Title V Services

VIDEO: Where Science and Law Intersect
Science Professors Jayant and Kosky describe the new Science for Forensics program, as well as the services and support available to minority students.

Thanks to funds provided by a Title V education grant, BMCC has developed an array of support programs to help eligible minority students find success at both BMCC and John Jay College.

A Stipend of more than $2,500 will be provided to eligible students over the two year span of the program.

Pre-Freshmen Forensics Immersion Program, from June 1st through July 9th, aimed at easing the transition into college.

Ancillary Programs include internships and summer programs for high school students.

Supplemental Instruction is provided with weekly review sessions that are meant to supplement class lectures and recitations. These small group review sessions are run by SI leaders, advanced students from BMCC and JJC's science programs.

Peer Mentors know what new students are going through, and are a vital resource for transitioning into college and finding success.

Academic Advisement is provided by a Peer Advisor, who will augment faculty efforts by providing ongoing advisement to students during late afternoon, evenings and weekends. The Advisor will help create an individualized academic support plan.

Advisement Manual will be provided, containing program worksheets, course requirements, study skills information, writing lab reports, college resources, and articles written by Forensic Science upperclassmen describing their experiences and proving guidance.

Career Development provides a combination of career counseling and role model contacts, including career workshops and field trips.

Career Fairs provide an opportunity for each student to make a formal presentation to the CCRAA Science Conference, highlighting their research.
