Financing Your NYCC education

Loan Programs

Canadian government and provincial student aid are available through your province. Types and amounts of aid vary by province and academic program. NYCC's Financial Aid Office can assist you in meeting your financial obligations and encourages you to meet with a financial aid counselor early in the admissions process to discuss your financing options. Contact our Financial Aid Office or visit www.canlearn.ca for more information.

Scholarship and Award Opportunities

NYCC offers more than 500 scholarship awards each year, totaling almost three-quarters of a million dollars. In addition to NYCC's institutional scholarships, our students also receive a number of private scholarship awards from individual donors, alumni, chiropractic organizations and foundations.

On-Campus Student Employment

Immigration and Visa Information

At New York Chiropractic College, applying for your student visa (Form I-20) is an easy-to-manage process.

Student Visa Process

To be issued a Federal Form I-20, you must:

  1. Be accepted into the NYCC Doctor of Chiropractic program.
  2. Submit the International Student Certification of Finances Worksheet (as provided by Admissions), along with all supporting documentation. It's best to complete this worksheet about two months before anticipated start date. However, it is possible to accelerate the process if necessary.
  3. Provide any additional required documentation, as requested by NYCC's Designated School Official (DSO).
  4. Watch your postal mailbox for your I-20 paperwork. The Admissions Office will mail this information to students once all documentation is received and processed.
  5. Pay a SEVIS processing fee before crossing the U.S. border, and provide printed proof of payment at the border.

Your student visa can be issued any time once all of this is complete, but please note that it is only valid for 30 days prior to the start of your anticipated first trimester.

Note: Canadian citizens are not required to obtain a visa at a U.S. Consulate or Embassy, but will be required to process the Federal I-20 Form (provided by NYCC) at the U.S. Border.
