OVERLAND PARK, Kan. Aug. 23, 2021 – Johnson County Community College (JCCC) is eager to welcome new and returning students to campus for the start of fall semester. After over a year of virtual learning, JCCC is bustling with face-to-face classes and resources to help students succeed at every step of their educational journey.

“JCCC faculty and staff stand ready to serve students with great responsiveness and integrity. With our continued commitment to student success and educational excellence, we are excited to offer a schedule that resembles pre-pandemic offerings with an emphasis on more face-to-face courses,” said Gurbhushan Singh, Associate Vice President of Instruction. 

With nearly 2,500 class options to choose from, students can plan this semester with their goals, learning style and schedule in mind. More than 790 classes are face-to-face this fall — an increase from last year when JCCC only offered 218 face-to-face fall classes.

Additionally, students can choose from 439 hybrid classes that require some on-campus meetings. For those who want to continue learning from the safety of home, 379 classes are considered online hybrid where face-to-face sessions are not required. Finally, 881 classes are strictly online this semester.

Classes cover everything from general education topics to unique offerings such as environmental literature, grant proposal writing and global food cultures. Offering a mix of course delivery methods and a variety of class topics ensures students can build their schedules based on specific needs and interests.

Not only is JCCC offering an expanded number of face-to-face classes, many on-campus resources are continuing to offer both online and in-person assistance. JCCC’s new state-of-the-art Academic Resource Center is a one-stop shop for free personalized tutoring and class support.

The College has learned a great deal about protecting the campus community and maintaining teaching and learning throughout the pandemic. To prioritize health and safety this fall, JCCC is:

  • Requiring facial coverings in all indoor areas
  • Adding sanitization stations stocked with masks and hand sanitizer at every major entrance
  • Hosting vaccination clinics for staff, faculty and students
  • Adopting updated cleaning protocols
  • Enhancing air filtration systems
  • Positioning temperature check stations throughout campus to support daily wellness checks
While fall semester kicks off today, students still have the opportunity to enroll. Short-term classes are available in four-, eight-, and 10-week sessions as a way to supplement a busy schedule. Browse our class offerings and learn more about our steps to enroll.
