CJA students

The Academic Advisement Center (AAC) is excited to partner with you as you make the transition from your community college to your first semester at John Jay College and beyond. 

Once your transfer credits have been evaluated, you will be emailed detailed instructions on how to schedule a mandatory academic advisement appointment. Please note, a wait time in between your confirmation and invitation to schedule an advisement appointment is completely normal.  

Advisement and registration for the fall semester begins early May
Advisement and registration for the spring semeter begins early December

During your academic advisement appointment, we will work together to identify first semester course options, making careful recommendations based on what you already earned credit for through your community college Associate degree program.  An academic advisor will also share information about degree requirements, major advising, online advising tools, registration tips, and opportunities at John Jay.  

You are encouraged to get a head start by reviewing key advisement information on the following PDF pages.  This information will help you prepare questions for your advising appointment and make confident decisions about how you want to spend your time at John Jay.  Note: whenever you see a blue link, click to learn more!

At any point in your transition process, you are welcome to contact your CJA advisor.
