Things to Know about Readmission

Your Application

  • No fee is required at the time of submission. A $20 readmit fee will be applied on your tuition bill.
  • Your application for readmission will be reviewed within 2-3 business days. You will receive an email with next steps.

Readmission After Being Academically Dismissed

If you took time away from BMCC because you were academically dismissed, we want to make sure you have a strong restart. Before you come back to school, we want to hear your story. We want to know what happened in the past and work with you to make a plan to get back on track. The Committee on Academic Standing’s (CAS) will review your case and make sure you have people in your corner to support you as you succeed.

  1. Download and complete the CAS Appeal form. This form and the personal statement you will attach to it are your chance to tell your story and document your situation.
  2. Write a personal statement and gather documentation (see “Helpful Hints” here CAS Appeal).
  3. Save your personal statement and supporting documentation as a PDF file.
  4. Set up an Appointment with a Counselor. Let’s talk and make a plan for you to reach your goals.

When you have completed Steps 1-3, email with a simple message introducing yourself. Attach your CAS Appeal Form and personal statement.

Request an appointment by completing the Appeals Request Form. Once the Counseling Center receives your request, appeal form and personal statement, they will reach out to you with details about your appointment to speak with a counselor.

For assistance with any portion of the CAS Appeal process, please contact the BMCC Counseling Center.
