Come as you are, leave as you want to be
The power of Jamestown Community College is in the diverse education it delivers to students of all ages and backgrounds. Whether you’re ready to jump into the complete college experience, balance a busy schedule and learn on a part-time basis, or take just a class or two, you can reach all of your goals and become the person you want to be at JCC.
As the first locally sponsored community college in the State University of New York system, JCC has a proud and rich history of providing students with a platform to explore their intellectual passions and new directions.
In a 2019 SUNY student opinion survey, JCC ranked in the top five among 26 other New York community colleges in several categories, including:
¯ Acquiring knowledge and skills for a career or further academic study
¯ Availability of internships and other out-of-classroom learning experiences
¯ Developing problem solving skills
¯ Understanding personal ethics and values.
JCC’s affordability provides students several avenues to obtain an education without incurring debt. In fact, one in two JCC graduates leave with no college debt. Whether headed to a job or transferring to a four-year college, students have the advantage of leaving JCC either debt-free or with a minimal impact on their wallets.
An education at JCC takes place in the classroom, on the basketball court, wrestling mat, or soccer field, on the stage, in labs, and through internships and study abroad experiences. It’s the ideal environment for exploring new ideas, thoughts, and ways of doing and being.
JCC offers 39 degrees and 20 certificate programs, all of which provide relevant and substantial pathways to the next stage of one’s journey. JCC provides:
¯ liberal arts and workforce ready courses and programs
¯ classroom and online settings for learning the material that matters most to you
¯ a seamless transition to transfer programs
¯ opportunities to develop and excel in the classroom and community.
You could be a student at JCC’s Jamestown, Dunkirk, or Olean sites or online. At each location, you’ll receive the same level of commitment to student success — from start to finish — that has distinguished JCC for the past 70 years.
