An International Affiliate is an institution outside of the United States that has adopted a portion of the curriculum of Broward College. Students attending the school are generally from the local area. The course numbers, titles, descriptions, outlines and student learning outcomes are the same as those followed by Broward College students in Florida. These courses are taught in English typically by local faculty in the host country who meet the qualifications as required by Broward College's regional accrediting body, the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges (SACS) and are approved by Broward College. However, students taking courses at an International Affiliate are limited to taking less than 50% of the courses leading to a degree because the academic programs offered at the International Affiliate have not been approved by SACS.
Broward College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate and baccalaureate degrees. Contact the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Broward College.
Currently, Academic Affiliates are located in Kuwait, Singapore and Turkey.
