  • Admissions Overview

    Applicants to all ASA College programs undergo a selection process that focuses on basic skills assessment. In evaluating candidates, we look for motivation and maturity, the potential to grow and develop, as well as evidence that applicants can benefit from the challenging education offered by the college.

    Admissions decisions are made without regard to age, gender, race, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin, physical capability, marital or parental status, or sexual orientation.

    How To Apply

    Step 1: Apply Online or In Person

    Begin your admissions process by submitting an online application or contacting us directly to set up an interview with one of our Admissions representatives.

    If you are unsure or wish to discuss your career goals and review our programs of study, feel free to contact us directly over phone or click chat with an associate.

    The $25 non-refundable application fee can be paid via check or money order.

    Step 2: Take the placement test

    The purpose of this test is to determine a student's level of preparation for credit-bearing college courses. If the results indicate that additional preparation is needed, remedial English and/or math courses will be incorporated into his/her class schedule. This approach ensures that all ASA students will benefit from their courses and can successfully graduate and get a job in their field of study.

    Step 3: Attend a one-on-one interview with an ASA Financial Aid representative

    Every prospective ASA student is guaranteed a personal and confidential meeting with a Financial Aid officer.

    The goal of this interview is to determine the best possible sources for funding your college education based on your eligibility for financial aid*. This includes scholarships available exclusively to ASA students and college work-study programs.

    Step 4: Create your class schedule

    To provide you with maximum flexibility in scheduling classes, ASA offers morning, afternoon and evening classes, 7 days  week at our Manhattan and Brooklyn campuses. You may also take any of our online courses.

  • New York State Applicants

    Candidates who have been accepted to the college may be required to meet with an academic advisor to discuss the need for college preparatory courses, if applicable, and register for their first semester of study.

    The overall objective of academic advising is to help students realize the maximum educational benefits available to them at ASA College.

  • Out-of-State Applicants

    Out of state residents interested in applying to ASA College must follow the same application guidelines as in-state students. Students must submit an application and attend an in-person interview to be considered for admissions to ASA College.

    However, if you are unable to attend an interview in person due to travel or other limitations, special steps can be taken to ensure incoming students are well informed by time of attendance.

    More so, ASA College provides various housing options for those interested in living on or off-campus. While available dorming rooms are limited, we provide a multitude of housing alternatives within close distance of our campuses.

    Important Information for Out-of-State Applicants:


    Out of State Applicants should consider, along with the general application guidelines, these following points:

    • Students applying for housing must do so in a timely manner. Dorming eligibility is based on several factors and limited to a first come, first served basis. To apply, you will need to contact an Admissions Advisor directly.
    • If students cannot attend an in-person interview at the time of application, you may request to have it deferred to a later day or choose to communicate via other means. Prospective out-of-state students are still required to attend at Freshman Orientation and a career advisement session prior to beginning the classes at ASA College.

    Applicants who have previously attended any regionally accredited post-secondary institution may be able to transfer courses comparable in content and length to ASA. Students are required to complete maximum of 50% of the courses in the  program. Transfer credit will be evaluated once an official copy of the  previous college transcript is received.

    A transcript is considered to be official when stamped with the official college seal, signed by the appropriate college official and received directly by ASA’s Registrar’s Office in a sealed envelope. Catalog and course descriptions may be  requested as well.

    Important Information for Transfer Students:

    Students considering transferring to ASA College should consider, along with the general application guidelines, these following points:

    • Applicants must submit official undergraduate transcripts from  previous college(s) to the Admissions Office for a transfer credit evaluation. It is the responsibility of an applicant to provide all the  necessary documentation in a timely  manner. Transfer credit will be considered for individual courses for        which a grade of “C” or better has been achieved.
    • Transfer students who have completed an English Composition and College Math course at an accredited institution with a grade of C or higher may be exempt from the placement test requirement. Please discuss this with your ASA Admissions associate.
    • Applicants who have completed course work at other accredited U.S. post-secondary institutions may apply for transfer credits and/or seek advanced placement. They should submit transfer credit requests, including official transcripts from previously attended colleges and accompanying documentation, before enrolling.
    • Students may be allowed transfer credits from colleges and universities in other countries for similar, verifiable, credit-bearing coursework. ASA will award academic credit evaluated on an individual basis for nationally recognized advanced placement examinations such as CLEP, DANTE, and/or Excelsior College (Regents) exams. Students may also be awarded credits for verifiable certifications obtained from nationally recognized organizations such as Microsoft, CICSO, and Sun Systems, etc.
