Berkeley College is a higher education institution founded in 1931, specializing in business and professional studies.

Academic programs[edit]

The for-profit college offers Associate's and Bachelor's degrees, and provides academic programs in business administration, general business, accounting, financial services, marketing communications, management (including concentrations in entrepreneurship, environmental, nonprofit, and human resources), international business, information technology management, and fashion marketing and management through The Larry L. Luing School of Business. The School of Professional Studies offers degree programs in health services, justice studies (criminal justice), legal studies, graphic design, and interior design. The School of Liberal Arts offers courses in humanities, mathematics/science, social sciences, English, and foreign languages.

Of the college's more than 8,900 students, including more than 700 international students, 74% are enrolled in Bachelor's degree programs.[1] Berkeley College campuses are accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The Paralegal Studies program is approved by the American Bar Association.

Demographics and tuition[edit]

Roughly 60% of enrolled students identify themselves as female. A majority of students identify themselves as Black/African American (31%) or Hispanic/Latino (31%); additionally, 8% of students identify themselves as White, 2% as Asian, and <1% Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. Of the students, 11% are non-resident aliens.[2]

Berkeley is a for-profit college that aims to extract as much money from students as possible without regard for whether they are appropriate for their institution. Berkeley aggressively attempts to recruit potential students by telling them they not only will not have to pay, that they will receive money back from their loans.

Once Berkeley has received their money, their interest in the student will wane. Students have been tricked into signing admissions documents, not understanding that they have been enrolled, never attending classes, then badgered for years to pay for classes that they never took.

According to the College Board, yearly tuition and fees is $21,900 students.[3]
