Special Credit/Visiting Student
If you plan on taking a course or courses to transfer to the college or university where you are a student or if you don’t plan on earning a degree or certificate, and plan to take credit classes for personal or professional enrichment, you are a special credit/visiting student. Follow the enrollment steps below.
Be sure to check the special credit box under Programs of Study. You can also stop by the Student Success Center (Tart Building room D101) to complete the residency determination and application at one of our computer kiosks.
You will receive an email that confirms that your application has been received and provides instructions for the next steps in your enrollment process.
Official transcripts are not required. However, placement tests scores or high school/college transcripts will need to be provided if a student wishes to take a course with a prerequisite. You can bring the transcript(s) to the Admissions office or send to the address below.
Send all your transcripts to:
Johnston Community College
Admissions and Student Engagement
P.O. Box 2350
Smithfield, NC 27577
Transcripts must remain sealed in the envelope to be considered official.
Note: If the original copy of your transcript is written in a non-English language, a certified English translation is required.
Your username is set up within 48 hours after completing an application. Your welcome letter will have instructions on how to activate your e-mail, WebAdvisor, and blackboard accounts, which allow you to communicate with us and for you to receive important information related to admissions, financial aid, advising, and registration.
Check your e-mail on a daily basis. This is the college’s official form of communication. A hard copy may not be sent in the mail.
All curriculum programs require a certain level of English language proficiency. Students who are deficient in English are encouraged to take courses in English as a Second Language, which are offered through the college's Adult Basic Education department.
