During the 2014 fall semester 943 first-time, full-time, certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students entered Joliet Junior College. After 3 years 16% of these students had graduated from our institution or completed their programs and 28% had transferred to other higher education institutions prior to completing. The percentage of JJC students categorized as successful (completed, transferred, or still enrolled) was lower than for the state as a whole (59 percent of JJC students compared with 62 percent statewide).

While reviewing this information, please bear in mind:
Graduation and transfer-out rates are based on 3 years of attendance that equates to 150% of our longest program.
Graduation (and transfer-out) rates do not include students who left the school to serve in the armed forces, on official church missions, or in the foreign service of the federal government. Students who died or were totally and permanently disabled are also excluded.
Three years is a relatively short time period for community college students, many students also work full-time or part-time. Students may change enrollment status from full-time to part-time, may leave school temporarily for work or family reasons, may change their mind regarding program of study, or may require developmental coursework upon admission, factors that may tend to delay events like graduation or transfer.
JJC does not offer athletically based scholarships and therefore does not keep separate Student-Right-To-Know statistics on athletes.
Net Price Calculator
In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), beginning on October 29, 2011, each postsecondary institution in the United State that participates in Title IV federal student aid programs must post a net price calculator on its website that uses institutional data to provide estimated net price information to current and prospective students and their families based on a student's individual circumstances.
We know that college costs are a concern for many parents and students, and we provide this Net Price Calculator to help you estimate the types of financial aid you might receive if you enroll at Joliet Junior College. It's a good place to start, but we encourage you to talk to us throughout the financial aid process.
Consider this a starting point, but remember that all our financial aid awards are made based on many factors only seen through your application for financial aid.
