      Application for Admission

Notification of Application Completion

  • You will receive a notification by email including your new JCCC email address within 5 business days.
  • JCCC is an open admission institution. This means that all students who apply for general admission are accepted. Students applying for selective degree programs that accept only a select number of students, will be issued an I-20 only after being accepted by that degree program.
  • To determine the status of your application processing, you can review your admission status online by logging in to your MyJCCC account and following the instructions provided in your application receipt notification email.
  • Some email servers recognize JCCC email as spam or junk/garbage mail and automatically reject it. Should you not receive an acceptance notification due to a server rejection or for any other reason, a manual message or letter may be sent.
  • Contact us by email or call our office with any questions.


  • MyJCCC is a secure web-based information system that provides you information regarding the status of your admission as well as access to your JCCC email account, course schedule, grades/marks, services on campus such as the bookstore for preordering books and much more.

I-20 Issuance

  • An I-20 will be issued after all I-20 required documents have been received and accepted by JCCC, by the appropriate deadline.
  • If you are applying for a selective admission program, your I-20s won't be issued until you have been admitted to the selective admission program and having satisfied all I-20 requirements.

Definitions of General Admission, Selective Admission and Enrollment

  • General admission means JCCC has accepted your general application to become a student of the college.
  • Selective admission means some certificate or training programs have additional, competitive admission requirements. There is a limited number of students the program can accept each semester. Therefore, not all applicants are accepted for selective admission programs.
  • Enrollment is the act of registering or enrolling in one’s chosen courses/classes.

Complete Transcript Requirements

For information about transcript requirements, transferring foreign college credit to satisfy JCCC requirements, transferring JCCC credits to another U.S. college and transferring other U.S. college credits to JCCC, refer to Transfer and Transcript Information.
