School Details

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. 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. 

The college offers associate’s degree and certificate programs from the following schools:

  • School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
  • School of Business and Professional Careers
  • School of Health Careers, Technology and Applied Learning
  • School of Mathematics, Science and Engineering

Many of the associate’s degrees and certificates can be earned completely online through the department of Online Education.
