Advising and Registration

Note: If you have already attended an advising appointment and received a printed copy of your schedule, you do not need an appointment to make changes to your schedule. Please contact the CCP Center for schedule changes.

Academic Advisors at Johnston Community College help students develop their academic plans and class schedules as well as inform them about college processes and academic procedures. An academic advisor will also answer questions about a student’s academic and career pathway.  All students are required to meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for their college courses.  Parents are welcome to attend with their student, but may not serve as a substitute for their student at an academic advising and registration session. It is imperative that a student actively participate in an academic advising appointment, establish a relationship with his/her advisor, and begin to understand the benefits and challenges of the college experience.

It is important that students read and follow instructions related to registering for Fall 2018 classes: 

  • All NEW CCP students are required to meet with an academic advisor at JCC. This is regardless of whether students desire to take a class at JCC, online or at their high school.  Students are required to schedule an advising appointment through the Appointment Plus scheduling system (see instructions below).
  • Returning or continuing CCP students who want to take a class at JCC or online are required to meet with an academic advisor at JCC.  Students are required to schedule an advising appointment through the Appointment Plus scheduling system (see instructions below).
  • Returning or continuing CCP students who want to take a class only at their high school are required to meet with a JCC academic advisor by making an appointment for one of the advising sessions listed below.

Important Notes:
Only Career and College Promise (CCP) students who have received their acceptance letter from JCC are eligible to schedule an advising appointment through the Appointment Plus system.  This acceptance letter will include a JCC student identification number that is needed to schedule an advising appointment. New CCP students are required to enter their JCC student ID number into the Appointment Plus system to schedule an advising appointment. Students who have not been admitted should not schedule or attend an advising session. Advising appointments created by students who have not been accepted will be cancelled.

Note: Students must only schedule an advising appointment with an advisor in their pathway.
