JCCC has a number of selective admission programs. These programs of study have specific deadlines, prerequisites and other admission criteria. Learn more about the selective admission programs and admission requirements at JCCC below.


Admission to the College does not guarantee enrollment in any specific course or program. Selective admission programs have a limited number of openings each year and have specific entry-level admission requirements that must be met before selection for admission to the program. If you are interested in any of the following programs, please visit the department website for admission requirements and application instructions. In addition, you should meet with a JCCC counselor as early as possible.

Selective admission programs are not eligible for the 60+ reduced tuition rate.

Admission to each of the selective admission programs is highly competitive. Therefore, you should review the admission requirements and submit an application as early as possible.
