About BC-E

Our History

“I am studying and playing tennis at University of North Florida. I am enjoying being here. I have to thank Broward College for helping me before coming here.”

Rafaela Gomez, University of North Florida (Transferred 2016)

BC-E is the only college or university program in Ecuador that offers fully accredited U.S. courses. In other words, all credits earned during your studies in Guayaquil are fully transferable to colleges and universities in the United States because they are Broward College courses. All of our students are registered as BC students in the U.S.

In 1985, Brookdale Community College, in Lincroft, New Jersey, began offering first and second year college courses in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Students were fully registered on the main campus in New Jersey and the program was accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Between 1985 and 2005, more than 1,700 students completed their first two years of U.S. college studies in Ecuador and transferred to colleges and universities in the United States. In addition, students were also transferred to universities in France, Germany, England, Switzerland, Spain, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia, and Mexico.

In 2006, our program smoothly transitioned to Broward Community College in Fort Lauderdale, FL. In July 2008, the name was changed to Broward College when our home campus changed from a community college to a full four-year degree granting institution accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in Atlanta, GA.
