We have transfer agreements with more than 60 local and regional four-year colleges and universities. This means that you can get a head start on your bachelor’s degree at JCCC for a fraction of the cost, and then take those class credits with you to a four-year school.

Ensure You’re Meeting Course Prerequisites

Many courses at JCCC are designed to be taken in a specific order and require students to complete a prerequisite course before enrolling. View the JCCC Course Catalog to find out any prerequisite courses required for the class you wish to enroll in.

If you have completed prerequisites at another college, you will need to have your coursework reviewed before enrolling in the next course at JCCC. Review the Prerequisites and Placement webpage for additional information.
