Student Success Stories

We challenge our students to do their best and are proud to share their achievements. Many of our graduates transferred to a four-year college to complete their Bachelor’s degree. Graduating from Fort Lewis College, New Mexico Tech, New Mexico State University, and Stanford University, these former San Juan College students went on to successful jobs.
