Lifelong Learning

From photography to cooking and puppy training to beekeeping, our non-credit classes provide fun learning experiences.

Welcome to Joliet Junior College's Lifelong Learning Program!

Explore classes designed to provide a multitude of learning opportunities.

Students of all ages enroll in lifelong learning classes to enrich their minds, explore new talents and keep up with today's constantly changing technologies. Many enjoy the more relaxed atmosphere of non-credit classes as they focus on gaining a skill without the pressure of grades.

Classes are set during the day, evenings and Saturdays to accommodate the busy schedules of today's families.
