  1. Learn all of your options: Decide which JJC program you will pursue. Consider enrolling in a GSD 100 College Success course.
  2. Decide upon a major: Access career planning resources ASAP and consider enrolling in a GSD 110 Career and Lifestyle Planning course.
  3. Access JJC Transfer Resources: Explore both campus based and online transfer resources.
  4. Select a transfer school: Attend college fairs, meet with visiting recruiters, visit campuses and explore college websites.
