Ready to Apply for College? This School Adapts to Your Needs and Your Schedule

Applying for college can be an overwhelming experience. You may find yourself asking an endless list of questions: Am I making the right decision? Is this the right time for me? How do I select the school that best suits my needs? Can I afford the tuition?

With the right guidance, however, the admissions process can actually be a smooth and enjoyable experience. Touro College’s New York School of Career and Applied Studies, also known as NYSCAS, offers a uniquely efficient and responsive admissions process.

NYSCAS is an undergraduate college with campuses across NYC metro area. Offering multiple degrees in a variety of subjects and a small average class size, this school is the right fit for those who are looking for a custom-made college experience.

A Fast and Easy Admissions Process

Touro College’s NYSCAS has a three-step admissions process. The school accepts applications on a rolling basis, so you can apply at any time of the year. Students can either complete their application independently, or with the help of one of the school’s admissions counselors. In your application, you will be asked to provide some basic information about yourself and to indicate which degree and major you are considering to pursue.

You are then going to be able to schedule a one-on-one meeting with one of the Admissions Counselors. During this meeting, you will get the chance to ask any questions you may have about the school, and the counselor will help you understand if NYSCAS is the right fit for you.

Shortly after the meeting, successful applicants receive their acceptance notice. Depending on their education background, some applicants may be asked to complete a placement testing before they can enroll in their classes and bstart their academic career with NYSCAS.

“Over the ten years I have worked at NYSCAS, I’ve gotten to guide each student I’ve interacted with on a personal level, seeing them thrive as they fulfill their goals,” says Belkis Moquete-Defex, Assistant Director of Recruiting.

Moquete-Defex understands the needs of the students on a deeply personal level, because she used to be a NYSCAS student herself. “While I was a student, I enrolled in the Federal Work Study Program, during which I worked at the registrar’s office,” she explains. “It’s no surprise that I’m so binvested in the school and the success of our students.”

A Custom-Made College Experience

What makes NYSCAS truly unique and different from other colleges in New York City, is how customizable the experience can be for its students. The majority of our students receive financial aid each year,” Moquete-Defex says. “We offer free tutoring in virtually all subjects, and our academic counselors are always there to help the students pick the right major and the right classes for them.”

NYSCAS offers its students the ability to personalize their college experience according to their schedule and responsibilities. Depending on your schedule, you will be able to enroll in daytime, evening, or Sunday classes, which are currently being offered online via videoconference (synchronous), fully online (unsynchronous) and in-person. NYSCAS offers degrees in the fields of business, education, information technology, digital multimedia design, human services, social sciences, psychology, biology, nursing, medical imaging, paralegal studies, and more. All of the degrees are career-oriented and follow a curriculum focused on the professional knowledge you’ll need in the workplace.
