Admission to New York ADI

NYADI is licensed by the New York State Education Department, accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), approved by the United States Department of Education and the Veterans Administration and recognized by Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF), NYS Department of Labor, NYS Office of Vocational Rehabilitation and the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles.

NYADI accepts as regularly admitted students those applicants who are high school graduates or the equivalent and are seventeen (17) years of age (with parental consent) or older. Non high school graduates must successfully pass an independently administered ability to benefit (ATB) entrance examination.  All such students are required to score at or above federally approved minimum test cut-off scores on a federally approved entrance exam.  An extensive and comprehensive admissions interview, evaluation, and assessment process is required of all perspective students. At the conclusion of the enrollment process, the Executive Director, Registrar and Academic Chairman will determine which applicants are accepted into the institution and are placed onto the final roster.
