Jefferson Community and Technical College (JCTC) sets itself apart from the other two-year community and technical colleges in the state of Kentucky by offering accelerated learning as well as open admissions. Any Kentucky resident who wants to further his or her education can receive education and training at a considerably competitive cost. In addition to the various certificate, degree, and associate’s degree programs at the school, there are also intercollegiate sports and a number of extracurricular activities that lend themselves to the feel of a more traditional college experience.


Located in Louisville, Kentucky, JCTC is an easy commute not just for those who are living in Louisville, but also for prospective students from the surrounding area. As a fully accredited community college, it is an excellent choice for anyone who is in need not just of excellent training and education, but also of extensive financial assistance on both a state and a federal level. Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the student body at JCTC consists of over 14,000 first-time college students, as well as those who are deciding to go back to school to learn the skills needed to further one’s education or simply to change careers. The school is a part of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, and has been offering degrees and learning since 2005.

Students attending JCTC have their choice of more than 300 different options when it comes to both technical and academic learning. Full-time students can expect to earn an associate degree in two years of attending classes full-time, and can opt for either the traditional course of study, with weekday classes, or a combination of weekday classes and evening offerings.

In addition to longer courses of study for associate and diploma degrees, this school also offers a number of certificates, many of which can be earned in as little as a single semester or two semesters of study. The certificate programs are more focused towards the technical fields, which are oriented towards industry training. These courses are taught by skilled professionals who, in addition to offering instruction, can offer insight into their chosen fields and what is required to quickly find employment upon completing the certificate program.

Most Popular Fields of Study


With their open admissions policy, JCTC offers the chance to students regardless of previous educational experience. This means that students who might not necessarily have the requirements needed for other two-year colleges can find a home here. Students interested in attending should complete and submit an admissions form, and be sure to include either their GED or high school diploma, as well as a high school transcript. For anyone who has already earned course hours at another institution, it is recommended that a college transcript also be submitted. This can sometimes earn credit hours and shorten the amount of time that one needs to spend attending in order to complete a degree or certificate program.

Financial Aid

As a fully accredited two-year college, students have the option of receiving both state and federal financial aid. Students who require assistance with the financial aid process should make an appointment at the financial aid office, where counselors are available to assist in any step of the financial aid process. This is particularly helpful in completing the FAFSA correctly on the first attempt, and that is the most common service offered by the financial aid office. Additionally, students can receive information on scholarships, grants, and other forms of financial aid available depending on need or other qualifications.
