BMCC's student resources are provided in accordance with the CUNY policy. Students can expect their information to be protected in the following ways, as reiterated in a recent message from the Chancellor:

  • CUNY will protect student record information in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act;
  • CUNY will not turn over student information to immigration enforcement authorities except pursuant to court order;
  • CUNY will not request or gather information about students' citizenship or immigration status in the course of providing educational or other services or in connection with public safety activities except as required in connection with tuition or financial aid eligibility; and
  • CUNY will not permit immigration enforcement officials to enter its campuses except to the extent required by a warrant or court order.
