Students transferring to JCTC

I've applied. What's next?

  • A transfer student is any student with previous college credit, other than college credit earned while still in high school and other than credit earned at Jefferson Community and Technical College.

Apply for Financial Aid (Optional)

  • You must apply as EARLY as possible in order for your aid application to be processed on time. 
  • You should try to have your financial aid file completed 8 weeks before the semester begins. 
  • The process for all financial aid (grants, loans, and scholarships) begins when you complete the “Free Application for Federal Student Aid”.
  • You will need the school code:  006961.
  • If you have already completed a financial aid application for the current year, you will need to add JCTC’s school code to it. 

Turn in all official, final transcripts from all previously attended colleges/universities

**Beginning in Summer 2015, Jefferson will no longer allow transfer students to be conditionally admitted during their first semester.  Students must turn in all final transcripts before registration will be permitted.

  • Your Admission file is considered incomplete until all official, final transcripts have been received.
  • You will receive an email when your Admission file is completed.  This email will also explain your registration options.
  • The placement test MAY BE required unless you:
    • submit official transcripts showing you have successfully completed college level English and math classes from a regionally accredited college or university
    • OR  have sufficient ACT scores
  • More information is available on the Assessment Center’s homepage.

Register for classes:

  • Registration is available through your student self-service, via email, or in-person. 
  • You can check the registration calendar for in-person registration and advising dates.
  • We strongly recommend meeting with an advisor but this is not required. 
  • To make an appointment with an advisor, contact the Advising Center at 

KCTCS E-mail access:

  • A student gets email access 24-48 hours (2 business days; weekends and holidays are excluded) AFTER enrolling in a regular college credit class. 
  • Before that they have access to student self-service (aka PeopleSoft or PS).

Pay for your classes by the deadline:

  • Pay by cash, credit card, payment plan, or financial aid. 
    Pay in person or online by the deadline to avoid late fees or other penalties.
    You can view payment information including deadlines on the Bursar’s Office homepage.
