    Welcome to the Application

    Welcome to Bank Street’s online application! Our application includes a series of questions related to your educational and life experiences, giving you the opportunity to reflect on these experiences and share why you have decided to apply to Bank Street. 

    Once you have started the application, the left-hand side contains a navigation menu that will lead you through all of the components of the application. Although much of the information will be submitted online, there are elements of the application process that need to be done separately from the online application. Things like official transcripts and test scores (if applicable) can be sent to the following address:

    Bank Street College of Education
    Office of Graduate Admissions
    610 West 112th Street
    New York, NY 10025

    If you have the option to send transcripts or test scores online, please have them sent to to ensure they are received and processed. 

    Keep track of your application status by following the link you'll receive upon beginning your application. This status page will allow you to see whether or not we've received materials like transcripts, test scores, and letters of recommendation. Once we receive all of the necessary components of your application, a faculty member may contact you to schedule an interview if they find you to be a strong candidate. The entire application generally takes around 4 weeks to complete. 

    As an institution of higher education, we support our students to become professionals who seek to understand individuals with an array of strengths, linguistic backgrounds, and learning challenges. Therefore, we understand the value of having students from diverse backgrounds who have an understanding into their own strengths and struggles. These insights will guide them as they develop their professional knowledge and skills. Please keep this in mind as you reflect on your own journey through this application process. 

    Good luck applying to the Graduate School! If you have any questions, do not hesitate to give us a call at 212-875-4404 or email us at
