Faculty members from JJC’s academic programs will be on hand to meet potential students and their families, talk about degree and certificate programs, and answer questions.

“It is a great opportunity to not only come out and see the campus, but also to speak directly to the academic department that you are interested in,” said JJC Recruitment Specialist Sue Callans. ”Our programs can lead students directly to employment or successful transfer to a four-year school.”

In addition to the outstanding quality of its programs, affordability is a key reason many students choose JJC, which ranks 14th out of 16 peer colleges in Illinois for lowest tuition. JJC’s current tuition rate is $115 per credit hour.

Attendees are invited to take self-guided tours of Main Campus and visit the various departments, where representatives will be available to explain and showcase their programs.

  • Welcome from JJC President Dr. Debra Daniels: 9:10 a.m., cafeteria
