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

NYIT'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 NYIT.

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 NYIT Academy courses introduce you to interesting fields of study and to what it's like to be an NYIT student. Get hands-on experience in architecture, game design, robotics, digital design, 3-D printing, health care, 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 NYIT Advance program, you're already ahead of the game! NYIT Advance allows you to enroll in NYIT-approved high school courses as a high school student that, upon completion, awards you NYIT 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.

Continuing Education

NYIT's Extended Education 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.

Vocational Independence Program

The Vocational Independence Program (VIP) at NYIT is a comprehensive postsecondary transition program for young adults with special needs located on NYIT's Long Island campus. VIP students work on the skills needed for independent adulthood including executive functioning, independent living, social/communication skills and employment skills.
