You may also have the opportunity to hear from current students.

Info Sessions are held at the Year Up NCR – Arlington site, which is located at 1901 South Bell Street Suite 100, Arlington (Crystal City), VA. We are one block away from the Crystal City METRO station. We look forward to seeing you soon.

These appointments include an academic assessment, as well as a group and one-on-one interview. For all appointments and interviews, be prepared to arrive on time and dressed in professional attire.
