Program Description

University Transfer: Cisco Junior College’s (CJC’s) academic courses transfer directly into a four-year degree program at any state-supported university. In addition, specific articulation agreements exist with many universities including Texas Tech, College of the Southwest, University of Texas-Dallas and Midwestern State.

Career Programs: CJC also offers a wide variety of career and technical education programs that prepare students for immediate job placement.

The following examples highlight several outstanding programs:

  • weldingCJC offers a fast-track five-week welding certificate that prepares welders for entry-level positions. The college works with the local Texas Workforce Commission and local employers to ensure the applicability of its instruction.
  • nursingCJC has two program options for persons seeking an associate degree in nursing, either of which allows the graduate to seek a state license as a registered nurse. Individuals with no previous nursing license can enroll in a generic two-year option; persons already licensed as vocational nurses can enroll in an LVN to RN option. CJC also offers a one-year vocational nursing program that leads to a certificate and prepares the graduate to take the license exam. The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission has accredited this program.
  • criminal justice and homeland security – the program prepares students to work as police officers, probation officers, parole officers, crime laboratory specialists, criminologists, customs officials, correctional officers, public and private investigators and research and planning analysts. It offers both an associate degree and certificates.
