International Student Initiative

World ORT has a long and proud tradition of welcoming and educating people from all over the world. Bramson ORT College is continuing that tradition in the United States and its mission by pursuing a new initiative to recruit and educate students from all over the world in the melting pot of the United States – New York City.

Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa, who was attending the opening of an ORT facility in South Africa, referred to ORT as an institution that helps individuals grow and become an asset to their community and country.  The new International Student Initiative is in keeping with the past initiatives that Nelson Mandela referred to.  He said, “One tool that will enable people to rise above their circumstances is education, particularly education that leads to the acquisition of useful and marketable skills.”   He also stated, “Technology education is the foundation stone on which we must build… ORT’s initiative could not therefore have come at a better time.”

Our first regional initiative is Africa. According to UNESCO, around two-thirds of the population in Africa is under 25-years-old, a vast majority lack higher education and job skills. Contributing to African youth high unemployment, is the dearth of colleges and technical schools needed to train young people in today’s competitive technological market place.

Irina Bokova, the Director General of UNESCO said, “The best answer to youth unemployment is to ensure that young people acquire the basic skills and relevant training they need to enter the world of work with confidence. Many youth, and women in particular, need to be offered alternative pathways to education, so that they gain the skills to earn a living, live in dignity and contribute to their communities and societies.”


Bramson ORT College is recruiting students from a number of African countries beginning with Ghana. Ghana is the initial pilot country, because of the high youth population who do not have access to higher education in Ghana or abroad. Bramson ORT College will give African students affordable education packages to attend 2-year programs and receive an Associate Degree, enabling them to achieve the education and skills needed for the job market, to go back home to work, start a business, teach or transfer to a 4-year college in the U.S. to further their education. Bramson ORT has a fast track three semester program allowing students to complete a degree program in 18 months.

Bramson ORT College offers a quality education at an affordable price, additionally a number of scholarship opportunities exist for those who demonstrate a strong academic potential. Bramson Ort has also assigned a dedicated Admissions Advisor to help International students navigate the school application process and the visa application process. The admission office can be contacted at 718 261-5800 extension 1010, or contact  ebronfman@bramsonort.edu.

Because of this, the faculty and administrative staff at Bramson ORT have created a flexible and welcoming environment for transfer students who have been disappointed or frustrated by their previous college choices, or are simply looking for change! In keeping with Bramson ORT’s mission to offer an outstanding education at affordable prices, transfer students who have decided to continue their education here can quickly begin the process of transferring their pre-existing college credit to Bramson ORT.

Understanding the Credit Transfer Process

In order to ensure that students are able to maximize their credit transfers, it’s important to first clarify who exactly qualifies for transfer status at Bramson ORT. Transfer students are commonly defined as those who have previously attended a degree-granting, post-secondary institution. Common examples of transfer students and their backgrounds include:

     Students who are changing their degree program and seeking an institution better suited to their desired profession.
     Students who, for whatever reason, have been forced to relocate geographically.

There are no immediate disqualifications for classes or degree programs, although the actual number of credits transferred is determined through an analysis of previous college transcripts. During the initial registration process, students can request a preliminary evaluation of their prior coursework in order to learn which of the classes they have already taken can be rolled over into their new degree track. Credit can only be transferred from institutions that have been accredited by a regional accrediting commission.

Students who are interested in transferring credit to Bramson ORT are asked to provide these materials during Admissions Process:

     Official copies of previous transcripts.
     An official course description for each class being transferred.

Transfer Credit Requirements

Bramson ORT makes every effort to ensure that transfer students receive as much qualifying transfer credit as possible during the registration process. Course credits are deemed fit for transfer if they are equivalent in content and credit weight to classes offered at Bramson ORT. Once a suitable match has been found, students will be given the matching transfer credit if they have received a grade of ‘C’ or better in the previous course. If a student is seeking to transfer credit for a course that is required for successful completion of their degree, they must have completed the previous course within a five-year period prior to enrollment at Bramson ORT.

After a transfer request has been made, the Office of the Dean of Academic Services will review each student’s course selections and academic history in order to ensure that the best possible outcome is achieved.
