What is a Flex Start class?

Flex Start classes are 14, 12 and 8-week courses that allow you to take classes when it’s most convenient for you. They are offered each semester.  


What are the benefits of taking a Flex Start class?

1. You can work around your schedule Out of town or have prior commitments and unable to juggle classes right now? Don’t worry! You can register for a Flex Start class that begins later in the semester.

2. Classes are shorter 

Flex Start classes give you the same knowledge as a traditional 16-week class in less time. You can maximize your course load so you can finish your degree sooner!   


Are there any changes to Flex Start classes due to COVID-19? 

All lecture courses will be held online and courses with a combination of lecture and lab will be delivered in a hybrid format, with the lecture portion online and the lab portion face-to-face. 

JJC will still offer on-campus student services Monday through Thursday but encourages students who don’t have in-person labs to access these services virtually. On Fridays and Saturdays, the physical campus will be closed and only remote services will be available. In-person labs will still go on as scheduled.  

Additional information on JJC’s operations can be found on the COVID-19 FAQ page. You can also find information about on-campus safety procedures in a previous blog post.
