Early Entry Admissions

Student Studying Outside

 Early entry may be available to students 17 years of age or younger who obtain prior approval from their high school. Students should confer with their High School counselor on the process. Early entry applications can be obtained through their high school counselor, the Admissions Office in the Campus Center, room A-1020, or the Administrative Office at Romeoville Campus in room NC-01. They must be submitted to the Admissions Office at Main Campus in order to be reviewed.

Steps to Apply for Early Entry Students:

Students interested in participating in the early entry program must complete the following steps no later than 14 days prior to the 1st day of the semester in which the student wishes to attend.

  1. The early entry program should be discussed with the high school counselor to determine if it is right for the student, and for assistance in selecting courses at JJC.
  2. Complete an early entry form.
  3. Complete a JJC application.

JJC may request, at its discretion, to interview any applicant for the Early Entry Program. If this occurs, the department requesting the interview will contact the student directly to make arrangements. Placement testing may be required at the discretion of the department chairperson or the appropriate dean.
