First Time Applicants
Whether you are an incoming freshman, a transfer student, a visiting student from another institution, a student looking to take just a few classes with us or wanting to earn your full degree, you have come to the right place.
Before you can submit a first-time application you will need to create an application portal account.
After you have your account, you will be able to submit your application for admission, view the status of your application, and retrieve important information about your student account to aid you in your next steps in enrollment.
*Students who have previously applied to Brookdale should not submit a new application to re-enroll. Click here for information about returning to Brookdale as a student.
How do I complete an application?
First, you will need to create an application portal account by clicking on the “Online Application” button above and then clicking the “Create Account” link on the sign in screen. Once you have created your account, click on the button in the middle of your My Applications section of the portal to begin working on your application.
To access an application in progress and continue your work on it, log back into your application portal and click on your application to continue working. Please note, you will no longer be able to edit your application after it has been fully submitted. Only applications with a status of “Started” may be edited.
How can I access an application I've already started?
Log back into your application portal here to resume working on your application. Please note, online applications that have not been submitted will be available to edit. If you wish to make a change to an application that has already been submitted or accepted, please contact the Admissions Office at 732-224-1857.
How do I submit an application?
Check your work carefully. When you are satisfied with it and are ready to sent it to us, click the “Submit Application” button on the last page. You will be directed to the payment pages to complete your payment of the application fee. After completing payment, your application will be submitted to the college.
Note: Your application is not fully submitted until you pay your application fee and it have been authorized.
How do I pay my application fee?
On the payment page, you can pay your application fee with a debit or credit card.
Is my account private?
Yes, the server stores all information you enter under the private username and password you establish.
How secure is my payment transaction?
Your debit/credit card information is encrypted during transmission from your browser to our server and during payment authorization. None of your debit/credit card information is stored in our database.
Is all my application data secure?
The information you enter is encrypted and secure when you save it and when you send it.
Although general data collected on the system may be used in statistical studies and reports designed to assist institutions with planning, any information bearing your personal identification is disclosed only to the department to which you sent it.
How do I know if my application was received?
The My Applications section of your portal allows you to track the status of your application once it is submitted to Brookdale. The status is displayed to the right of your submitted application.
Applications with a status of “Started” have not yet been submitted for review by the college. Please note that payment of the application fee is required to complete your application submission.
Applications with a status of “Submitted” are complete and payment of the application fee has been made. We will begin working on your application review at this stage.
Applications with a status of “Completed” have been moved to our student database and are one step away from being accepted.
Applications with a status of “Accepted” have been accepted to the institution. To view your decision letter, click on the “View” link to the right of your accepted application.
