Application Deadlines

Students who plan to enter a degree, diploma, or certificate program should complete and submit a JCC application. To provide adequate time for the processing of application materials and any additional documents prior to the start of classes, priority dates are identified for each semester. Applications to Johnston Community College can be completed online via or in-person at our main campus.

Students who submit all required paperwork by the priority application deadline can expect:

  • To be admitted to the college.
  • To prepare for and take the placement testing if required.
  • To attend an orientation session and meet with an academic advisor.
  • To receive adequate time to plan, select, and register for classes.

The college will continue to process paperwork after the priority application deadline. However, to increase the likelihood of completing the enrollment process, the college highly encourages students to submit all paperwork by the priority application deadline.
