted for this spot.  (Waitlist spots are limited.  See Waitlist Procedures.)

If you are not successful in securing a spot for any schedule once classes begin, your name will be removed from the department contact list.  You will have to re-submit the student contact form if you are interested in the next available schedule offering.

If you are interested in taking a class before you begin the ELTE Certificate, then you could take some of the 15 credit hours of general education classes that are a required part of the ELTE Associate of Applied Science Degree. You do not need ELTE department approval to enroll in any of these classes:

The ELTE department schedules special sections of these courses that are designed only for electrical students.  Although, there are other sections of these courses offered year-round by other departments that may have availability but require their approval:

If you are interested in another Industrial Technology program, the program webpages to inquire about their department admission process:


Standard tuition rates apply (see our tuition page).

We highly recommend that you pay for your courses as soon as possible (see academic calendars for specific dates). If you drop off of the schedule due to non-payment, you could lose your spot to another candidate on the waitlist.
