Message from the President


I would like to thank you for choosing San Juan College, where our focus is on your success.  Whether you are just beginning your educational journey or working to enhance your current career, our faculty and staff are dedicated to you as an individual.  Our professors are more than teachers in the classroom - they become our students’ mentors, encouraging them to succeed beyond the classroom.

We offer an array of affordable programs and advanced technology to help you gain the competitive edge you need to succeed in the workforce - locally, regionally and nationally.  We also understand that today’s students require flexible options.  Along with offering both face-to-face and online classes, you also can continue your education by earning your bachelor’s or master’s degrees right here at home through our partnerships with other state universities.

Completing your education is vital to your ability to provide for yourself and your family.  According to statistics, individuals who have an associate degree earn an average of $10,000 more per year.  San Juan College is the perfect place to help you accomplish that goal.

Enhancing your educational experience is our priority.  San Juan College is one of only 13 community colleges in the nation selected to participate in the American Association of Community College’s Guided Pathways 2.0. Our participation helps enhance your overall educational experience and move into your chosen career efficiently by selecting one of our seven career pathways, which include: Arts, Communication and Humanities; Business and Entrepreneurship; Computer Science, Information Technology and Cybersecurity; Education, Social Services and Public Safety; Energy, Manufacturing and Transportation; Health Sciences; and Science, Math and Engineering. 

In addition to our Guided Pathways 2.0, we also provide a range of support services to ensure your success - from our Tutoring Center to our Veterans, Native American and Hispanic/Latino Centers.  Through our Student Achievement Center, we connect students to community resources and help remove barriers that can sometimes get in the way of students completing their education.

Your success awaits you!  We are committed to providing you with the opportunity to reach your full potential and achieve your dreams.  We look forward to being a part of your journey to excellence.
