What is a Career College?
A career college is a post-secondary institution that provides professional and technical, career-specific educational programs.  Most career colleges pay taxes yet receive no direct financial support from state governments, unlike public, not-for-profit public institutions that receive state tax support or not-for-profit private colleges that pay no taxes. Completion of a career college program can range from doctoral and master's degrees, to bachelor's degrees, to associate degrees, to short-term certificates and diplomas. Career colleges are owned and operated by private individuals, private investors and public corporations.
