Frequently Asked Questions

  • FAQ's

    Can I take a tour of the campus?

    There are many ways to Schedule A Visit to JJC. We encourage new students to visit us and learn more about our campus.

    How do I submit my eligible ACT or SAT scores? 

    Visit the ACT website and request that ACT scores be sent to Joliet Junior College Admissions Office (1215 Houbolt Rd. Joliet, IL 60431).

    Visit the College Board website and request that SAT scores be sent to Joliet Junior College Admissions Office (1215 Houbolt Rd. Joliet, IL 60431).

    I took Advanced Placement (AP) courses in high school. How can I use my AP credit at JJC?

    Request that official AP scores be sent by the CollegeBoard to the JJC Registrar's Office and submit a Transcript Evaluation Form. Your AP credit will be evaluated and posted to your JJC transcript within 4-6 weeks. If you have AP credit that has not posted yet or you are awaiting exam scores, please inform your Advisor during your first semester advising session. Pending AP credit will likely impact first semester classes that your Advisor recommends.

    Can I use accommodations on the placement test?

    Placement testing is not timed and can be taken at different times and days. If you feel you may need additional accommodations on the placement test, please contact Disability Services to discuss what accommodations are needed.”
