Academics
Jefferson Community College offers a variety of programs that allow students to pursue the academic or career track that best suits their interests. Academic transfer is accomplished by completing the first two years of a four year education, followed by applying to transfer to a four year college or university to continue one's education, eventually earning a bachelor's degree. Transfer to SUNY institutions are made easier through agreements in place that allow for ease of transfer, though it is possible to apply to private and out of state schools. Individuals should meet with a counselor to outline a transfer curriculum that best suits the student's interest.

Career training programs allow individuals to receive an education in a specific field designed to prepare them for entry into the workforce as qualified professionals. Programs take between one and two years to complete, resulting in a certificate or associate degree that demonstrates one's competency in the chosen field. Students will participate in traditional and practical courses, with practical courses providing a forum for training and development through supervised practice in a controlled environment.

Admissions and Financial Aid
Jefferson Community College is an open enrollment institution that makes the process for admission easy and available for all individuals.

Students are also encouraged to meet with a counselor to discuss program enrollment and curriculum as well as participate in new student orientation to familiarize themselves with the campus.

Financial aid is available in the form of loans, grants and scholarships. Students in need of financial assistance must complete the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the information from which will be used by the school to determine the extent of a student's need and aid program eligibility when constructing his or her aid packet. Financial aid must be reapplied for prior to each academic year, and students may be chosen at random to provide additional financial information to be compared to the FAFSA in order to ensure its accuracy as part of new regulations governing aid distribution.
