This is a GREAT place to get started if you are planning to go on to a four year college or university. It's a wonderful learning environment! Also, JJC has well respected Associate of Applied Science programs that allow you to streamline into a career (Nursing, Vet Tech, Phlebotomy, etc...)!! That's what I'm doing.

    Great starter school for students that are undecided on a major or university. You can save thousands of dollars beginning your first two years at JJC because tuition is very affordable. Along with the several transferable credits, there is an amazingly caring staff here that truly care about your educational success.

    JJC is an awesome choice for people who either want to save some money by taking gen eds or for those who just need to acquire a certificate. They have a variety of programs to choose from and tons of resources. You have to be proactive, because they treat you like a college student and you need to be the one who asks for help if needed.

    Jjc is a midway point from high school and university. Counsolers are great, student activities are fun, and there are always people to help you.

    JJC is a great school to attend for students who want to lower the cost of their education or students who do not know what they want to do. The school has saved me a lot of money on my general education courses, and I would highly recommend going there if you live nearby either before you go to a four-year or just to get an Associate's degree. I have never had any problems with an unfriendly staff member or fellow student there.

    I would rate Joliet Junior College an A, they offer everything that I would expect out of a college. The staff around campus is very helpful and I have had many great teachers during my time here. One thing that I love about JJC is the flexible schedules, they offer so many different class times which makes it very convenient if you are trying to work around a schedule.

    Joliet Junior College is a very good school for those just graduating and have no clue what to major in. Professors will stop at nothing to help you excel and teach the material to the best of their ability. It is a great size for those who need a little extra push on transition into college from high school or who are returning to school.

    JJC is a great school to attend whether you are freshly out of high school or returning to school as a seasoned adult. There are plenty of sections to choose from during both traditional day classes, as well as evening classes. This may be the oldest public junior college in the United States, but they are very up to date in their technology services, and getting better.
