Dear Ellis College of NYIT Student:
At long last the degree plans showing which courses you will need to take at Empire State College to complete the requirements of your NYIT degree are complete.
Below you’ll find the seven steps you’ll need to take to build your schedule, arrange for payment, and register for classes.
(Note: You will be earning an NYIT degree, not an Empire State College degree. Enrolling as a "non-degree" student at ESC does not change this.)
Go to http://suny-empire.esc.edu/degrees-programs/nondegree-study/ and click on the link for "Application for Non-degree Study."
To access the application, you must create an account. Click on "Create/Activate My Account" and fill in the required information about yourself.
Once you have an account you can complete the application by answering a series of questions. Under "Academic Information" (see screen shot below):
The advisor will have access to a copy of your NYIT-Ellis College degree plan showing which Empire State Courses you will need to take to satisfy NYIT graduation requirements. You should have your own copy of your plan with you when you speak to the advisor.
(For other assistance call 800.847.3000, ext. 2300 Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.)
