What Students Are Saying

3.08 Average Rating
get your hard classes out of the way as soon as possible so you can enjoy the rest of your schooling there. if your interested in photography digital or film there are great classes that can help you improve in that area and over all its the best place to get your associates before you go on to get another degree from there or somewhere else

be nice!

If you are a high school student, I would highly recommend begining to take classes at JCCC through your school now because the more credits you can get in ahead of time, the better. If you are considering transferring for whatever reason, I would also strongly recommend it. The classes are laid back enough to where the teachers do not stress you with an impossible workload, however, you learn just as much as you would at a four-year college - for half the price.
Jennifer from Shawnee, KS
If you are unsure where life is taking you or what you want to do for the rest of your life, JCCC offers so much diversity and options. Not to mention it is less expensive than a 4-year university! Even if you have a grasp on what your future holds, the professors of the general education courses are fantastic, some of the best I have witnessed, and I guarantee you will be getting a grade A education!
Kristian from Spring Hill, KS
Just make sure that you know what classes you would like to take before you enroll. The general studies classes generally tend to fill up on the first day of enrollment so be an early bird! You can also call and make an appointment with any of the counselors who will help you if you need advice! (I'm basically best friends with many of the counselors here). Do not be afraid to sign up for a couple of summer classes as well if you need some extra classes for another school or anything like that!

1) Enrollment-Decide what classes you want to take before enrollment starts. General Education classes with good teachers and convinient time slots fill up early. So have the class numbers ready at 7:59 AM and call the school and try enrolling online at 8:00 AM. You may be on hold for a long time or your call won't go through but stay persistant. You will get the classes you want, at the time you want, and with who you want if you keep trying.
2) Get involved! Take advantage of the center for student involvement and get involved at the school. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful. You will make friends. There is nothing to lose!
3) Utilize the resource centers- The math resource center has tutors for free, same with the science resource center and the writing center. All three have tools to help you succeed.
4) Apply for the general scholarship- it is a pain free, 5 minute application. You answer basic questions about race, GPA, income, etc. The school doesn't take extra strides to advertise the application so many students don't know about it. So your chances of receiving a scholarship are increased.
Gabrielle from Overland Park, KS
Get involved in sports or clubs if you have the time.
Cecilia from Overland Park, KS
Don't expect this to be how a university will be. Much more relaxed, but a great way for students who are not exactly ready to go to school to get their feet wet, especially older students.
Kristine from Olathe, KS
Just relax and take a few deep breaths. JCCC is a great school to start out at to get the general feel of college. It is a great way to be in college, while having the fun of high school. JCCC has helped me so much and i greatful for my time there
