President's Message

Welcome to Johnston Community College!

Dr. Vern Lindquist

Hey Jaguar! We are thrilled to have you pursue your education at JCC.

Whether you are obtaining your high school equivalency, training to enter the skilled workforce, or working on your associate’s degree on your way to a four-year institution, we are here for you. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to your success.

JCC is located in the fastest-growing county in North Carolina and we are growing right alongside it. You will now find more classes at our Cleveland Center location, more flexible offerings at our main campus, and other learning opportunities at our Howell Woods Environmental Learning Center in Four Oaks.

JCC offers more than 35 academic and workforce programs, and numerous continuing education classes. Though we serve approximately 13,000 students each year, we remain dedicated to quality instruction and personal service and support.

JCC is committed to student success. Our affordable tuition, open-door admissions policy, small class sizes, and experienced faculty contribute to one of the best values in higher education. Combine that with our student organizations, NJCAA athletics, and special events, and you’ll find that JCC offers the complete college experience.

Thank you for choosing JCC. We are glad you’re here and excited to see where you are going!
