Admissions and Recruitment Information


The Admissions and Recruitment office at Hostos Community College encourages prospective students to meet with an admissions advisor regarding their higher educational goals. The advisor will help students examine their objectives, review admissions requirements, policies, and procedures.

How to Apply

The Application Process

All applicants must complete the appropriate City University of New York online application and provide the required documents, as specified below. Failure to file the correct application will result in a delay in processing for admission and may subject students to disciplinary action.

The priority application deadline for Fall is February 1st and Spring is September 15th. Be sure to read the instructions carefully and submit all necessary documentation. Note  that the City University of New York online application process is currently being updated so we recommend that you visit the webpage for updated details on both the freshman and transfer application process.

International Transfer Students can meet with an Admissions Advisor and file their online application. However, they must mail their application fee (if they did not pay by debit/credit card), official transcripts and translations (when applicable) directly to the University Application Processing Center (UAPC).
