Step 2: Submit your FAFSAMore
To be eligible for merit-based, state, or federal assistance, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA opens annually on October 1. If you received a scholarship in your acceptance package, you do need to complete the FAFSA in order to receive this scholarship. By completing the FAFSA, you may be eligible for additional financial aid. Once we receive your FAFSA, we will send you a financial assistance package that will be inclusive of all awards you have received.
Our FAFSA school code is 002782. Our state TAP code is 2120. Complete your FAFSA online starting October 1.

Step 4: Meet With an Advisor to Make Your Class ScheduleMore
We will contact you when to schedule an appointment with your advisor to register for classes. Advisement and class registration begins in November for the spring semester and April for the fall semester.
Step 5: Get Your ImmunizationsMore
New York State requires all students to show proof of immunizations prior to the first day of classes and no later than the end of the first semester. Find out how to get your immunization documents and submit them online.
Step 6: Make Your Housing ArrangementsMore
Decide if you would like to live in one of New York Tech's full-service residence halls, located a short bus or subway ride away from campus. To live in a residence hall, please complete a Residential Hall Application, submit a nonrefundable housing deposit, and select your meal plan.
Step 7: Send Your Final, Official DocumentsMore
You need to submit final, official college transcripts, test scores (if applicable), proof of degree, and all other required admission materials to the Office of Admissions prior to the start of classes but no later than the end of your first semester. Failure to provide these final documents will result in registration holds and may result in cancelation of financial aid.
We prefer to receive transcripts electronically. Submit your official transcripts through one of several electronic transcripts networks that we participate in: National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment Exchange, Scoir, and eSCRIP-SAFE. If your prior institution does not participate with one of our networks, they may send an electronic transcript directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
