What makes us stand out?
At Northeastern Junior College students have the opportunity to significantly improve their “grade-point-average” for entrance to university programs.
NJC provides the extra time to decide on a future college and area of specialty while completing the basic two year requirements for transfer to four-year institutions.
Unique Career Programs
These programs are somewhat unique because of the working relationship that NJC has with other community colleges to share the responsibility of providing the training and internships for those careers. Pre-requisite work is completed at NJC. In some cases the lecture part of the program may be completed on-line and students travel to the clinical sites for the internship. In other programs the student may be required to transfer to another college for at least a semester to complete the program requirements. These unique programs would include: Biotechnology Technician, Radiology Technician, Surgery Technician and Respiratory Care.
It just makes sense.
We’ve been providing educational services to this area of Colorado since 1941. While students from all over the state, country and world make their way to Sterling to study at NJC, it seems that many of our area students think they need to leave here to find ‘something better.’ When it comes to an overall academic product, campus atmosphere, and being in a place geared totally toward individual student success, you’d be hard pressed to find a college any better equipped or inviting than Northeastern. And, we can save you some money, too. The reality is, students who want a four year degree can complete two years at NJC, save some money and get a solid collegiate foundation under them in the way of an associate’s degree, and then go virtually anywhere they want to go and finish out an advanced degree. It makes a lot of sense. Consider the fact that recent statistics show that less than 40% of those students who start a four year college degree will ever
finish a four year college degree—so starting out at a two year college is just plain smart on your student’s part.
