Broward College

Broward College opened its doors on September 6, 1960 as the Junior College of Broward County.  There were 701 students in the first class, and the Central campus opened in August of 1963.  Over the intervening years, the College has continued to grow and continued its pursuit of excellence.

Today, Broward College offers a unique set of alternatives for students of all types: students can earn an associate’s degree, a bachelor’s degree, an associate’s degree from the College, then transfer to a university, or they can complete a technical program to get on a fast track to a career.  The College has a unique relationship with Florida Atlantic University, since the University’s Davie campus is located on Broward College’s Central Campus.

The College’s Dual Enrollment, Early Admission and College Academy at BC programs tie the College even closer to the community.

  • Early Admission allows qualifying high school seniors to enroll in Fall and Spring terms at the College.

Broward College now serves more than 63,000 students per year, who earn certificates, and associate and baccalaureate degrees.
