Q: Does my student need to buy a parking permit to park on campus?
A: If you attend the JATC North campus, Yes, an email will be sent to your student within a few days of the start of the semester. Students have one week to follow the link in the email and register up to 2 vehicles. Students will not receive a sticker, SLCC parking patrol will read their plate number. If your student doesn’t have a license plate on the front of their vehicle, make sure they don’t pull through the parking stall. Citations begin the second week of the semester.
If you attend the JATC South campus, parking is free but students will be assigned a parking permit number during the first week or two of school to prevent neighbors and Post Office customers from using our lot.
Q: Does the JATC bell schedule change when the High School schedule changes?
A: The JATC bell schedule always stays the same. If your student has an assembly or other event at their school, it is their responsibility to leave at an appropriate time. If they are late to the JATC, they will need to check in at the main office.
Q: Are there resources available if my student is struggling emotionally while at school?
A: Yes, we have a full-time counselor available to support your student in their time of need. We also have a calm room located in the main office students can utilize if they simply need a few minutes to decompress.
Q: Does JATC follow the Salt Lake Community College Calendar?
A: No, JATC follows the Jordan School District Calendar. If your student is enrolled in concurrent enrollment with SLCC, or another University, they may receive texts or emails about school closures for holidays or weather, please disregard those messages and refer to the Jordan School District calendar and school closure guidelines.
Q: Can my student work a part-time job and participate in extracurricular activities while attending JATC?
A: Some programs have required internship or clinical hours to be completed outside of class time. Many programs require extensive time given to studying and preparation. Students may want to evaluate their amount of time dedicated to work and other extracurricular activities. Please consult with your program teacher if you are unsure of the time commitment needed for your chosen program.
Q: What are the deadlines for Concurrent Enrollment?
A: College/ University admission: Your student must be admitted and have a student ID number before the first day of class. Failure to do so may result in withdrawal from the program.
