Special Programs

We leverage our academic strengths to offer a range of special support and recognition programs for our students, as well as pre-college programs for high school students, continuing education courses, and vocational training.

Incoming Students

New York Tech's Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) assists students who, because of financial and academic hardships, might otherwise be unable to earn a college degree. This comprehensive program is jointly sponsored with the state of New York to provide all New Yorkers access to the state's private colleges and universities.

EduPlus targets motivated students who may not meet our general admissions standards. We provide those accepted with academic enrichment such as tutoring, skill-building classes, and personalized advisement during their first two semesters at New York Tech. Please note: the EduPlus program has been suspended for the 2021–2022 academic year.

Our English Language Institute (ELI) offers basic English classes for beginning learners, as well as classes for beginner, intermediate, and advanced learners of English for academic purposes.

Pre-College Programs

Our New York Tech Summer courses introduce you to interesting fields of study and to what it's like to be an New York Tech student. Get hands-on experience in architecture, game design, robotics, digital design, 3-D printing, healthcare, hospitality, and so much more. International students are welcome to participate in the program, as well as our New York English Language Experience program.

If your high school participates in our New York Tech Advance program, you're already ahead of the game! New York Tech Advance allows you to enroll in our approved high school courses as a high school student that, upon completion, awards you New York Institute of Technology college credit. These courses, in addition to counting toward high school graduation, provide you with a head start on your college education at a steeply discounted rate.

High school students are also eligible to take some summer courses at New York Tech. Go to nyit.edu/summer.

New York Tech's Professional Development courses include classes leading to professional certificates as well as corporate training, non-credit courses, and youth programs in a variety of sought-after areas.
