How do I apply to Maria? What are the general admissions requirements?
There are three ways to apply: submit a paper application, submit an online application, or attend an Application Acceptance Day for instant admission, if qualified. Though we do not have a specific date by which your application must be submitted, the Committee on Admissions recommends that application be made well in advance of the semester for which you seek admission.
May I make an appointment to come in and speak with someone in Admissions?
Applicants should have average or above average high school academic performance, and must offer evidence of an anticipated or completed high school program or its equivalent. Accepted full- or part-time students in Nursing or Occupational Therapy Assistant must complete a physical examination form, which will be mailed to them upon acceptance. Students enrolled in these programs are required to have a physical examination each year.
There are also prerequisites for direct entry into specific programs, shown in the Prerequisites for Maria’s Degree Programs section and the Prerequisites for Maria’s Certificate Programs section.
Note: New York State Public Health Law 2165 requires students attending colleges and universities to demonstrate proof of immunity against measles, mumps and rubella. The law applies to persons born on or after January 1, 1957. The immunization form will be mailed to students upon their acceptance. Failure to submit required physical/immunization forms may result in forfeiture of space in a given program.
