Incoming Freshmen

Welcome to BMCC! We are delighted that you have decided to join the BMCC family.

What is Academic Advisement?

Academic advisement is a collaborative process between you, the student, and an academic or faculty advisor with the purpose of helping you reach your educational, professional and personal goals.

At BMCC, all matriculated students are required to meet with an advisor each semester prior to registration for the following term. In addition, incoming students must complete orientation offered by Student Affairs’ New Student Programs.

In order to be advised, you must either be exempt/proficient in writing, reading and mathematics or have a proficiency/placement information posted to your record. English as Second Language (ESL) learners may also be required to take a diagnostic in writing and reading. You can consult with the Testing Office at for more information.
