A community college (also known as a junior college) is a higher education institution that provides a two year curriculum that can include leading to an associate’s degree.

Many programs are designed as a transfer program towards a four year degree. Additional programs are designed as occupational and technical programs that prepare a student to enter the workforce within 1-2 years of study.

Besides coursework focusing on academic programs, courses are also often offered at the community college for personal growth or development.
