Established in 1994, this college sets its academic focus on associate degree programs and certificate offerings designed to facilitate immediate workforce entry or transfer to four-year institutions.

As an open-enrollment institution, it maintains a non-selective admissions policy, making higher education reachable for a diverse student population.
