A Message from the President
Dear Prospective Student & Family,
I am disappointed to have to share the news that Brookdale’s Spring Open House that was scheduled for March 29 has been cancelled. I sincerely regret that I will not be able to meet you first hand, but the safety and well-being of our community is our top priority.
Nevertheless, I invite you to learn more about Brookdale Community College and all it has to offer.
Brookdale can take you wherever you want to be. We offer over 65 academic degree programs, convenient locations throughout Monmouth County, online courses, a robust schedule of activities and clubs for students, and the services you need to be successful in your journey. We pride ourselves on the partnerships we have created with top 4-year colleges and universities to make your transfer process seamless and simple. But, perhaps best of all, is the amount of money you can save by choosing to come to Brookdale.
The average amount saved per year by attending Brookdale compared to a public four-year college is $6,000. The average savings compared to a public four-year college out of state is $20,000 and the savings over a private college is $29,000! Those are annual savings. If it takes two years to get an Associate’s degree, we are talking a savings of up to $58,000! What could you do with $58,000?
I hope you realize the many advantages of starting your college education at Brookdale and decide to be a future graduate of Brookdale Community College! Once life returns to normal and our facilities reopen, we are planning to offer tour dates and information sessions. I will make sure to share that information with you and keep you up to date.
I hope you stay safe, healthy, and well.
Dr. David Stout
