For Parents & Families

John Jay College of Criminal Justice recognizes the vital role parents and families play in the academic success of their students. We encourage family communication and involvement through initiatives such as Family Weekend. We offer a variety of services for help students achieve a manageable balance between academics and familial obligations. Students with children can find affordable child care at our Children’s Center. Single Stop in the Wellness Center can assist students with government benefits, tax preparation, and free legal and financial advice. The Wellness Center also hosts a food bank for students experiencing food insecurity. John Jay College supports undocumented, DACA and DREAMer students with financial and legal resources, both on- and off-campus.
