While community colleges already carry fewer costs than four-year colleges and universities, Joliet Junior College is committed to supporting students facing any financial challenge. Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and payment plans are available, but did you know about these other existing and new resources?
If you’re one of the many college students that still doesn’t know what you want to be when you grow up, that’s okay! You are already on the right path if you are attending a community college. You’ll get your gen ed classes out of the way while figuring out what interests you. For those who intend to transfer to a four-year school later on, this will save you time and money along your journey.
Welcome to a new semester! Now that you’ve had some time to adjust to your new courses, it might be a good time to get involved on campus. The Office of Student Activities (OSA) is a great place to start looking for clubs and events. With over 30 clubs and honor societies, there’s plenty to get involved in. Here are a few of the many clubs you can join.
The Disability Services Office at Joliet Junior College is committed to providing students with disabilities equal access to education.
Students register with the office to determine eligibility for accommodations, which support students’ access to resources and assist in their academic journey. Here, we spotlight four ways that Disability Services is assisting students.
With the fall semester approaching, many students are beginning to think about the transition back to classes. Whether you are new to college or a returning student, it’s important to be prepared for the semester, especially given the challenges from the pandemic this past year. The Joliet Junior College Library wants to make that transition as seamless as possible.
Joliet Junior Collegeoffers nine guided academic pathways for students to choose from. But what is a pathway? Pathways separate career clusters into easy-to-understand groupings, allowing students to choose a major based on their interests and strengths. This allows students to complete their degree on time, save money and reduces duplication of courses if they change their major. It also helps with advising to make sure that students are on the right path to graduating on time.
Watch our video for an explainer on pathways, and read more on each of these nine groupings.
As part of a three-year grant, Joliet Junior College is supporting local businesses and students by growing the number of registered apprenticeships. The $140,000 grant from the American Association of Community Colleges, with funding from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), aims to create 150 apprentices.
