About Vaughn College
Vaughn College is dedicated to providing a distinctive education to a diverse population of students. Our mission is to create an environment that cultivates personal growth and leadership in preparation for successful careers. 

Located close to exciting New York City and adjacent to LaGuardia Airport, Vaughn is a small, degree-granting college–with a big commitment to student success. We recently added a $1 million, state-of-the-art flight simulator laboratory, invested another $300,000 in a new engineering laboratory and residence hall and recently completed $40 million expansion of our academic and training facilities that includes a new library. The result: a state-of-the-art campus–with sweeping views of Manhattan–where you'll find a culture of excellence and rigorous degree, professional, technical and certification programs.

Vaughn College provides a culture of excellence in which rigorous degree, professional, technical and certification programs are offered. These programs, built on our aeronautical heritage, incorporate the latest technology and meet the universal needs of the industries they serve. The result: well-educated graduates who are trained, qualified and successful in their fields.
New York
Vaughn College is just minutes from Manhattan, the most exciting, culturally diverse city in the world–and from Long Island's world-famous sandy shores. Our campus is a hub of activity with opportunities for connecting and engaging with faculty and friends.

Take public transportation to the best in sports (the Mets' home, Citi Field, is only a few miles from campus), entertainment and museums and the most trendy, exciting clubs and restaurants anywhere.  Take the train east to the beach, or stay right here in our Queens neighborhood, which is home to its own museums, zoos and the U.S. Open

Why Study at Vaughn College
Explore the innovative field of mechatronics–which uniquely combines the elements of mechanical, electronic and computer engineering to design "smart" technology as an undergraduate–or soar into a more exciting career with a master's degree in airport management. Vaughn is one of the few colleges to offer both. Our aviation students spread their wings in our new million-dollar flight simulator lab featuring two Redbirds, the aeronautical industry's most technologically advanced simulators.

With such stimulating undergraduate and graduate programs, a state-of-the-art campus close to exciting New York City and a faculty that's grounded in real-life experience, Vaughn prepares you to take your place in today's in-demand fields. In fact, 92 percent of our graduates are employed or continue their educations within one year of graduation.

Outside the classroom, Vaughn students get together, work together and have fun together in our student clubs, professional societies, honor societies and in intercollegiate athletics. Such clubs include the Student Government Association (SGA), Vaughn Air Traffic Control Organization, Women in Aviation and the Veterans Club.
International Students
Vaughn College’s Cultural Immersion Program is structured to develop students’ basic English communication skills (listening and speaking) with a main focus on aviation terminology. The program will also provide students with hands-on experience in the fields of aviation, air traffic control, avionics and mechanical engineering to advance their knowledge and possible pursuit of a diploma in aeronautics. In addition, students will experience American culture, in particular the cultural diversity and the exciting offerings of New York City.

The College currently implements this program for many different countries. Each program is individually tailored to specific country and group needs, and the length of the program is also determined independently. This summer Vaughn will be hosting groups from China, Ireland, Turkey and the West Indies.
