Founded in 1963 as part of the City University of New York (CUNY), Kingsborough Community College remains firmly committed to its mission of combining the best of what a college can offer.
Kingsborough has been named one of the leading community colleges in the country by the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program. It has also earned national recognition for its creative and effective use of learning communities, for the large number of degrees it confers, for the high percentage of graduates who continue their studies, and for the innovative programs that draw thousands of non-traditional students to its campus every year.
Kingsborough offers 38 associate degree and 4 certificate programs. Of the approximately 15,000 degree-seeking students, about 70% are enrolled in liberal arts or science degree programs and the remainder pursue degrees in more specialized, career-oriented programs.
More than 70% of Kingsborough graduates go on to pursue a baccalaureate degree. The college has articulation agreements with most City University and State University senior colleges, and transfer agreements with several private colleges in the region.
