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.
