New Student Orientation




Step #1: Complete the new student steps.

Attention Dual Credit Students:
Currently enrolled dual credit students planning to attend JJC on a full or part-time basis after high school are required to submit a new online application and select "traditional student". (Completing the new application will change their status from dual credit to their proper program of study while attending Joliet Junior College.) It is required that dual credit students attend a New Student Orientation session in order to receive critical information about college programs, services, and resources that will support student success:

Attention Student Athletes:
New Student Athletes are those students that have already signed their letter of intent with the Athletic Department. If you have questions regarding your status as JJC Student-Athlete contact Stephanie Kneip, (815) 280-2431. Student-Athletes will have access to New Student Orientation dates for student-athletes only. Student-Athletes must attend one New Student Orientation. There are several New Student Orientations  scheduled for student-athletes. Follow the prompt on Step #3 for Student-Athlete New Student Orientations.

Attention ALL NEW Undecided Students

If you are still deciding on a major then you are in luck, because JJC has a great opportunity for you! A Career Planning Session will help you learn about:

  • The career exploration process and available resources
  • The importance of self-assessment including interests, personality, and values
  • How to research occupational fields and what questions to ask
  • How to get experience and verify if a field is right for you
  • Getting motivated and developing a plan of action 

** NEW Undecided students are expected to contact Career Services to schedule a one hour Career Planning Session before Fall 2016 classes begin. These sessions will be held before and after New Student Orientations for your convenience. If you are unable to attend a designated time please inquire about scheduling an individual Career Planning Appointment with a Career Advisor. Contact: Career Services Center, A-1175, (815) 280-2756 or
