Student-Athlete Retention 


All current and incoming JJC student-athletes are encouraged to contact the Student-Athlete Retention Specialists, who works to improve academic success and retention of student-athletes at Joliet Junior College.

The Student-Athlete Retention Specialists offer support by providing guidance to athletes transferring to four year schools, tracking student progress while working as a liaison between athletic teams and professors, and assisting reverse transfers entering JJC. The retention specialists also collaborate with the Counseling Department to assist athletes with appropriate class selection.

Through the retention specialists, athletes are notified of workshops, study sessions, tutoring opportunities and other services on campus that may be beneficial to their academic success. Services are offered by appointment or on a walk-in basis.
