Founded in 1963 and part of The City University of New York (CUNY) system, Kingsborough Community College’s beautiful 70-acre waterfront campus is located in Manhattan Beach, on the southern tip of Brooklyn, New York.
Named one of the top community colleges in the country by The New York Times, KCC offers a wide range of credit and non-credit courses in the liberal arts and career education to all students with a high school diploma or GED. Most classes have fewer than 30 students, allowing professors to teach through hands-on learning and group discussions, using the latest technology, such as smart classrooms and video-conferencing rooms.
Kingsborough’s academic calendar is divided into two major semesters, each consisting of a 12-week module, followed by an optional 6-week module. A unique 2-for-1 policy allows most NYC residents who enroll in the major semester as a full-time student to attend the 6-week module for free.
Kingsborough offers a number of programs for special populations including the My Turn program, which allows NYC residents 60 years or older to attend college tuition free; College Now, a unique partnership with area high schools to prepare students for college-level work that is now being replicated by colleges throughout the city; and New Start, which offers students who have had difficulty in college a second chance to succeed.
Admissions Open Houses are held throughout the year and you are always welcome to make a personal visit. Please call 718-COLLEGE (718-265-5343) or click on admissions to make a reservation.
