• The JAC3 E/MC Admission Process
    In order to receive admission into the JAC3 E/MC program, students must be formally enrolled.
    First-year candidates for the program will apply for consideration mid-way through their 10th grade year. 

    What’s the first step?
    Contact the Jackson Area Career Center at 517-768-5100, and mention your interest in the program. You may also want to begin reaching out to your student’s high school counselors, and begin thinking about individuals that may be able to provide letters of recommendation.

    Next, Complete the Admissions Process 
    The full admission process takes into account the following criteria:

    • Application (closed for 2020-2021 school year)

    • Achievement of a recommended GPA 

    • Compass testing scores

    • Student attendance record

    • EDP alignment to program requirements (feasibility)

    • Letters of Recommendation

    • Jackson and Baker College measures for admission


    As part of the application process, students will also participate in an employer/student interview, which will provide a space for interested employers to meet and talk with potential participants in the JAC3 program. Please see the Timeline for Students tab for detailed information on tentative interview dates and submission deadlines. 

    All materials will be submitted to
