The session is perfect for first-time and returning adult students as well as anyone with questions about the resources available in the new Campus Center, where services have become more streamlined and student-centered.

  • financial aid
  • counseling
  • library resources
  • academic programs
  • transfer programs

“JJC Connect is a great program to all types of students,” says JJC student Patty Esparza. “If you’re overwhelmed with the process and you don’t know where to start [JJC Connect] gives you a chance to get all of your questions answered and to get involved with the college.”

A variety of topics will be covered ranging from financial resources to how to be a successful transfer student. A student panel will be there to discuss academic transition and involvement in the college.
