- On May 8, 1939, after months of planning and consultation with state officials, Cisco citizens succeeded in getting enacted into legislation a bill which created Cisco Junior College as a part of the Cisco Independent School District. R.N. Cluck, superintendent of Cisco schools, who had devoted years to the project, became its first president. Randolph College properties were purchased, the college was formally opened in September, 1939, and the first students were received in 1940. Such was the success of this venture that in 1956 the college was separated from the public schools, and a Board of Regents was elected. Since that time the high-quality, low-cost, state-supported educational programs have enabled Cisco Junior College to satisfy the needs of students from its service area and from across Texas. Cisco Junior College is dedicated to providing quality education to its students by a competent and caring faculty. A comprehensive program of knowledge, skills, and experiences is provided through curricula for academic transfer, career preparation, and continuing adult education. In support of this educational mission, the College promotes student success through a program of placement assessment, skill development, and a comprehensive program of student services. Cisco Junior College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award the associate level degree.
