Applications are welcome for fall or spring semester admission. Johnson State College has a "rolling admissions" policy, which means we review applications throughout the year, within two or three weeks of receiving the applications and supporting credentials. In considering students for admission to JSC, the Admissions Office looks at a wide range of factors. We start by carefully evaluating each candidate's academic preparation, as reflected in transcripts, course selection, letters of recommendation, SAT or ACT scores, personal essay and class rank.
We recommend that students complete a college preparatory curriculum that includes:
- 4 years of English
- 2 years of college-preparatory mathematics (3 years of college-preparatory mathematics including Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II are strongly recommended)
- 3 years of social sciences
- 2 years of science (one course with a lab)
