2020-2021 Catalog



Welcome to Joliet Junior College!


Making JJC the first choice for our community not only serves as the college’s vision statement, it is truly my guiding principle. My personal commitment to you is that JJC will continue to provide access to high-quality education for all in a welcoming, diverse, and equitable environment.

Nearly 27,000 students annually enroll in academic and continuing education programs at the college. In a 2018 survey*, 98% of responses from students surveyed would recommend JJC to a friend or family member. This is an amazing endorsement and one we take seriously. Your success is our success.

Did you know that JJC offers 184 degree and certificate programs? These innovative programs provide opportunities in the most progressive areas in science, business, fine arts, health care, and technical areas, to name a few.

At JJC, we provide many options that will help you achieve your educational goals. The college offers programs for students planning to transfer to a four-year university; occupational and technical education leading directly to employment; adult education and literacy programs; personal development courses; workforce training programs; and support services like new student orientation, personal and career counseling, and tutoring centers to help students succeed.

Your access to quality education is important. In 2019, JJC students were awarded $757,089 in scholarships to support their educational goals. Creating pathways to financial support is critical and at JJC, it is a priority to provide that assistance.

Ultimately, we all deserve educational opportunity. It is my promise to you and to our community that we will work diligently to maintain access to quality education for you and for future generations.
