MAKE THE CITY YOUR CLASSROOM

Welcome to BMCC

Borough of Manhattan Community College

(BMCC) is accredited by the Middle States

Commission of Higher Education and offers

a wide range of academic programs that will

prepare you for a successful future. 

BMCC is the affordable, inclusive, and smart way to begin your university experience in the U.S.
 


Why Community College?
 

BMCC is a community college. A

community college is a 2 year, junior college

where you can complete your first 2 years

and earn an Associate degree. After earning

an Associate degree, many BMCC students

transfer to a 4 year, senior college to earn

a Bachelor’s degree. This is much less

expensive than doing all 4 years at a senior

college.
