City College was established in 1984 as Draughon’s College of Business, a branch of Draughon’s Junior College of Business founded in 1896 in Paducah, Kentucky. The College launched its first branch campus in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Since that time, the institution has grown to five campuses with an online division serving thousands of students throughout the State of Florida and globally, with its headquarters located in Fort Lauderdale.
The mission of City College is to educate and train students in their chosen major for employment in specific career fields. The College awards Diplomas, Associate of Science or Bachelor of Science degrees based on the student's successful completion of required coursework.
Building a legacy of excellence is our intent and positioning City College as a compelling choice for potential students. In the dynamic and highly fluid environment of current higher education, to stay ahead, we must press ahead. Yet, we seek new dimensions of providing an Extraordinary Educational Experience, not simply because we aim to forge ahead, but because, at the very core of it all, there is an ethical obligation.
