Students may begin their studies in September or January, or as indicated in the Academic Calendar for that year. To apply for admission to the College a prospective student must complete the following steps:
Submit a completed application form, together with a non-refundable fee of $25, to the Admissions Department at one of the following locations:
Manhattan Campus at Audubon Terrace Center
3755 Broadway (156 St.), New York, NY 10032 email@example.com
Contact all high schools and colleges or other post-secondary institutions previously attended, and request an official academic transcript and a financial aid transcript be forwarded directly to the Admissions Department.
Be interviewed by an Admissions Counselor. Information about financial aid is then provided and applicants are scheduled to meet with a financial aid counselor. (See also academic requirements for federal and state financial aid in the section on "Financial Aid").
Complete a written diagnostic examination to guide the faculty in designing a suitable educational program.
Complete an individual or group oral interview conducted by an Admissions committee of faculty members who make the final decision about the prospective student's ability to function in the College's programs. That decision is based primarily on the committee's judgment regarding the candidate's academic competence and ability to devote full-time to college level studies; to integrate academic, employment, family and community responsibility into a coherent program of educational development; the candidate's level of maturity and self-discipline to assume progressively larger responsibilities for academic planning, development and evaluation; the candidate's genuine interest in the problems and needs of the community.
Following the review of an applicant's file a written notification of the decision is mailed to the applicant signed by a Senior Administrator from Student Services, Admissions or Faculty. Other detailed policies regarding admissions may be found in the manual of the Admissions Department.
Students Without a High School Diploma
Students admitted without a high school diploma or G.E.D. are required to be counseled during admission, may be admitted as a "Special Admit" and required to pass an independently administered test approved by the Federal Education Department in order to qualify for financial aid.
