International Student Orientation Information

Welcome!

Congratulations and welcome to the New York Institute of Technology. We are delighted to have you join us.

As an international student, your orientation program has two mandatory sections: SEVIS Check-in and Orientation.

Mandatory SEVIS Check-In

It is very important that, upon entry into the United States, you check-in to NYIT IN PERSON at one of our SEVIS sessions to:

  • Update your visa information.
  • Obtain immunization clearance. (See our Immunization Policy.)
  • Schedule placement exams. (For students with an I-20 for language training or an I-20 with English language proficiency requirements listed under Program of Study and/or Remarks section on I-20.)
  • Register for classes.
