For 50 years, Jefferson State Community College has been proud to serve the greater Birmingham area by providing a quality education blended with convenience, value and personal attention. Jefferson State remains firmly rooted in the communities we serve, consistently helping people of all generations acquire the education and workforce training needed to achieve their goals.

Jefferson State serves approximately 15,000 students each year and is one of the largest community colleges in the state. We currently offer more than 120 university transfer programs, 33 career programs and numerous certificate programs at our four campuses in Jefferson, Shelby, St. Clair and Chilton counties. In addition to these campuses, we have an extensive online presence to allow flexible learning from any location. Our staff is eager to assist you in finding a program or course that fits your needs.

With the ever-increasing cost of education at many institutions, higher education can be out of reach for many families. Jefferson State prides itself on providing accessible, economical education of the highest caliber. I myself am a graduate of Jefferson State. I experienced firsthand how a quality, affordable educational opportunity prepares students to transfer to a four-year institution or enter the workforce.
