In the United States , community colleges, sometimes called junior colleges , technical colleges , two-year colleges, or city colleges, are primarily two-year public institutions providing lower-level tertiary education also known as continuing education , granting certificates , diplomas , and associate degrees.
After graduating from a community college, some students transfer to a four-year liberal arts college or university for two to three years to complete a bachelor's degree. Before the s, community colleges in the United States were more commonly referred to as junior colleges, and that term is still used at some institutions.
However, the term "junior college" has evolved to describe private two-year institutions, whereas the term "community college" has evolved to describe publicly funded two-year institutions.
