As a public, two-year degree granting institution of higher education, Queensborough provides students with the basic education and skills they need to become contributing and productive members of our society. Our students not only live locally, but upon graduation, become part of the greater NYC local workforce and our local community.
Queensborough has been a turning point in the lives of nearly 50,000 alumni who have graduated from the college since its founding in 1959 – helping them realize their potential and giving them the confidence to strike out on their own unique path toward success.
As part of The City University of New York’s Invest in CUNY Campaign, the Queensborough Community College Fund, Inc. has launched its Edge for Success Campaign to meet its $25 million fundraising goal by 2015.The Campaign provides an enriched learning environment and scholarships to hardworking and ambitious Queensborough students. By investing in the Edge for Success Campaign you give QCC students an extra edge so they can access, attend and complete college, pursue a rewarding career and become contributing, productive citizens. Over 60% of QCC students transfer to a four-year college after earning their Associate degree, while others obtain the necessary skills for career advancement.
