Student Right-to-Know 

Joliet Junior College is pleased to provide the following information regarding our institution's graduation/completion and transfer-out rates. The information is provided in compliance with the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. The rates reflect the graduation, completion and transfer-out status of students who enrolled during the 2009-10 school year and for whom 150% of the normal time-to-completion has elapsed.  

During the 2009 fall semester 1,157 first-time, full-time, certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students entered Joliet Junior College. After 3 years 11% of these students had graduated from our institution or completed their programs and 35% had transferred to other higher education institutions prior to completing.  The percentage of JJC students catergorized as successful (completed, transferred, or still enrolled) was higher that that for the state as a whole (61% of JJC student in rerlation to 60% 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 so does not keep separate Student-Right-To-Know statistics on athletes.
