Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
