BC currently serves approximately 63,000 students representing more than 180 countries. 37% of the students were born outside the United States.

International Student Support Services

International Student Success Coaches and Academic Advisors provide counseling on the admissions process, immigration, academics and personal concerns of International students.

Broward College is committed to ensuring the success of its students. The Advising office helps students establish and fulfill their educational and career goals through career research and educational planning.

The International Student Services (ISS) team provides a welcoming environment to incoming students by offering assistance not only with their academic needs but also their personal needs. For example, if a student needs housing arrangements the office will provide referrals to apartment and furniture rentals. Renting a furnished apartment provides a more independent living experience compared to living with relatives. Students can also feel at home away from home in a properly furnished living space.

Campuses

Broward College has three campuses and eight centers in South Florida. In addition, the College has International Centers, offering Broward College programs, located in Bolivia, China - Shanghai, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Peru, Spain, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam.

Programs of Study

Students pursue more than 100 majors, including Arts and Sciences, Aviation, Business, Computer Science, Education, Engineering, and Nursing. The top six majors for international students are Business, Engineering, Computer Engineering/Science, Computer Information Technology, Supply Chain Management (Global Trade and Logistics) and Pre-Medicine. A business based degree provides students with endless opportunities to succeed in the global world. With the rapid innovation of technology, Broward College offers Computer & Network Security (Cybersecurity). The Aviation Institute provides top-notch flight training and aircraft maintenance instruction from highly skilled instructors at an affordable cost.

Broward College offers the following types of degrees for its international students:

Or, if the bachelor’s degree is offered at BC, complete the last years of the bachelor’s at Broward College. The transfer is guaranteed with the exception of limited access or teacher certification programs or a major program requiring an audition.
     
  • Associate in Science (A.S.) – Students complete two years of specialized training designed to prepare them to enter the workforce in a high-demand career with guaranteed job skills. Students may also continue their education by enrolling in one of Broward College’s bachelor's programs or transferring to other articulated A.S. to Baccalaureate degree programs at universities in Florida.

NOTE: Students interested in applying to one of our bachelor’s degrees must first complete the associate’s degree or 60 college level credits.

Language Training Program (English as a Second Language)

One of the programs available to international students is Broward College's Language Training Program, which consists of four levels of Grammar, Reading and Communications. Upon arrival, students take a placement test known as the Levels of English Proficiency (LOEP) exam. The LOEP scores will determine which classes the student will be placed in. International students must have an intermediate level of English proficiency to successfully take the LOEP test.

After completing level four of the language program, students continue their education at Broward College without re-applying. Acceptance into one of our associate’s degree is guaranteed. In addition, the International Student Services Office (ISSO) will change the student’s I-20 from Language Training to a college degree program (known as Change of Education Level). The student does not need to go back to the American Embassy (in his/her home country) to change the F-1 visa on the passport.
