1 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: For music educators there is a test that you take in addition to the classes you take at the college you are transferring from. It is a proficiency that evaluates what you did or did not learn. There is one for music theory and another for ear training. I had a B in both classes at JCJC but I did not pass the ear training portion of the proficiency. I told the ear training teacher that some of the parts on the test we had not seen in class. He said, "I know. The class moved slower than I had expected, so it was not covered." BECAUSE it was not covered I did not pass that section and I now have to take all theory one and two and ear training one and two over again because I was not prepared by the teachers at Jones County Junior College. When I tried to get help from them they would not help me, and when me and my peers told him this he did not accept responsibility. Half of the transfer students failed the ear training portion. I wish there was some form of a penalty for him because I have wasted time with these courses when I was not prepared to advance on. STUDENT BEWARE.

Career Services: These people are to the point and go out of their way to help you. I felt like they really cared about my future.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For general classes, I'd say it is a pretty good experience. I tried getting the most popular teachers, so most of my teachers were older. Make sure you get your course catalogue for your intended major, and be sure to stick to it. A junior college is supposed to be a two year program. Stick to your courses that are required for your major and get out. The more hours you take the less scholarship money will await you when you transfer.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The alumni are very proud to have come from here. There are not any jobs or internships in music education apart from shuffling papers for the the rude secretary Mrs. Harrison. It's not a learning opportunity or something to put on a resume.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The teachers in the music education department are quicker to fail you than to help you. It's like they take pride in watching some of the students struggle. It is not a loving atmosphere.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: During my time at Jones I felt very happy and secure in my studies outside of my major, but the music education program did not prepare me to succeed upon transferring to another school. Some of the teachers take pride in saying, "most of you will fail or drop this class." This is one of the worst things a teacher can brag and say about a class. The theory teacher there does not have available office hours for help with homework, and does not answer questions in class. As for the ear training teacher, he lets his class run wild. These people are not professional. If you are considering going here for music, this may be a waste of your time.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My class schedule is very laid back so far. I did not get a job so anytime for any classes were fine with me.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: The registration process is a first come first serve ordeal. From my experiences it is very calm and organized. It is not hectic and stressful. Unless you wait until the last minute then it will be because most of the classes will be closed.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Everything at Jones County Junior College is credible. With that being said every class and credible you take there is very credible. It is a great school.

Overall Experience: The alumni work vigorously with Jones. They put in a plethora of scholarship money into our foundation scholarship program.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My academic experience is at Jones was very exceptional. They take the time to help you understand things instead of making you work on your own.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Jones County Junior College is one of the best colleges in my opinion. Everyone is very hands on and wants to make sure you succeed in every way possible. JCJC also provides many opportunities to obtain scholarships from other schools.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: It's hard to balance out classes because as a music major i have a lot going on.

2 College Senior

Online Courses: I've taken multiple online classes in my 3 years at Jones and have managed to only scrape by with a C one time... I'm doing alright in my Comp 2 class right now, but that's because all i have to do is write my paper...

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've thoroughly enjoyed majority of my classes at Jones.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The value for a degree isn't very high for me honestly because I will be transferring to obtain my bachelor's elsewhere.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Working and going to school can be very hard, but with my school schedule and work schedule my time is used wisely and I'm very flexible with all of my work.

Online Courses: Having an online class is much different from being in a classroom. You are alone, without peers and a teacher to guide you along the way, but it gives you time to yourself to accomplish your goals.
