International Student Orientation Information


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 Check-in 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.


Mandatory Orientation

Orientation includes important workshops and presentations to smooth your transition to the United States and to help you to become a successful student at NYIT.

Orientation Information

SEVIS One-Stop Shop will be held during the summer before the fall semester begins. Admitted students will receive invitations to orientation in April. Please check back for dates and information about orientation.
