Congratulations on being accepted to JCCC! You're one step closer to achieving your academic goals. To ensure you're not in it alone, JCCC’s talented team of Cav Leaders, Success Coaches and Counselors are here to help map out your educational journey.

Take a Campus Tour, See for Yourself

Get to know campus with a “Find Your Class” tour.

A Cav Leader—our student admissions ambassadors—will help you find each classroom, plus prime spots for studying, snacking and collaborating. It’s a great way to make new friends and by the end of this experience, you’ll feel right at home.

Success Coaches Provide Support for First-Year Students - and Beyond

They will work with you to identify your strengths and challenges, balance responsibilities, set achievable goals, develop action plans, increase resiliency, and provide guidance and encouragement along the way.

Counselors Will Get You Started

Once you’ve enrolled, your next step is to meet with a counselor. JCCC counselors serve two roles—academic and personal counseling. Academic counselors are your go-to resource. They help you enroll in classes, choose or change your major, manage time and seamlessly transfer credits.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed or need someone to talk to, personal counselors offer a compassionate ear in a safe and confidential environment. Counselors advocate for you and will make referrals to appropriate agencies when needed.
