Competency Based Education courses

CBE courses are online and self-paced. They can be customized to the students' needs. Students can test out of material they've already mastered and concentrate on the material they need to learn. Students must have an understanding of computer hardware, software applications and the Internet.


Internships provide experience to students for on-the-job training with cooperating businesses, agencies, and organizations. The number of hours for each internship varies

Learning Community

A learning community is an integration of the content of two or more courses in a learning community and graded as if taken as separate courses. You will earn credit hours for each individual course. Enrollment is required in each individual course and not in the LCOM section. 

Private Lessons

Private lessons are scheduled by arrangement with private music instructors.

Self-Paced Courses and Self-Paced Online

These courses allow a student to start or end a course at times that do not typically coincide with the traditional college class schedule.

The courses are designed for students who are highly motivated and good independent learners. The student and instructor will work together to agree upon a course schedule and self-paced agreement that, in some cases, may take up to one calendar year to complete. Some courses may use online delivery to facilitate the learning experience.

Study Abroad

Study Abroad opportunities are programs for which college credit is earned while studying in any one of more than 30 countries for a summer, semester or a year. For program requirements, please refer to the JCCC Study Abroad web pages. It is very important to meet with your academic adviser prior to studying abroad to see how the credits will apply to general education requirements and transfer schools.

Travel Courses

Travel Courses may require in-class activities as well as traveling to a destination. Students will be responsible for the cost of the travel as well as the course costs.
