Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I have a CCT?
By having the CCT, you demonstrate your commitment, extra effort and ability to achieve in college, which will help to set you apart from other applicants, thereby giving you the “Competitive Edge” when applying to colleges, for scholarships and employment.

When is the best time to activate my CCT?
The best time to start your CCT is during your first year at BMCC. The sooner you begin, the more complete your CCT will look. Your CCT will be automatically activated at the end of the semester when you complete your first CCT eligible activity.

How are activities included on my CCT?
Your activities will be automatically added to your CCT by an administrator at the end of the semester as long as these activities are fully completed and CCT certified.

When will my activities be added by to my CCT?
Activities will be added to your CCT around two weeks after the end of the semester. Keep in mind that other factors may influence when activities may be added to your CCT.

May I include employment experience on my CCT?
No, employment experiences or any paid activity (such as a paid internship or work-study) should be documented on your resume. If you would like assistance in creating or to have someone go over your resume with you, please stop by the Center for Career Development to speak with a Career Advisor.

May I include off-campus activities on my CCT?
Off-campus activities may be included on your CCT if they are CCT certified and sponsored or approved by BMCC.

Is there a cost for an official copy of my CCT?
There is no cost at all.

How long is my CCT kept after I leave BMCC?
Your CCT is kept on file for 15 years. If necessary, please email us at CCT@bmcc.cuny.edu for assistance.

What is the difference between an official CCT and an unofficial CCT?
The official CCT is distributed by the College and bears the College’s raised seal, watermark, and the signature of the Chief Student Affairs Officer. The unofficial transcript may be printed by the student at any time from the BMCC Portal and will have the word “unofficial” printed across the page.

To whom may my CCT be sent?
The official CCT may be sent, for example, to employers, colleges and scholarship boards.

Who has access to my CCT?
Only select administrators and BMCC staff have access to your CCT.

What should I do if an activity is missing from my CCT?
An activity may be missing from your CCT for a few reasons such as incomplete requirements, the activity is not CCT certified, etc. If you believe that a certified activity is missing from your CCT, please email us at CCT@bmcc.cuny.edu for further assistance.
