    Click the “I Accept” button to tell us you are coming to BMCC. You can do this in the offer email we sent you or through your CUNYfirst student account.You may be prompted to pay a deposit when you accept in CUNYfirst. If you believe your financial aid will cover your commitment deposit, you may skip the payment portion of this step for now.
  3. Submit Your Immunization Form (MMR and Meningitis Form)
    It’s hard to make this step fun, but you’ll need to download and complete an MMR/Meningitis immunization form before you can register for classes. You will need to submit proof of two doses of measles, one of mumps and one of rubella. Submit a PDF via email to healthservices@bmcc.cuny.edu.If you graduated from a New York City public high school, we already have your immunization history. Please complete only the Meningitis Acknowledgement (Part 3).If you don’t have access to your vaccination records, contact BMCC Health Services at (212) 220-8256 or by email (listed above).
