Real Estate Institute Application

The Admissions Process 

Fordham PCS utilizes a holistic or “whole file” admissions approach in reviewing applications for matriculation into its degree and advanced certificate programs. This approach helps ensure the consideration of a wide range of applicant qualities, and takes into account a broad base of evidence in rendering admissions decisions.

Application Deadlines

We accept students on a rolling basis, therefore applications are reviewed as they are submitted.  While the start date of classes is the deadline for any given semester, the preferred deadline for fall admission is June 1 and for spring admission is November 1. International applicants are strongly encouraged to apply by April 1 for fall admission and October 15 for Spring admission.


Our application system allows you to enter multiple times to add, edit and upload various documents to your record. We help you track your progress by sending you reminders throughout the way. If you need help, please email us at [email protected] or call 212-636-7333.
