Are your credits transferable?

Credits are not guaranteed to be transferable to other institutions. These determinations are made by the school or college receiving the student. Some institutions may consider acceptance of credits, subject to a review of transcripts and course descriptions.

Do you accept International Students?

Yes. Our New York locations work with international students. International students will be eligible for an M-1 visa status.

Is there career placement assistance?

Every program includes career preparation sessions that are designed to review hiring procedures, help you write your resume, and improve your employment interview skills. When you graduate, the Career Services Office helps match you with potential employers, many of whom call on us throughout the year to fill available staff openings. Although we cannot guarantee employment, we are committed to securing positions for our student population. Placement assistance is available either when you graduate or at any future time you wish to use this service.

In 2013, over 1300 Graduates were employed in a career related field.

How do I have to dress for class?

Students must appear neat and well groomed at all times. Each campus provides all students with the required uniform, including jackets, pants, shoes, aprons, scrubs and hats (depending on program). Long hair must be pinned up under the hat. Proper hygiene is particularly important in classes. Students are responsible for keeping themselves and their uniforms clean at all times. Fingernails must be trimmed to a moderate length and must be well manicured. The use of nail polish is not permitted. Men with beards and/or mustaches must keep them trimmed. For safety reasons, only necessary equipment and materials may be brought into the kitchens, clinics and classrooms. Watches and wedding rings are the only items of jewelry that may be worn. Students who are improperly dressed will not be admitted to class and will be marked absent for the day.
