International Centers & Affiliates

Since 1974 Broward College has been a leader in international education partnering with colleges and universities throughout the world to provide American educational opportunities to students who live outside of the United States.  The BC International Education program model allows students to stay in their home country and complete an Associate’s degree (the first two years of a 4-year U.S. Bachelor’s degree) before transferring to a university in the U.S. to finish the final two years of the degree.

International Centers
A partnering institution becomes an International Center when the Broward academic program or programs offered at the host institution have been approved by the Commission on Colleges of SACS. The course numbers, titles, descriptions, outlines and student learning outcomes are the same as students follow in Florida. These courses are taught in English typically by local faculty in the host country who meet the qualifications as required by our regional accrediting body, the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges (SACS) and are approved by Broward College. Students who study in a Broward College program at an International Center are students of Broward College. This means that student coursework will appear on a Broward College transcript, and students who successfully complete the program requirements will earn an Associate's degree from Broward College. Most institutions that have become an International Center started as an Academic Affiliate.
 
Currently, International Centers are located in Bolivia, China - Shanghai, Ecuador, India, Peru, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam.


International Affiliates

An Academic 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 students follow in Florida. These courses are taught in English typically by local faculty in the host country who meet the qualifications as required by our 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 Academic Affiliate are not Broward College students because the academic programs offered at the Affiliate have not yet been approved by SACS. Thus, at the Academic Affiliate level, all of the grades and courses are recorded by the host institution, not by Broward College.
 
Currently, Affiliates are located in China - Zhuhai and TianjinDubai, Indonesia , Russia, and Spain.
