- BCCC is both an old and a young institution. The College dates its origins to Baltimore Junior College, founded as part of the Baltimore City Public Schools in 1947 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 City and State leaders recognized that shrinking City resources made it difficult for the City to operate a quality institution of higher education. 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 status in 1992 and renamed Baltimore City Community College. Academics at BCCC comprises a variety of student-centered learning options that meet the diverse needs of the community. Your academic and career success is a primary objective of everyone here. BCCC offers 30 Associate degree and 27 Certificate programs in technology, business, engineering, health care, hospitality, teacher education and other fields, enabling you to transfer to a four-year college or university, or get retraining at work.
