In order to meet the educational needs of the post Civil War public, Rufus C. Crampton established Sanford-Brown College in 1866. Originally founded in Illinois, the school now has 14 campus locations across the United States that are currently accepting students for enrollment. Sanford-Brown merged with the International Academy of Design & Technology in 2014. Sanford-Brown College now offers academic programs in the fields of design, technology, business and health. Programs award graduates with professional diplomas and certificates, as well as associate and bachelor's degrees.

All Sanford-Brown schools are institutionally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).

Student Life

Sanford-Brown does not offer housing to its students. Thus, students tend to live near the campus locations at which they attend. In the classroom, students will receive hands-on training on current technology relevant to their area of study. Externships are available for certain programs. Students have the option of creating a flexible class schedule, with day and evening classes available. Some design and technology programs can be completed entirely online. The Sanford-Brown Alumni Association boasts over 120,000 graduates, dedicated to providing unique benefits and professional development for graduates. The Career Services Department provides students with opportunities such as job fairs, networking events, resume building, and interview preparation.
