Several programs have special requirements, as indicated below. Please note that while some of these requirements are strict, others can be more lenient. You may want to contact the department chairperson of your intended major if you have a question or concern.
Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.): Students are not admitted directly into the five-year B.Arch. program, but are reviewed first for admissions to the B.S. in Architectural Technology (B.S.A.T.). After completing at least 30 NYIT credits and achieving at least a 2.75 cumulative average in all coursework or a 3.0 cumulative average in architecture courses, transfer B.S.A.T. students may apply for admission to the B.Arch. program. Admission to the B.Arch. program requires the submission of a representative portfolio of design work and its review and acceptance by a committee of faculty members. School of Architecture and Design Transfer Credit Policies (PDF).
Engineering and Computing Sciences: Transfer students may apply for transfer to NYIT into an engineering program if they have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.3, and have completed 12 credits of required mathematics, physics, computer science, and engineering. Students may also satisfy these requirements by passing challenge examinations in these areas as provided for by NYIT policies.
Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.): Students must submit a portfolio to NYIT once their application has been received. For portfolio requirements and submission details, visit nyit.edu/fine_arts/bfa_portfolio_review.
Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.): Please be advised that admission into the pre-professional clinical phase is competitive. The number of students accepted into this phase depends on available resources, class cap limits, and the student's academic record.
College transfer students with 24 or more transferable credits must have:
B.S./M.S. in Occupational Therapy: You will need to submit proof of 100 hours of volunteer work with an occupational therapist and an essay explaining your desire to work in this field. An interview with occupational therapy faculty is required. One of your two letters of recommendation must be from a licensed occupational therapist.
