College & Career Readiness


The Office of College and Career Readiness (CCR) advances the student development vision and leadership required to achieve student learning, student development, and student success. CCR encompasses developmental education, dual credit, first-year experience, Title III program administration, and the Romeoville Campus.


Developmental Education
  • Developmental education classes are fee-based classes numbered below the 100 level.
  • These classes provide students with knowledge and skills that help them to achieve academic, professional, and personal growth through high quality instruction and academic support services.

Dual Credit
  • The Dual Credit program is a partnership between Joliet Junior College and area high schools and career centers.
  • This program allows students to earn both high school and college credit upon successful completion of a dual credit course.

For more information, visit the Dual Credit page.


First Year Experience
  • First Year Experience (FYE) supports new and continuing students with under 30 credit hours, and is there for you at new student orientation and beyond.
  • Working with many JJC departments, FYE offers workshops, lunches, and events focused on helping you adjust to college life and meet your educational goals.

Title III Program Administration

Joliet Junior College has received a $2.1 million Title III grant from the U.S. Department of Education under the Strengthening Institutions Program, which will help the college fulfill its goal of improving student engagement, achievement, persistence and completion. The grant is to be dispersed over five years (October 2015 through September 2020).
