Funding is available for 2022 Johnston County high school graduates who want to enroll at JCC.

Funds are available from the JoCo Commissioners Promise for 2022 high school graduates who want to attend Johnston Community College (JCC) this Spring.

In July, County Commissioners approved the use of $250,000 to fund the initiative which covers the cost of tuition for graduates of a Johnston County high school during the 2022-23 school year. Eligible students are responsible for the costs of textbooks, supplies, and program-specific fees.

Spring 2023 Priority Registration begins November 1, 2022. Classes begin January 6, 2023.

Interested students must meet eligibility requirements, apply to JCC, and fill out their FAFSA forms. For details, visit:
