A Pathway to Higher Education
Jefferson Higher Education Center, located in the Extended Learning Center (Building E), officially opened in June 2010 with four academic institutions partners. Today, the Higher Education Center holds partnerships with five academic institutions who offer more than 13 degree programs. While the education opportunities of the Higher Education Center have expanded, its goal remains the same—to increase access to higher education for residents of the North Country.
The Jefferson Higher Education Center shares the Extended Learning Center building with faculty and staff from JHEC partner institutions, along with Jefferson’s Continuing Education Division and the NYS Small Business Development Center.
