Campus Safety

At Joliet Junior College the safety of our faculty, staff, students and guests is our highest priority. The JJC Campus Police Department, Office of the Dean of Students, Counseling Department and the Environmental Health & Safety Department work together closely to make sure that your student’s experience at JJC is as safe as possible. It is important to remember that as new members of the JJC community, you too play a major part in making sure that this is a safe campus.

Coordinated Community Response Team (CCRT) The Coordinate Community Response Team (CCRT) consists of representatives from Counseling, the JJC Police Department, and The Office of the Dean of Students, Holistic Wellness and Human Resources / Title IX to provide coordination of services that address domestic and dating violence, stalking and sexual assault for students, staff and faculty at JJC.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

FERPA is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. These rights transfer to a student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends school beyond the high school level regardless of age. Review JJC's FERPA policy regarding the privacy of student records. (link to new page for FERPA)

A student may grant access to their academic record by submitting a signed Permission to Release Information form to the Records Office (A-1020).
