Admitted Transfer Students

Congratulations on your acceptance! We look forward to seeing you on campus. Before you begin your studies here, here is a quick to-do list:

  • Please set up your MyNYIT Portal to create your NYIT email account and access NYITConnect to complete your next steps: confirm your enrollment, view, accept, or decline your NYIT scholarship and/or financial aid, if applicable, pay your tuition deposit, and more.

  • In NYITConnect, submit your $400 nonrefundable tuition deposit by May 1, 2016, or within two weeks of your acceptance if after the deposit deadline.

  • NYIT offers more than $40 million in scholarships and institutional aid each year. To be eligible for merit-based, state, or federal assistance, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). NYIT's FAFSA school code is 002782. NYIT's state TAP code is 2120. NYIT's priority deadline in March 1. Complete your FAFSA online.

  • Join us at the Manhattan or Old Westbury campus for a tour of campus with a student ambassador to get a better feel for where you'll be spending your time next semester. Schedule a tour today!

  • If you do not have transfer credits for English and/or math, then you are required to take placement exams. You are exempt from the English placement exam if you received transfer credit for FCWR 101, College Composition I. You are exempt from the math placement exam if you have credit for the first math course in your sequence or if your major requires only one three-credit math choice.

    Placement exams will be held from April through September. We will notify you when it's time to register for placement exams. Learn more and view practice questions.

    If you are exempt from English and math placement exams, you will need to request an advising and registration appointment with an academic advisor. During your scheduled appointment, you will select and register for your first semester courses, discuss your academic degree requirements, and learn about some of NYIT's academic resources.

    Registration will open in April for the fall 2016 semester.

  • New York State requires all students to show proof of immunizations before attending classes. NYIT requires all students to submit their immunizations documents prior to registering for classes. Please complete the Student Immunization Form and fax or mail it to NYIT's Office of Wellness Services or bring it with you on your placement exam or advising appointment date. For more information, please email or call 516.686.3705.
  • You are required to attend orientation as a new transfer student. This will be your opportunity to learn about student services and campus life, get to know your future classmates, and get ready for college life.

    Orientation will be held in June through August. We will notify you when it's time to register.

  • Decide if you would like to live in one of NYIT's full-service residence halls, located a short bus or subway ride away from campus. To live in an NYIT residence hall, please complete a Residential Hall Application, submit a nonrefundable $315 housing deposit, and select your meal plan.
