TOP 5 REASONS TO GET AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE FROM BCC:
Starting here can mean big savings for you and your family. As part of the CUNY system, we are among a network of colleges that are consistently ranked as best colleges for your money. Paying for college is a big consideration when the cost of annual tuition at private four-year institutions is on average $35,000. Alternatively, the annual cost of tuition at a CUNY 4-year college is $6,930 per academic year, and at BCC tuition comes in at $4,800 per year. What does this mean? By choosing to start at BCC and finish your Bachelor’s degree at Lehman you will save over $2,000 per year to earn your Associate degree. In addition, if you qualify for financial aid (Pell and Tap Grant) you may attend for free. In fact, 90% of our students attend cost free! To learn more connect with one of our admissions counselors.
