Students are assigned an academic advisor who provides guidance with an emphasis on personalized attention to meet individual needs. At times, personal difficulties may interfere with the success of the student. Students are encouraged to seek help from their advisor or another staff member for any problems that may arise. The academic advisor also assists in problem solving to improve academic performance and achieving the goal of graduation and successful placement.
The Learning Resource System (LRS) provides students with resources that foster the development of both the technical and soft skills that are integrated into the J-Tech curriculum. Students have easy access to the LRS throughout the facility, including the classrooms and the lab. The Learning Resource Center (LRC) is an integral part of the Learning Resource System and supports the instructional needs of J-Tech students by providing a core collection of books, access to Library Information Resources Network (L.I.R.N) electronic database by providing computers, industry magazines and periodicals, as well as other electronic resources and databases available through the internet.
The LRS is also used to assist our students in the preparation for the professional world. Students can use LRS materials to enhance their learning by watching informational videos, through internet and text research, and conducting trend analysis through current industry journals and magazines.
