Important Campus Access

At JCCC, we continue to implement measures to ensure the safest possible environment for you, our employees and visitors on our different campus locations. Since last spring, we have implemented best practice guidelines to follow for the public areas of our buildings and classrooms.

As you may be aware from our online COVID-19 Case tracker, we continue to have a very low number of cases associated with the College. Nevertheless, we are taking additional steps to reduce the footprint of individuals on campus because of the rising incidence of the virus in Johnson County and the strain this is putting on our local health care providers.

If you have questions about your classes, you should be in communication with your instructor(s).

Please know that ALL decisions made on how JCCC serves your educational needs will continue to center on protecting your personal safety and that of our employees, while responding to the demands on our community health resources. If you are in need of financial assistance, food assistance or a laptop/hotspot loan, please contact JCCC’s Student Basic Needs Center.
