About Joliet Junior College

Founded in 1901, Joliet Junior College is the nation’s first public community college. From humble beginnings at Joliet Township High School to a collective six campuses and education centers that serves approximately 30,000 students each year, JJC has been shaped by the community in which it resides. The halls echo with the footsteps of thousands of students that have benefitted from JJC’s student focused approach to education, from the industrial age of the 1900s to today’s technology-driven era. Innovative programs, engaging clubs and organizations and successful athletics programs have established JJC as an institution of first choice and continue to attract new generations of Wolves.
