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 needed.
  • 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.

As a returning student, we may have your transcripts on file. Please check with the Admissions office to determine if we have the needed transcripts.

Send all your official high school and/or college transcripts to:

Johnston Community College
Admissions and Student Engagement
P.O. Box 2350
Smithfield, NC 27577

You must submit your official high school transcript unless you have already graduated with an associate's degree or higher. In this instance, your official transcript from that college or university will be enough.

If you have attended another college or university, in many cases, the college transcript is not required for admission. However, without exception, you must submit official transcripts from previously attended institutions if you:

  • Wish to receive transfer credits toward your degree
  • Plan to apply to a medical program
  • Will apply for Veterans Benefits
  • Will play NJCAA athletics

Notes: *High School students that meet RISE Multiple Measures GPA criteria (at the end of the Fall term of their senior year) will be held until final grades are released and transcripts are sent from their High School during the spring term.

**If the original copy of your transcript is written in a non-English language, a certified English translation is required.

First, check to see if your Self-Service Account is still active. Depending on the length of separation from the college, you may still have access. You will need to reset the password if you have forgotten it.

If the account is not currently active, your username is set up within 48 hours after completing an application. Your welcome letter will have instructions on how to activate your e-mail, WebAdvisor, and Blackboard accounts, which allow you to communicate with us and for you to receive important information related to admissions, financial aid, advising, and registration.

Check your e-mail on a daily basis. This is the college’s official form of communication. A hard copy may not be sent in the mail.

We encourage all students to apply for financial aid. To begin the process, you should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Johnston Community College's school code is 009336.

Check for general scholarships at AcademicWorks. For more on the types of aid available and how to apply for them, visit the Financial Aid website.

Placement tests are mandatory unless you qualify for a placement testing waiver using the RISE placement measures. As a readmit student, placement testing will be waived if you already have placement test scores on file or have successfully completed college-level English and/or college Algebra. Admissions will review your college transcripts to determine if you need to take the Placement test and you will be notified of your next step through the email from your application for admission.

Once admitted students will receive a link via email to complete their JCC Connect Session. This session will be completed online and will help new students to connect with campus resources and their student accounts.

Meet with an academic advisor. Your advisor's name and office location is located on your counseling summary form. Your adviser will review your program of study, career goals, and suggest courses for the upcoming term. Make your appointment with your advisor on Appointment-plus.

Prepare for your advising session by reviewing the Advising Syllabus.

You will log in to Self-Service to complete your course registration on or after your activation date.
