Hypnosis can help you control your critical factor; that’s the part of you that usually says “one brownie won’t hurt” or “I’ll start my diet next week.” When your critical factor is rewired to help you lose weight, you don’t have to count on willpower anymore!

CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS In order to earn a certificate, you must meet an 80% attendance requirement; except where otherwise noted receive a passing grade (grading is Pass/Fail although you may request a letter grade from your instructor at the first class), and complete all assignments. Most certificate programs are approved by the NYS Department of Education for the training of veterans and others eligible in accordance with Section 1775, Title 38, U.S. Code. STUDENT ADMISSION Kingsborough Community College reserves the right to deny admission to any student if in its judgment, the presence of that student on campus poses an undue risk to the safety or security of the college or the college community. That judgment will be based on an individualized determination taking into account any information the college has about the crime committed by the student and the particular circumstances of the college, including the presence of a child care center, public school or public school students on campus. In addition, the college may consider factors such as the amount of time since the crime was committed, the amount of jail time served by the student, the number of years the student was on probation or parole, whether the student has satisfied probation or parole requirements at the time of the student’s application, whether the student has completed drug, alcohol, sex offender or other treatment, and what work or educational experience the student has had after the conviction. Finally, if the student is known to have been assisted by a CUNY-sponsored or other re-entry program or initiative, the college will consult with a counselor or representative with said program.
