JCCC College Now Enrollment Guide

Now is a great time to start to prepare for fall College Now enrollment. The College Now class schedule will be available online on Aug 9. Here are two important reminders:

  1. Apply – First-time College Now students will need to apply for admission, so why not get this done early! Please select ‘Summer/Fall’ application term if you are planning to take College Now classes this fall.
  2. Fulfill Placement Requirements (ex., English, math, science, etc.) To determine if a placement test is required for your course, go to jccc.edu/collegenow, and click the See Class Schedules and Counselors link to look up available courses for your high school. If a prerequisite or test score is required for your class, it will be noted.

    To assist students, we offer several pathways for students who need to enroll in courses that have a placement test requirement. For information on how to meet the placement requirements for your College Now course, go to jccc.edu/collegenow. Click the See the College Now Enrollment Guide link, then click Learn More About Placement button to see the placement requirements needed for your course.

    If you have not taken the Accuplacer but meet the placement requirements with a qualifying ACT score, click the Upload Test Scores button. If you have a qualifying unweighted high school GPA, click the Upload High School Transcript button. If you do not have a qualifying ACT score, HS GPA or AP test score, click the Schedule Accuplacer Test button to schedule an appointment to take the Accuplacer placement test at JCCC. You will still need to enroll in the class after your placement waiver is issued or after you test and earn a qualifying score.

We have attached the College Now Enrollment Guide for High School Students to help you get started. Check out the College Now website with FAQs to answer all your questions.

Fall College Now enrollment will begin on Aug 21!
