Although you can submit your application after the deadline, we cannot guarantee that it will be reviewed for the semester you requested. Please check the status of your application 6-8 weeks after submission by emailing admissions@cuny.edu or calling the CUNY Office of Admissions at (212) 997-2869.

If you are admitted, BMCC will email a letter of admission with instructions to apply for a SEVIS I-20. After you receive your BMCC SEVIS I-20, the next step is to apply for an F-1 student visa at the United States embassy or consulate in your home country.

We hope to welcome you to BMCC soon!
