The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) is one of the top undergraduate education providers in the Baltimore metropolitan area. The Community College of Baltimore County came into existence in 1998 when the state legislature restructured the three existing community colleges of the county, namely: Catonsville Community College, Essex Community College, and Dundalk Community College, into a single college spanning multiple locations. The Community College of Baltimore County operates through three campuses: CCBC Catonsville, CCBC Dundalk, and CCBC Essex.
The Community College of Baltimore County comprises seven schools: School of Applied and Information Technology, School of Business, Social Science, Wellness and Education, School of Health Professions, School of Justice and Public Safety, School of Liberal Arts, School of Mathematics and Science, and School of Continuing Education and Economic Development. The college has a total enrollment of 71,400 students across different campuses.
The Community College of Baltimore County is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education for awarding associate degrees and certificates.
