We know you have questions about helping your student succeed at JCCC – from how to add money to their Student ID card to connecting them with on-campus resources to ways they can get involved in student life. We’re here to help you support your student as they achieve their educational goals.


Access to Student information

JCCC maintains student educational records in accordance with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). If you want access to your student's college-related information, you will need to submit a release signed by your student.

A signed Release of Information Form grants the designated person or agency access to the information identified on the form. This release form remains in effect until revoked in writing by the student. The form is not intended to be used for a single release of information, such as to request a transcript or for enrollment verification. These types of requests will require a Transcript Request or a Verification of Enrollment form.

How to Load Funds onto Your Student's JCCC ID Card

Your student can register you to provide funds to their JCCC ID Card. After you receive access, you can make guest deposits to the card, which will allow your student to use the funds on campus in the bookstore, dining services or vending machines. 

Receive Authorization to View and Pay a Student Balance

Students may authorize others to view and/or pay their tuition or JCCC bill. Students can set up multiple authorized users and remove them at any time.

Resources for Student Success

  • First-time college students are assigned a Success Advocate – their point person for information and resources. When they have questions about tutoring, financial assistance, campus activities, personal counseling needs or even challenges with faculty, they should start with their Success Advocate. As mentors and accountability partners, Success Advocates work with students to create an action plan for a successful first year and beyond.
  • Academic Counselors help students develop their course schedule based on individual needs and goals. They specialize in program areas across the College and can assist students in choosing a degree program or transferring to a four-year school. Counselors also provide short-term personal counseling and offer a safe and confidential environment for students to talk about their concerns. They can make referrals to appropriate outside agencies when needed.
  • The Academic Resource Center offers:

Financial and Career Success

Figuring out how to finance college can be stressful, but we work with you and your student to make it as seamless as possible. Make sure you’ve completed the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Your student will need this form to qualify for federal work-study programs and to apply for JCCC scholarships, where one application gives your student access to hundreds of scholarships. Make an appointment with a financial aid specialist who can walk you through the process.

The Career Development Center can help your student identify on-campus jobs, and through JobLinks, a free database, find employment in the community. The Center also works with students to help them determine their career interests and possible direction, organizes job fairs to introduce them to potential employers, helps them prepare their resume, and assists them with interview skills.

Student Life Success

JCCC’s student life is an active one with clubs and organizations that fit most any interest. Our student lounge, dining areas and outdoor spaces provide plenty of opportunities to spend time with friends. Campus-wide events fill the semester calendar and, with their JCCC ID card, students can use the fitness center and take group fitness classes.

For students who need additional support in the areas of housing, transportation, supplies or even interview clothing, JCCC’s Student Basic Needs Center empowers students to overcome hardships, reduce stress and focus on being healthy and successful.
