If you haven't already, please set up your username and password in the my.NYIT Portal. You can set up your username and password by clicking on "create account/reset password." This will enable you to create your NYIT email account, which will be used for all official NYIT notifications, and access NYITConnect to complete your next steps: confirm your enrollment, view, accept, or decline your NYIT scholarship and/or financial aid, if applicable, and more.

Step 2: Submit your FAFSA

More

To be eligible for merit-based, state, or federal assistance, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The 2018-2019 FAFSA opens 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.

NYIT's FAFSA school code is 002782. NYIT's state TAP code is 2120. Complete your FAFSA online starting October 1.

Step 3: Visit NYIT

More

Join us for a visit at our Manhattan or Old Westbury campus. Schedule a tour or check out our admitted student events.

Step 4: Meet With an Advisor to Make Your Class Schedule

More

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.

Find your advisor.

Please note: You must have a completed Student Immunization Form before registering for classes. See Step 5 for more information.

Step 5: Get Your Immunizations

More

New York State requires all students to show proof of immunizations before attending classes. NYIT requires all students to submit their immunization documents prior to registering for classes. Please complete the Student Immunization Form and fax or mail it to NYIT's Office of Wellness Services or bring it with you on your placement exam date. If you are under 18, you MUST have a parent sign the form or you will be unable to register for classes on the day you come in for your placement exam. For more information, please email the Office of Wellness Services at: ows@nyit.edu or call 516.686.3705.

Step 6: Make Your Housing Arrangements

More

Decide if you would like to live in one of NYIT's full-service residence halls, located a short bus or subway ride away from campus. To live in an NYIT residence hall, please complete a Residential Hall Application, submit a nonrefundable $345 housing deposit, and select your meal plan.

Step 7: Send Your Final, Official Documents

More

You need to send final, official school transcripts, test scores, and proof of degree to the Office of Admissions prior to the start of the semester. Your admission and scholarship, if applicable, are pending the receipt of these documents. Evidence of a bachelor's degree and graduation date is required.

NYIT prefers to receive transcripts electronically. Submit your official transcripts through one of several electronic transcripts networks that NYIT participates: National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment Exchange, and eSCRIP-SAFE. If your prior institution does not participate with one of our networks, they may send an electronic transcript directly to NYIT at admissions@nyit.edu.
