The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) is an accredited community college located in Baltimore County, Maryland in the United States with three main campuses and three extension centers.

Programs and enrollment

CCBC has more than 100 associate degree and certificate programs in a wide range of fields.[1] Annual enrollment is greater than 72,000 students, most of whom live in the surrounding communities. The college has nationwide and international ties as well, with the student body representing 55 countries. The Catonsville, Dundalk, and Essex campuses each have an Honors Program for day and evening students.

Campuses

CCBC has three main campuses located in the Catonsville, Dundalk, and Essex communities of Baltimore County, Maryland, as well as extension centers located in the Hunt Valley, Owings Mills, and Randallstown communities of Baltimore County. Each campus started as its own college, with Hunt Valley, Owings Mills, and Randallstown centers being extensions to Catonsville Community College, however, in 1998 the separate colleges of Catonsville, Dundalk, and Essex merged to form the Community College of Baltimore County.

Catonsville Campus

Currently located at 800 South Rolling Road, Catonsville, Maryland, and approximately one mile west of the Baltimore Beltway, the Catonsville campus of CCBC originated in 1957 as Catonsville Community College (CCC). Originally, the college operated out of the basement of Catonsville High School with an enrollment of 53 students, and shared a curriculum with that of Essex Community College, founded at the same time. Between 1959 and 1963, the County Board of Education raised funds to purchase a permanent campus for the college, eventually buying the Knapp Estate (a dairy farm in Catonsville). The construction on new classroom buildings began in 1962. As of 2005, the CCBC Catonsville campus has 19 buildings. The former manor / farm house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]

Dundalk Campus

Community College of Baltimore County Dundalk Campus is one of the three main campuses of CCBC which was started in 1970 and built in 1971. As of 2005 it has 16 buildings, and houses the Baltimore County police training academy. Dundalk is the smallest of the three campuses.


Essex Campus

Currently located at 7201 Rossville Boulevard, Essex, Maryland, the Essex Campus of CCBC originated in 1957 as Essex Community College. Originally, the college operated out of Kenwood High School with an enrollment of 59 and shared a curriculum with that of Catonsville Community College. Jokingly, it is referred to by many of its students as The University of Rossville Boulevard. As of 2005, it has 14 buildings. The school mascot is the knight. CCBC Essex has one of the top rated associate nursing programs in the region.
