Founded in 1963, Borough of Manhattan Community College, or BMCC is one of six two-year colleges within the City University of New York (CUNY) system and the only one in Manhattan. Originally, BMCC offered business-oriented and liberal arts degrees for those intending to enter the business world or transfer to a four-year college. Its original campus was scattered all over midtown Manhattan, utilizing office space wherever available. In the mid-1970s CUNY began scouting for suitable property on which to erect a new campus of its own. The current campus has been in use since 1983. Currently, with an enrollment of over 17,000 students, BMCC grants associate's degrees in a wide variety of vocational, business, health, science, and continuing education fields. As with all schools in the City University system, students must complete the CUNY Proficiency Exam upon completing their second year in order to obtain the associate's degree or transfer to a baccalaureate program at one of CUNY's four-year colleges.
