Johnston Community College Transitions Courses To An Online Format

Earn your degree or certificate entirely online

The outbreak of COVID-19 has abruptly changed every aspect of our lives. Individuals across our community are trying to find a new “normal,” but let’s be honest, how can we return to normal when everything has seemingly changed? For most, we can no longer send our children to school, visit loved ones, attend a place of worship, or even go to work. If we can’t go to work or no longer have work to go to, how can we afford to learn new skills? At Johnston Community College, we understand because we are all in this crisis together.

To help meet the changing needs of our community, we have shifted almost all of our classes to an entirely online format, allowing you to earn a certificate or degree from an accredited college from the comfort of home. Right now, you can enroll in most of our courses at minimal or no cost with scholarships and financial aid. Continuing education classes could be free if you are unemployed, underemployed, or have received a layoff notice.

Our online degrees include Associate of Arts college transfer, Associate of Science college transfer, Criminal Justice Technology, Fire Protection Technology, and our Business Administration programs, including Accounting and Finance, Medical Office Administration.

David N. Johnson is the president of Johnston Community college. He can be reached at (919) 934-3051.
