CLEAR students who attend expansion classes learn life skills necessary for independent living while building strong friendships along the way.

Each class meets for one hour per week for 14 weeks each semester. Students attending weekday classes are learning independent living skills and are responsible for getting to their classrooms on their own. While on campus, students are encouraged to participate in other JCCC activities before or after class.

All students must meet attendance criteria. Students new to the program must call the CLEAR office to set up an appointment for an enrollment interview. For an interview, call the CLEAR office at 913-469-3247.

Students may attend classes in one of two ways, independently or through their 18-21 post high program. Those attending independently will receive enrollment sent directly to them each semester. For those attending with a post high, high school transition staff will assist students in registering for CLEAR expansion classes and may also provide information about academic achievement classes, lifetime fitness programs and other campus activities. CLEAR expansion class enrollment is processed through the CLEAR office. Registration for all other credit or non-credit classes is done through the regular JCCC enrollment process. 

Electronic Registration: Students who wish to pay their semester fees using a card or e-check should complete the electronic enrollment form. Electronic Enrollment will open on July 1 and end on August 20, 2021. Only students who would like to pay using cash or a money order should use the paper enrollment method.
