Non-Degree Students

Sometimes a degree isn’t the ultimate goal…

Some students are seeking the opportunity to take college-level courses at BMCC to brush up on a subject area prior to sitting for an exam, changing careers, or in preparation for graduate work. Others may simply want to learn more about a particular area or interest. For these students, non-degree status is the perfect solution.

In order to apply to BMCC as a non-degree student, you must first complete the non-degree application.

Who is eligible?

  • Visiting students from other colleges
  • Students who have already earned a degree
  • Anyone who has completed high school or the equivalency exam

How to apply as a Non-Degree student:

  1. Complete the Non-Degree Application. (You will be redirected to create an account.)
  2. Upload your college transcript(s), or drop off at the BMCC Information Desk at the main campus, 199 Chambers Street, New York, NY 10007.
