5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Every time I register for classes everything goes smoothly. There are many classes to choose from in anytime during the day.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I did not have any credits that can be transfer so it is not too bad. The only thing that frustrated me was financial aid. I can not receive any of it because I am not qualify, so I have to pay my tuition out of my own pocket and also scholarships that I won.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: You can always speak to them

4 Recent Alumnus

BMCC is fairly flexible when it comes to admissions and course availability. Students can transfer in from other institutions as long as they have a GPA over 2.0; those with lower GPAs are placed on a wait list. Course registration should be done early to ensure you get the class sections that best fit your schedule.
