To guarantee a place in the class, an accepted student in the following cohort programs must submit a $100 non-refundable tuition deposit prior to enrollment:
All accepted international (non-resident) students must submit a $500 non-refundable tuition deposit prior to enrollment, regardless of program. Details are explained below.
The deposit must be submitted at the time of acceptance of an offer of admission and is applied to the first year's tuition.
Matriculation to the Clinical Laboratory Sciences (CLS) program at New York Medical College is conditional upon student consent to and satisfactory completion of a Criminal Background Check conducted by Certiphi Screening, Inc. (payable by the student), and upon NYMC’s institutional review of such completed criminal background report. NYMC has sole discretion to rescind an offer of admission in the event any inaccurate, misleading or incomplete information is discovered in the student’s application or that post-dates their application as a result of this criminal background check. Matriculation is also contingent upon the submission of a 10 panel urine toxicology, which tests for: amphetamine, barbiturates, benzodiazepines, cocaine metabolites, marijuana metabolites, methadone, methaqualone, opiates, phencyclidine, propoxyphene. This test is performed at Westchester Medical Center at no charge to the student.
New students must bring their I-20 forms, passports and I-94 cards to the International Student and Scholar Advisor upon arrival. If you have questions about your visa status or are planning a trip outside the U.S., please contact Elizabeth Ward (firstname.lastname@example.org; 914-594-4846).
International students accepted to any of our M.S. degree programs must submit the two forms listed below, an original bank letter(s)/documentation notarized by a bank official confirming that support and tuition monies for the duration of your training are on deposit, as well as a $500 deposit before an I20 is issued. Ph.D. applicants need to submit these forms only if they are accompanied to the states by a dependent. International students are not eligible for student loans or government supported work/study programs. All financial documents must be dated no earlier than February 1st for Fall term admission. Thus, if you have previously submitted financial affidavits and supporting documentation that pre-date February 1st, you will need to submit new documents.
