Jamestown Community College offers nearly 40 degree programs and over 20 certificate programs targeted at three main types of students. There are transfer degree programs that are great for students seeking a baccalaureate degree. Students may essentially complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree at a much lower cost and then transfer to a 4-year university or college in order to complete the final two years. Since JCC is part of the SUNY network, the college has transfer agreements with many schools within the SUNY network as well as independent institutions.

The second group of students that may benefit from an associate degree from Jamestown are those who would like to begin working immediately following graduation. An associate degree or vocational certificate will open doors to professional positions not available to those without an education and the earning potential is much higher. Also, many students earn this type of associate degree so that they may obtain better paying jobs while they are pursuing a bachelor’s degree.

Finally, the college provides an opportunity for students who would like to take just a course or group of courses for personal or professional enrichment. The school is open to all members of the community who wish to pursue this type of education as long as prerequisites such as a high school diploma are met. Some courses do require proof of other skill sets and placement testing.

Most Popular Fields of Study


JCC has an open enrollment policy. The only requirements for admission are graduation from an accredited high school or possession of a high-school equivalency diploma and acceptable scores on the American College Testing Assessment Tests. SAT or ACT scores aren’t required. The school has a rolling admissions policy, which means that admissions decision are made shortly after completed application packets are received. Although the school accepts applications right up until the start of class, it’s recommended that application packets be submitted at least 2 weeks prior. Students wishing to receive financial aid will also need to complete the FAFSA.

Full-time degree seeking students must complete the application and testing processes and be accepted into a program. After a student has either taken the placement test or received exemption from testing, an Individual Student Advisement session must be scheduled. After that, an academic advisory meeting will be scheduled so that the student may discuss test scores and register for courses.

Part-time degree seeking students need to complete the same application and testing process but won’t need to schedule the ISA session. Registration may be completed directly at the registrar’s office at either the Jamestown campus or at the business office on the Cattaraugus County Campus. For students who need assistance registering or developing a course schedule, counselors are available at either campus.

Students who simply wish to take a few courses for personal or professional enrichment are still required to take placement tests for any courses that have a reading or writing prerequisite, though some students will still qualify for the exemption. After testing, all that’s required is registration.

Financial Aid

JCC’s financial aid office works to build an optimal package suited to each student’s needs. There are merit-based and need-based scholarships, grants, federally/subsidized loans and work-study programs. In order to begin the financial aid process, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) that’s available online starting in January.

In addition to standard forms of financial aid, there are also scholarships available to specific types of students such as transfer students, veterans, students with disabilities, students with exceptional grades, and other groups.
