JCCC counselors are available to help you succeed as a student.

Meet With a Counselor Today

  • Choose or change your major and stay on track for graduation.
  • Ensure a smooth transfer process to a 4-year institution.
  • Discover resources and tools available to help build your schedule, complete enrollment and receive help with coursework each semester.
  • Learn how to get involved in Student Senate, clubs and orgs, athletics, study abroad, service learning, honors and other leadership programs.
  • If there’s a hold on your account due to test scores, academic probation or suspension, you are required to meet with a counselor.

Before meeting with a counselor for the first time

  • Apply to become a JCCC student if you're not currently attending JCCC
  • Attend a new student orientation session
  • Complete any required assessment tests (if necessary)
  • Request your official records/transcripts/ACT scores be sent to JCCC
  • If you're a prospective JCCC Nursing Program applicant, attend a Nursing Information Session.

Prepare for your visit

To make sure the time spent with a counselor is helpful, write down a list of questions to bring with you.

  • Planning on earning a degree from JCCC? Print your DegreeCheck Audit. If your degree doesn’t appear on the first page of the audit, use the “What If” option to check status.
  • Transferring to JCCC from another college or university? If we do not have your transcripts on file, bring an unofficial copy so the counselor has all of your academic information.
  • Transferring after JCCC? If there is a transfer guide to your school of choice, download the guide and bring it with you.

If you previously met with a counselor to create an educational plan, or if you're interested in taking certain classes, bring the plan and class list with you.

If you'd like to meet with a counselor to create an educational plan, write up a financial aid appeal or discuss your career or major, call 913-469-3809 to set an appointment. This will reduce your wait time and will give the counselor time to gather appropriate resources for your meeting.


If you have a quick question or an urgent issue that must be resolved ASAP, or if you are dealing with an academic or personal crisis, stop by the Success Center on the second floor of the Student Center and request a walk-in appointment.
