Northeastern Junior College’s Yuma Campus is now open and offering credit-bearing courses to residents of Yuma and surrounding communities for the spring semester of 2020. Registration is also open for short-term and ongoing adult education classes such as Annie’s Project and English as a second language (ESL).
“We are extremely pleased to offer Yuma-area residents college-level courses to advance their education and careers,” said Jay A. Lee, President of Northeastern. “Local residents made it abundantly clear they wanted a Northeastern campus, and we are now delivering on the commitment we made to open it.”
Full-semester courses open to registration at the Yuma Campus include an array of math, English, journalism and agriculture. Certain courses taught on the Sterling campus will be available for students to attend in real time via virtual classroom technology installed at the Yuma campus. An up-to-date listing of classes open for registration is available at www.njc.edu/yuma.
“This is a landmark day for Yuma as well as Northeastern,” said Linda Merkl, Northeastern’s Vice President of Academic Affairs. “This is our first satellite campus within the college’s five-county service area, and Yuma-area residents now have ready access to college-level courses that will benefit the community for years to come.”
Northeastern’s service area, as designated by the Colorado Community College System, includes Logan, Yuma, Phillips, Sedgwick and Washington counties. The new Yuma Campus is located in the building formerly occupied by the City of Yuma at 910 South Main Street.
