BMCC and Pace sign agreement

June 8, 2022

A new partnership between the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC/CUNY) and Pace University is offering transfer opportunities for BMCC students. On June 8, Dr. Anthony E. Munroe, President of Borough of Manhattan Community College and Dr. Marvin Krislov, President of Pace University, participated in a signing ceremony to announce the program, which will be available Fall 2022.

President Munroe says the articulation agreement supports BMCC’s strategic goal to address student retention and eliminate equity gaps for all students in every discipline.

“All students should have the opportunity to fulfill their dream of earning a bachelor’s degree from fine institutions, like Pace University,” said President Munroe. “This partnership is one of many collaborations established to ensure students have access to higher education. We are very proud of this partnership and we hope many of our students take advantage of this program.”

Through this partnership, students who are graduating from BMCC with an Associate of Science/Arts are eligible for the College/Pace University Articulation leading to a Bachelor of Science/Arts in the appropriate programs at the University.

In this program, students who complete their associate degree with a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 (or better) are guaranteed admission to Pace University in 42 of its programs including Art, Biochemistry, Marketing, Finance, Management, Entrepreneurship, Criminal Justice and Childhood Education.
