Why choose JCCC for credit courses during high school?

College Now is the concurrent enrollment (or dual credit) program at Johnson County Community College. High school students who participate in the College Now program take high school courses that also bear college credit. According to the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP), concurrent enrollment students gain exposure to the academic challenges of college while in their supportive high school environment.

JCCC’s College Now courses are a great way to get ahead and stay ahead — saving you time and money.

Many College Now students take core courses that fit into the Associate in Arts (AA) degree because the AA is designed for students who plan to eventually earn a bachelor’s degree from a 4-year college or university.

EXCEL IN CTE (formerly Senate Bill 155) – High school students who are interested in certain trades or technical fields aim to take Excel in CTE courses. CTE stands for Career and Technical Education. The passing of SB 155 by the Kansas State Senate ensured that Excel in CTE courses are free to high school students who meet JCCC Kansas residency requirements for enrollment.

KBOR SEAMLESS TRANSFER - The state of Kansas has a designated system that allows courses to seamlessly transfer from one institution to another if an equivalent course is offered at the receiving institution. Courses that are part of the KBOR Systemwide Transfer (SWT) are indicated on each high school’s schedule. Find out more about transferring.
