About the Program

The EduPlus program provides supplemental enrichment for motivated students by way of weekly academic tutoring, skill-building classes, and personalized advisement during their first two semesters at NYIT. It is available for students whose grades and test scores do not quite meet NYIT's general admission standards and who would benefit from additional academic and personal support. EduPlus, which is offered at the Old Westbury and Manhattan campuses, provides the guidance and structure needed for students to become independent and successful learners.

NYIT student posesEligibility

All interested first-year students undergo an assessment as part of NYIT's regular admission process. If you are selected as a candidate for EduPlus, staff members will request an additional essay discussing your academic history and future goals, and provide you with additional information regarding program offerings.

All EduPlus students are considered matriculated students and are eligible to apply for financial aid. To apply for financial aid, students in the EduPlus program must go online and fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

*Please note that there is an additional one-time fee for students accepted to the EduPlus program allowing for the unique academic services and personal advising that are provided. As an added benefit, if you complete the program successfully, the fee will be credited to your account in the first semester of your sophomore year!

Also, if accepted, you will be eligible for the Deric Marshall II Memorial Scholarship, which covers the full cost of the fee and is awarded in advance of your freshman year.

If you are accepted to NYIT's EduPlus program, you must:

  • Attend all classes, laboratory, and tutoring sessions
  • Attend all required EduPlus meetings and events
  • Earn and maintain a GPA of 2.0 or above during your first year
  • Attend at least two hours of tutoring per week in the Learning Center in the first semester, and one hour a week during the second semester
  • Attend required weekly skill-building classes
