Bramson ORT college collaborated with B'derech, an organization run by Civil Court Judge Rachel Freier. The Bderech program[2] catered to the Chareidi and Chasidic communities of Flatbush Boro Park, Williamsburg, Monsey and beyond. Bderech students[3] participated in the ATB program earning their GED alongside their associate degree. The men's program began in 2012 and offered degrees in business, accounting, programming, networking and graphic design. The women's program began in the Spring 2014 semester and offered degrees in business, medical assisting, graphic design and paralegal.

Bramson ORT College was 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.[4] Bramson ORT College was a not-for-profit educational institution. Effective January 10, 2017, the New York State Education Department Board of Regents has denied Bramson Ort College’s renewal of accreditation. As a result, the college has stopped enrolling new students and is in the process of creating a teach-out plan for its currently enrolled students.[5]
