Working at Westchester Community College

Mission and Goals

Westchester Community College is more than just the county’s largest educational institution. It is a living, breathing part of Westchester that goes beyond the influence of a typical college and affects the lives of all who enter its doors.

History

Westchester Community College was founded in 1946 as the New York State Institute of Applied Arts and Sciences in White Plains. In 1957, the County of Westchester bought the 360-acre John Hartford estate in Valhalla and designated 218 acres for the community college.

Enrollment

There are approximately 12,000 full- and part-time college credit students. Continuing education students bring the total number served by the college each semester to more than 20,000. Precise statistics about the college's enrollment history can be found in the Institutional Research & Planning pages.

Faculty

Westchester Community College’s faculty and professional staff have received more SUNY Chancellors Awards for Excellence than any other community college in the system. More than 98% hold masters or doctorate degrees in their fields. Student/faculty ratio is 16.1:1.

Veteran Friendly Campus

The college, which opened in 1946 in order to train and educate veterans, welcomes those who have served our country. We are considered a "Veteran Friendly Campus" due to our extensive services for those who have spent time in the military.

Degrees

The college offers more than 50 associate and certificate programs. We have three types of associate degrees in 36 subject areas: the Associate in Arts for students transferring to four-year institutions in the liberal arts; the Associate in Science for those transferring to four-year institutions for business, math, science or health careers; and the Associate in Applied Science for those preparing to seek immediate employment, change careers or transfer. In addition, certificate programs typically requiring between 15 to 33 credits are offered in approximately 20 career fields.

Continuing Education

The Continuing Education Division is the largest such unit in the entire SUNY system. It offers courses for people of all ages considering career choices or changes or personal development; customized training for businesses; innovative programming for older adults; an exciting arts and culture series open to the public.

Library

The Harold L. Drimmer Library / Learning Resource Center contains 110,000 volumes and 600 periodical titles, as well as more than 19 million searchable records and entries from 97 electronically-linked libraries.

Career & Transfer Center
