  • Register for your NYIT Placement Exams: Placement exams are required for all first-year students, except students admitted to the HEOP or B.S./D.O. programs. Check for exam dates. We encourage you to sign up early for placement exams. This will give you the opportunity to create your ideal class schedule and sit for the exams while your knowledge of the subject material is still fresh. After completing your placement exam, you will meet with an advisor to register for classes and make plans for the upcoming semester.
  • B.S./D.O. Enrollment Day: Students admitted to the B.S. in Life Sciences/Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (B.S./D.O.) program are not required to take placement exams. You are required to attend a B.S./D.O. Enrollment Day to meet with faculty members and new students to register for your fall semester courses. Sessions will be in June and August 2015.
  • Register for Orientation: All new first-year students are required to attend orientation. You will learn about campus life at our new student orientation sessions. Check in November for information on Spring 2015 and Fall 2015 Orientation.

Before Classes Begin: Spring 2015 Semester on Jan. 20, 2015; Fall 2015 Semester on Sept. 8, 2015

  • Submit Your High School Diploma: Since your admission to NYIT is contingent upon successful completion of course work in progress, you must ensure final official transcripts are filed with the Office of Admissions. Evidence of a high school diploma and graduation date is required. Please complete the High School Transcript Request Form and give it to your guidance counselor to send the necessary documents.

  • Immunizations: NY State requires all students to show proof of immunizations before attending classes.
