Bronx Community College will confer a degree upon a student who has completed all College requirements towards graduation. However, a student must also be in good standing with the College in order to graduate and receive a degree. Accordingly, a student who has completed all academic requirements will not be eligible to graduate or receive a degree until any outstanding financial balance or disciplinary matter against him/her has been resolved and any disciplinary penalty completed.
Students who have not demonstrated proficiency in CUNY Skills Assessment Tests are placed into developmental reading, writing and math. Developmental courses do not fulfill degree requirements and are pre-requisites to credit-bearing courses. Examples of developmental courses are ENG 1, RDL 1 and MTH 1. Read the college catalog for specific course descriptions.
