At Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) we meet students where they are through personal attention with the support of dedicated faculty. Each year we educate nearly 14,000 students from Baltimore City, the State of Maryland, and the world.
BCCC is a state-sponsored, comprehensive, degree-granting community college with five learning sites in Baltimore City. We offer associate degree programs and certifications in high-demand fields, affordable tuition and flexible classes scheduled to meet students’ needs.
At BCCC students receive the quality education and specialized training critical to get good jobs, to transfer to four-year institutions and to upgrade or acquire new skills to stay competitive in today’s changing marketplace.
The College’s Workforce Development and Continuing Education Division serves more than 8,000 students seeking new skills and personal growth. BCCC offers General Educational Development for students seeking high school diplomas, English as a Second Language instruction and Adult Basic Education to strengthen literary skills.
BCCC welcomes everyone who wants to enrich their lives through education and the pursuit of new skills.
BCCC is both an old and a young institution. The College was founded in 1947, as Baltimore Junior College, a part of the Baltimore City Public Schools. Its mission was to provide post high school education for returning World War II veterans.
In 1967, the College was renamed Community College of Baltimore and restructured as a department of the City of Baltimore. In the 1980s, shrinking resources made it difficult for the City to continue operating a quality institution of higher education.
As a result, on July 1, 1990, the Maryland General Assembly created a new institution, New Community College of Baltimore, funded by the State of Maryland. The College was granted permanent state status in 1992 and renamed Baltimore City Community College.
