The catalogue introduces our Business and Science programs and details both the General & Professional Core Requirements and possible electives of each major offered at the junior college. Additionally, the course sequences show the period and order in which the student is expected to take his/her required courses, so as to facilitate for a smoother transition from one semester to the next.
To qualify for an Associate Degree, students must satisfactorily complete their General Core, Support Core and Professional Core Requirements.

Independence Junior College opened an evening division on August 27, 2007 with 45 students enrolled and housed temporarily in the Independence High School’s facilities. This was an initiative of the Ministry of Education in collaboration with the Administration and Board of Management of Independence High School. Since then, the junior college has almost tripled in size.
Our current offerings include a variety of degrees within our Business and Science programs. These programs were structured to emphasize practical education in an effort to ensure functionality of our students in the varied industrial undertakings in our immediate surroundings.
