Admissions Process

The iSchool is considered a screened school in New York City. The iSchool believes firmly in informed choice, so primarily uses its status as a screened school to ensure that students want to be at the iSchool. The school does this through requiring prospective students to complete an online admissions activity, designed to assess students' interest in the school. For the 2022-2023 school year, the NYC iSchool will not be using any grades or test scores in our admissions screen – we will only be using our online admissions activity. 

Please note that the iSchool is part of New York City's Diversity in Admissions program. This means that we will give admissions priority to applicants who are eligible for free/reduced lunch (based on family income) for up to 67% of our seats.
