How to Apply to Brookdale

All new students - whether interested in a single course or full-time study – must submit a completed Brookdale application form to the Office of Admissions. 

Please note: if you have previously applied to, or attended, Brookdale in the past, you do not need to re-apply; you will be in the system. 

There are two easy ways to apply:

  1. You may apply onlineclick here to start the application process.
  2. You may apply in person by visiting our main campus in Lincroft (at the Center for Counseling, Admissions and Registration (CAR), Parking Lot 5) or stop into one of our convenient Regional Locations in Freehold, Hazlet, Long Branch, Neptune or Wall.

Applicants may enter any Brookdale program of study – with the exception of the Health Sciences programs (Nursing, Respiratory Therapy, and Radiologic Technology) and the Automotive Technology programs ASEP and T-TEN. These require an additional step – contact the Admissions office for complete details.

On your application, you will be asked whether you will be a degree student (matriculated) or non degree student. All degree students must take the Basic Skills test to determine ability to do college level work.

Applicants with specific questions should contact the Admissions Office at 732-224-2375.
