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 yet been approved by SACS.
