College Coursework Completed While in High School

At NYIT, college coursework completed during high school is eligible for consideration of transfer credit so that you can get even further ahead than you are. If you took college courses on a college campus or in your high school under a sponsoring college, check out our standard transfer credit criteria and see if those classes fall under our guidelines.

If so, go ahead and put in a request for the official transcript of the course(s) to be sent to the NYIT Office of Admissions from the associated college. Make sure that the transcript reflects the course, credit, and grade earned so that the class can be accurately considered for transfer credit.

All official exam reports and official transcripts should be sent to:

NYIT Office of Admissions
Northern Blvd
P.O. Box 8000
Old Westbury, NY 11568
