To be eligible for admission as a high school student concurrently enrolled at Johnson County Community College, each applicant needs to meet a set of established criteria.

Grades 10, 11 and 12

Concurrently enrolled students (defined as a person, in grades 10, 11 or 12) must meet institutional enrollment requirements, follow institutional procedures regarding assessment/placement, and satisfy course prerequisites.

Students who have not yet graduated from high school will be officially registered or enrolled as non-degree seeking students at JCCC.

9th Grade Gifted Students

Ninth grade students are eligible to enroll in credit classes by completing the following requirements:

  • Submit an application for admission.
  • Submit a copy of a current Individual Educational Plan (IEP) from a public school to the JCCC Admissions Office.

For admission as a high school student concurrently enrolled at Johnson County Community College, each applicant shall be required to meet criteria, pursuant to the Kansas Board of Regents Policy for Concurrent Enrollment of High School Students in Eligible Postsecondary Institutions, Kansas Statute Annotated 72-11a03, 72-962, 72-987, 72-1111, Kansas House Bill 2575, and Kansas Senate Bill 541.

There are several options for students who have transferred mid-year to a new high school.

  • Fall semester long course – finish your fall courses at your current high school and enroll in spring College Now courses at your new high school, if available.
  • College Algebra course – our JCCC instructors will work with you to finish the course at your new high school.  We need to know once you have switched high schools so we can adjust your enrollment to the correct CRN. Have your new high school counselor email the JCCC Registrar Office with the details.
  • Year-long course
    • If the new high school does not offer the same course you are enrolled in, you will need to withdraw and will receive a ‘W’ on your JCCC transcript. JCCC will need a letter from your new high school stating they do not offer the same course. You may submit a Tuition Refund Appeal to ask if your tuition may be refunded.  View the “How do I drop a College Now class” FAQ for details on dropping a year-long course.
       
    • If your new high school does offer the same course, your new high school instructor would need to discuss this enrollment change with you prior to making any enrollment changes.  This is to make sure the course is close to the same section of curriculum as the previous high school. If so, your new high school will need to email the Registrar Office to enroll you in the correct CRN for your new high school.

You need to withdraw and will receive a ‘W’ on your JCCC transcript.

Failure to drop your College Now course at JCCC will result in a grade of ‘F’ on your JCCC transcript.
