Applicants for admission into the MBA program who have completed only a three-year (or more) degree-bearing post-secondary program which IS equivalent to a US bachelor’s degree may apply directly for admission into the MBA program.
However, NYIT has a Bridge Program, designed to assist international graduate students who have NOT attained the equivalent of a four-year baccalaureate degree in the United States. The program requires that students complete additional credits. Applications from international students who have completed a three-year post-secondary program, (equivalent to three years of undergraduate study in the United States) or a four-year program that is NOT equivalent to an American bachelor’s degree will be considered with the following additional provisions:
All prospective students must first apply directly to NYIT using the general application, specifying the graduate program of choice. The Office of Graduate Admissions will determine eligibility for the Bridge Program. In addition to the application and supporting academic documents, all international students whose first language is not English must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam and submit official scores to the Office of Admissions. If you received your baccalaureate degree in the United States and can provide proof of your U.S. degree, or if you have already successfully completed English Composition at another institution, then the TOEFL or the IELTS are not required. If, however, you received your undergraduate degree from a foreign university, or if you have not completed English Composition, you are required to take the TOEFL or IELTS exam.
TOEFL: A written-based score of 550, a computer-based score of 213, or an Internet-based score of 79/80 is required for full admission. If you score 500-549 on the written, 173-212 on the computerized, or 61-79/80 on the Internet-based, you may be required to study English as a Second Language before you can be fully matriculated into your academic program of choice. If you score below 500, 173 or 61, you may apply only to our English Language Institute (ELI) for additional instruction in English.
IELTS: A test score on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) of 6 is required for full admission. If you score below a 6 but above a 5, you may be required to study English as a second language before you can be fully matriculated into your academic program of choice. If you score below a 5, you may apply to NYIT's English Language Institute for additional instruction in English. You may also retake the IELTS.
