The first 60 credits, resulting in the AS Degree, are taken at BCC. To graduate from the AS Degree program, students must satisfy course requirements as well as college-wide requirements. Students who successfully complete the AS Degree in Biotechnology with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 and 2.75 in the sciences, will be accepted into the CCNY B.S. program.
The Science for Forensics (SFF) Associate in Science (AS) degree program is part of a joint program between Bronx Community College and John Jay College of Criminal Justice for students with a strong interest in science, law and public service. BCC graduates of the Science for Forensics AS program will continue their studies at John Jay College where they will earn a Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science. To enter the Forensic Science program at John Jay, BCC graduates must have a 2.5 or better GPA in foundation coursework. Creation of this 2 + 2 partnership in forensic science opens up a new opportunity for New York City area students to receive an excellent education leading to exciting career paths.
