AAMI is located in the heart of New York City. The Port Authority Bus Terminal, Penn Station, Grand Central Terminal and PATH trains are easily accessible and provide convenient transportation for the many students who commute from Connecticut, New Jersey, Long Island, Pennsylvania and elsewhere.
Bus and subway lines are within easy walking distance of AAMI and provide transportation to every part of the city. The many museums, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the Theater Center of Times Square, Madison Square Garden and the United Nations are easily accessible and provide unlimited cultural and recreational opportunities for students. Houses of worship are located nearby.
The school is open to visitors each weekday between the hours of 9 am. and 3 pm EST. We welcome your inspection and the opportunity to discuss your special concerns.
Campus Courses are offered during the day and evening. Due to COVID-19, AAMI has temporarily shifted the Campus delivery of courses to video-based technology via videotelephony and online chat services through a cloud-based peer-to-peer software platform used for teleconferencing, telecommuting, distance education, and social relations. It is anticipated when the Campus reopens for classes that this technology will also be an option for students who physically cannot attend the traditional classroom. At the time of this publication, the date for reopening the Campus has not been anticipated. All evening courses will continue to be delivered only via video-based technology.
The AAMI campus is located in the historic “Paramount” building just one block from Times Square. The entire premise is well-lighted, ventilated, and air-conditioned, providing a cheerful and comfortable atmosphere during all seasons of the year. Physical facilities are readily accessible for the disabled.
In addition to the usual classroom facilities for lecture and discussion, there are specially designed laboratories for Restorative Art and Computer Science which enhance the opportunities for students to learn; and an embalming “demonstration” laboratory that reflects a functional embalming facility.
A range of visual and learning aids are utilized to enhance and facilitate the educational experience in the classroom. These include films, slides, charts, manikins, video equipment and Power Point presentations.
The library contains about 1,400 carefully selected books, and a growing collection of periodicals and videos. Current Funeral Service journals and bound volumes of past issues are available for reading and reference.
Online and video-based students have access to all AAMI facilities.
Students interested in transferring to another institution must contact that institution for an assessment of how many credits will transfer.
