Application Process
Admission to NYCTCM is considered on a continuous basis. New students are admitted to the college for Fall (September), Winter (January), and Spring (May) trimesters. Prospective students are encouraged to apply for admission well in advance of the start of classes due to limited class size. Students needing financial aid should apply at least 90 days prior to the start of the trimester. Prospective students are invited to attend an NYCTCM Open House for an overview of the programs, a tour of the facility, open discussion, and information on the application process.
