JJC is a great junior college to begin your education! Not only are the professors amazing, there are so many classes, and they have a great administration. There are so many resources for students to use and the campus is great. The only downside to JJC is out of the schools control; many students do not take class seriously. Many are always on their phones or talking. Another great thing about JJC is the online classes. The online classes are easy and organized. A great college with great prices I would recommend to anyone!

Attending Joliet Junior College for many years now I have experienced the student life of financial aid, admissions, documentation, and registration. Based on the tuition required to attend Joliet Junior College I thought was fairly a good price. The courses they off are double compared to universities and the academics of material learned can be attained through more time one on one with the teachers. They are very approachable and have many office hours to get a hold of them. However, a lot of the teachers are adjunct so they are not certainly available on campus. The teaching skills of the subject I feel need a lot of work. Depending on the teacher you could have a good teacher or an uneducated one. Most of the time a lot of the teachers want to deepen your knowledge and have you learn. The curriculum of some subjects I feel from the department is irrelevant but the with the low tuition based prices at this community college you definitely receive what you are paying for. There is a lot on campus activities to get more involved so meeting all different sorts of people is always a plus. I would recommend students to attend Joliet Junior College because I have pursued my Associates degree on a lower tuition than I would at a University that requires the same courses. Overall I enjoyed this college and ready to being my Bachelors in Biology!

I love the online classes! They program is so easy to use, and very cool. It's got tutoring, tips for studying, and an already set up breakdown of the text. The learning process was so simple and it really was cool. I only recommend taking online courses for subjects you are devoted to and/or are already knowledgable about because if it is brand new, you may struggle with learning the material yourself.
