Studying in the U.S.

Students From NYIT Global Campuses Wishing to Study in the United States

If you are admitted to an undergraduate or graduate program at one of NYIT's locations, and are in good academic standing, you are entitled to study at any of NYIT's campuses. However, if you wish to spend time in the U.S., an application and additional documentation - if you will require a visa - will be necessary.

For more information and to request application forms, please contact the Center for Global Academic Exchange: email globalexchange@nyit.edu or call 212.261.1517.

Eligibility: In order to be eligible to study at another NYIT campus, students must be in good academic standing and must be fully admitted into a degree program at the time of application.

Cost: Students will pay their home campus tuition for the first semester at a NY campus and will then pay the NY tuition rate for any subsequent semesters.
 

Campus Exchange Application Deadlines

Summer Semester: If you wish to attend NYIT's U.S. Campus during the summer semester, you should submit your application to the Center for Global Exchange by February 15.

Fall Semester: If you wish to attend NYIT's U.S. Campus during the fall semester, you should submit your application to the Center for Global Exchange by April 15.

Spring Semester: If you wish to attend NYIT's U.S. Campus during the spring semester, you should submit your application to the Center for Global Exchange by October 15.

NYIT Global students, who are not U.S. citizens, and who wish to study at one of NYIT's campuses in the United States can apply for the following types of campus exchange:
 

Types of Campus Exchange

  • J-1 Visa Student: for students who wish to attend a NY campus for a period of up to one semester, including the last semester before graduating.
  • F-1 Visa Student: for students who wish to attend a NY campus for a period of more than one semester and/or to finish their degree.

Please note that students cannot choose which visa they will receive as there are strict federal immigration regulations that guide this process.

Students who will receive a J-1 visa should be aware that they may be subject to a Home Residency Requirement - students who have received U.S. or home country funding or those on the "Country Skills List", upon completion of the J-1 program must return to their country of last legal permanent residence for 2 years before they are eligible to apply for entry to the U.S. on an H1b visa. Please note that NYIT has no authority regarding this decision.
