BMCC CUNY Language Immersion Program (CLIP)

BMCC CUNY Language Immersion Program (CLIP) offers CUNY ESL students intensive instruction in all English skills, especially reading and writing, to prepare for credit-bearing college courses. BMCC CLIP classes are located uptown in New York City's historic Harlem neighborhood.

Who can be a CLIP Student?
If English is not your first language and you have been accepted to a CUNY college and the results of your CUNY Assessment tests show you need to take ESL remedial courses before you are ready to take courses for credit, CLIP is for you! Our goal is to help you to be more successful in college.

You can attend the BMCC CUNY Language Immersion Program (CLIP) if:

  • You are a freshman or transfer student from BMCC (or from another CUNY college) who didn't pass the CUNY tests because English is not your first language
  • You have a recommendation from the ESL department or from a counselor

If you are an international student with a student visa, you must go to the BLIIS program instead of CLIP.
