DegreeWorks is a computerized, web-based degree audit program and academic advising tool to assist students and their advisors in reviewing their progress toward graduation.

Students who may not be able to take a needed course at their home (BCC) campus can find listings and descriptions of similar courses at other CUNY (host) colleges. The ePermit process is an approval from the home college for students to transfer a course back to the institution. Click here to login to ePermit
Eligibility to File a Permit
- be matriculated and currently in attendance
- have a cumulative GPA of 2.00
- have no service indicators (holds) on their record
- have all required immunizations completed
Permits will not be issued to the following students:
- Non-degree students
- A readmitted matriculated student who is not currently enrolled or who does not need the permit course for graduation.
- An incoming newly matriculated student who requests a permit for the semester or summer session preceding his/her effective date of admission
An approval of a permit request remains in the hands of faculty advisors at a student's home college. Students must obtain approval in advance to take courses at another college in order for courses to be credited towards the degrees at BCC.
Prior to taking courses at another institution students should inquire at the host college for registration dates and procedures governing permit students. Issuance of a permit does not guarantee enrollment at the host college.
For courses taken on permit at other CUNY colleges students must pay for courses at BCC. Students will pay for an approved course when they pay for other courses at their home college.
