    The JJC Admissions Office must have the following:
    • Your high school transcript or equivalency record (GED, HISET or TASC)

    • All of your eligible test scores


    If you're in high school or are a recent high school graduate, ask your high school to email these records to admissions@jjc.edu or mail them to:

    Attn: Admissions
    1215 Houbolt Rd
    Joliet, IL 60431

    If you are still in high school, a current copy of your transcript is acceptable.

  • Pay for Classes (if applicable)

    We don't want to lose you! So to make sure you stay registered for classes, you must pay your bill on time. Please note:

    • A bill will be mailed to your address on file and sent to your JJC email address
    • If you have not completed your financial aid file by the priority deadline, you may have to pay for classes to secure your schedule. You could be eligible for a refund once your financial aid processes. Eligible refunds will be processed quicker if a student signs up for direct deposit
    • Make your payment via MyJJC.
    • Learn about payment plans.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • FAQ's

    Can I take a tour of the campus?

    There are many ways to Schedule A Visit to JJC. We encourage new students to visit us and learn more about our campus.

    How do I submit my eligible ACT or SAT scores? 

    Visit the ACT website and request that ACT scores be sent to Joliet Junior College Admissions Office (1215 Houbolt Rd. Joliet, IL 60431).

    Visit the College Board website and request that SAT scores be sent to Joliet Junior College Admissions Office (1215 Houbolt Rd. Joliet, IL 60431).

    I took Advanced Placement (AP) courses in high school. How can I use my AP credit at JJC?

    Request that official AP scores be sent by the CollegeBoard to the JJC Registrar's Office and submit a Transcript Evaluation Form. Your AP credit will be evaluated and posted to your JJC transcript within 4-6 weeks. If you have AP credit that has not posted yet or you are awaiting exam scores, please inform your Advisor during your first semester advising session. Pending AP credit will likely impact first semester classes that your Advisor recommends.

    Can I use accommodations on the placement test?

    Placement testing is not timed and can be taken at different times and days. If you feel you may need additional accommodations on the placement test, please contact Disability Services to discuss what accommodations are needed.
