International/VA Students

International Applicants (I-20)

NYCTCM has been authorized by the Department of Homeland Security to grant admission to full-time students from foreign countries. Nonimmigrant alien applicants are required to complete the regular application process and, in addition, must submit an I-20 application and an affidavit of financial support verifying that they have adequate resources to cover all expenses for one academic year and, barring unforeseen circumstances, that funds will be available for subsequent years. Permanent residents or refugees should use the regular application and admission procedures.

The I-20 will be issued when the application is complete and the student has been accepted into one of NYCTCM’s programs. Nonimmigrant students transferring from another approved school within the U.S. must also provide a copy of their current I-20, visa, and I-94 card upon application along with the completed school transfer information form. Nonimmigrant students are not eligible for U.S. federal financial aid.

Please contact us if you want more information on the application process for international students.

We have VA GI Bill students. Please contact us if you want more information.
