Bramson ORT College is an undergraduate college in New York City operated by ORT America and US ORT Operations, the American branch of the Jewish charity World ORT. Its main campus is in Forest Hills, Queens, with a satellite campus in Brooklyn.
Bramson ORT College opened in 1977 at a location on 23rd Street and Park Avenue South in Manhattan, to provide technical education at the college level.
Bramson ORT College is accredited by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York. Associate's degree, certificate and diploma programs are registered by the New York State Education Department, which has accredited the school since 1979. Bramson ORT College is a not-for-profit educational institution.
Starting in fall 2008, the school will offer boys aged 16-20 a curriculum of yeshiva studies in the morning and vocational training in the afternoon, in a joint program with Chabad aimed at students at risk of dropping out of a traditional yeshiva program. Upon completion of the program, students will receive a GED (for those without a high school diploma), as well as an Associate of Arts degree in their chosen area of study.
