About Berkeley College

Your potential is our promise.®

Be curious.

Right from the start, you’ll notice that Berkeley College is a unique college experience. Our goal is to do everything possible to help you reach your full potential. While we have the facilities and resources to offer an outstanding education that’s very focused on preparing you for a career, most people say that Berkeley feels more like a family. You won’t feel like a number—people will know you by name. Someone will always be available to help. And you’ll get a practical, powerful, hands-on education that will truly prepare you to enter the professional world.

Be real.

An important part of what sets Berkeley apart is our diversity. More than 4,900 students study at campuses in New York and New Jersey, plus Berkeley College Online®. Over 280 international students represent more than 40 countries. We have students who are fresh out of high school and those who are grandparents. Learning with people from so many different cultures and backgrounds will help prepare you for immersion into a global marketplace.

Be flexible.

Making it easy to fit a quality education into a busy lifestyle is also a priority at Berkeley. Our campuses range from the heart of one of the world’s largest cities to a lush mountaintop in the suburbs to the ultimate flexibility of Berkeley College Online®. Each campus location has its own personality as well as many amenities that enhance the educational experience. Everyone has access to activities at all campuses. Day, evening/weekend, and online classes allow you to balance your educational goals with your personal and professional commitments.

Be practical.

Programs of study at Berkeley are developed and regularly updated with input from industry Advisory Boards to ensure that students learn the skill today’s employers demand. Rigorous classroom instruction from professors with extensive professional experience combines with hands-on learning for a well-rounded education that truly prepares students for the professional world.
