Jackson Community College (commonly known as JCC) is a community college located in Jackson County, Michigan. Originally established as Jackson Junior College in 1928, Jackson County electors voted to reincorporate the institution as a Community College District under the "Public Act 188 of 1955" in 1962. In 1964 voters approved a charter millage that continues to fund the community college to this day.
JCC has been accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools since 1933 and offers 48 associate degrees, certificate programs, and transfer options to Jackson County and Michigan residents. Today, the College has a yearly enrollment of nearly 10,000 students between its several locations; Central Campus located in Summit Township, the Flight Center at the Jackson County Airport, a campus on the north side of town near I-94, JCC @ LISD TECH (vocational-technical school) in Adrian, and the LeTarte Hillsdale Center in Hillsdale, as well as online programs.
JCC's Central Campus offers student housing facilities, becoming one of only a handful of community college in Michigan to offer student housing. The college provides a variety of Division II athletic programs, including basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, cross country and golf.
