Registration Information

There are several ways to register for courses at JJC – in person, telephone, during a group advising session (required by new full-time students), or MyJJC. You can register for Fall, Spring or Summer.

Priority Registration

Priority Registration allows students who are currently enrolled in credit courses, in the prior semester (excluding Summer), to register before the General Registration date.

  • Students using Online Registration for any semester must have an active JJC email account.
  • Priority Registration will be through eResources only.

Students who have Restrictions or Financial obligations or who have withdrawn from all current semester classes are not eligible.

Student transfer hours from other institutions will count toward the total number of hours used to determine which priority registration section the student qualifies. In order for transfer hours to be evaluated in time for priority registration students must complete the steps outlined on the transcript evaluation before March 1 for Fall and September 1 for Spring. No exceptions will be made for transcripts turned in for evaluation after the deadline dates.

Any questions about the transcript evaluation process please contact the Academic Credentials Office by email at or by calling by phone at 815-280-2803.

All other inquiries about Priority Registration should be directed to the Registration Office, in A-1020 or

General Registration

General Registration is for students who are attending JJC for the first time, who are not currently enrolled but have previously attended JJC and are resuming studies and for students who are transferring from another college or university.

Important Reminder: Once you have registered for your classes you will need to pay for them before the deadlines. See the payment information page, for the semester in which you are enrolled, for more information.

Every class has its own refund and drop date. Please visit the refund policy page for more information on withdrawal, refunds and appeals.
