- 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.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
