Whether you want to conquer the world of business, transfer to an Ivy League school, or develop into a world-class artist, we have the people and the programs to help you see your dreams through.

Ready to get started?

It’s easy to apply to Brookdale, and we’re here to help. You can apply at any time during the year and enroll as either a full-time or part-time student. Brookdale is an open admission college. We will accept anyone 18 years of age or older, anyone who is a high school graduate or holder of an equivalency diploma, or anyone who has been home-schooled and can document age-appropriate learning skills. (A limited number of programs have specific admission criteria which must be met.) If you don’t have a high school diploma, you may still enroll at Brookdale if you are 18 or older. Please see our Online Catalog for complete Admissions information.

If you are a high school sophomore, junior or senior and have written permission from your parents and high school guidance counselor to study in the Fast Start program, please refer to the admission requirements.

Worried that you might not be college-ready? Don’t be.

Whether you are coming to Brookdale directly from high school, or after years of life experience, we will administer placement testing to assure that you’re ready for college-level work. Already have college credits? Click here  to see if you are eligible for a full or partial test waiver.

Please note: Until further notice, Admissions, Records and Registration is closed every Thursday from 2:45-4:45pm for Student Success Division training and meetings.
