Introduction

Originally christened the Junior College of Broward County, later Broward Community College, and today Broward College, this institution is one of the schools that makes up Florida’s “Great 28” network of two-year community and junior colleges. The school confers a number of associate’s and bachelor’s degrees, as well as professional and technical training programs, non-credit certificates, and continuing education classes. It was recently approved to begin offering online and distance-learning degrees and certificates.

The school is comprised of a number of centers and campuses that are located throughout Broward County, Florida, including the A. Hugh Adams Central Campus, the Judson A. Samuels South Campus, the North Campus in Coconut Creek, the Willis Holcombe Center, the Pines Center, the Institute for Economic Development, the Weston Center, and the Broward College Maroone Automotive Training Center.

Popular courses of study include Accounting Technology, Aviation, Graphic Design Technology, Legal Assisting Technology, Marine Engineering Management, Massage Therapy, and Automotive Technology.

Academics

Students can work toward various associate degrees, bachelor’s degrees, certificates, or diplomas. The college is separated into the Academic or the Health Science tracks, and students choose which path to follow depending on their career goals.

Online

Entire degrees, select required general education classes, and some program-specific classes can be taken online, which can save students time and money. Students also have the option of taking blended courses, which are a combination of online and traditional in-person classes Interested students have the option to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, or one of many Technical Certificates.

Study Abroad

A unique aspect of the school is its Study Abroad program. Every student is eligible and can choose to study for a summer or a semester in Spain, Germany, Peru, India, England or Vietnam, or with a program sponsored by the College Consortium for International Studies. This allows students a rare opportunity to fully experience a country and culture outside of the United States, which can greatly enhance an education and give students the opportunity to practice a foreign language.

Most Popular Fields of Study

Admissions

Although admission is offered to most students who apply to the school, prospective applicants must complete several steps of certification and evaluation before final approval and prior to registering for a course of study or specific classes.

Proof of high school graduation or GED equivalency plus high school transcripts, if applicable, are required. In addition, applicants must establish their legal residency in the United States and qualify for either in-state or out-of-state residency for the state of Florida.

Finally, prospective students must submit to a standardized test to assess college readiness. Several options are available to fulfill this requirement, including the SAT, ACT, or the Computerized Placement Tests. English skills tests may be required for overseas applicants or non-native speakers. Additional prerequisites or admission requirements may apply for admission to specific programs or courses of study.

Financial Aid

There are a number of financial aid packages and options available. The school has rolling deadlines throughout the year for financial aid applications, but officials caution that early submission of the FAFSA and supporting documents is the best way to ensure full consideration and the maximum award. Scholarships, loans, grants, and student employment are offered, and the school offers admitted students access to an array of state-funded scholarships and grants.
