Briarcliffe was founded in 1966, as a one-year business school in Hicksville, New York.
The New York State Education Department authorized Briarclffe to offer the two-year associate degree in occupational studies.
Briarcliffe become regionally accredited and the school and faculty earned the right to be called Briarcliffe "College". One year later, the college became a 4-year college able to grant baccalaureate degrees. It was purchased by and is a subsidiary of Career Education Corporation.
Career Education Corp., one of the largest U.S. for-profit college corporations agreed to pay more than $10 million to settle the state of New York’s claim that the company systematically deceived students by advertising bogus job placement rates at its career-oriented schools.
Briarcliffe College announced that it was no longer accepting new students and would be closed on December 31, 2018.
