COLLEGE COURSEWORK COMPLETED WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL
To help you get a head start on earning your degree, we’ll consider college coursework you completed during high school for transfer credit. If you took college courses on a college campus or in your high school under a sponsoring college, check out our standard transfer credit criteria in the NYIT Catalog and see if your classes fall under our guidelines.
If they do, request that your associated college send the official transcript of your course(s) to the NYIT Office of Admissions. Make sure the transcript reflects the course, credit, and grade earned so that the class can be accurately considered for transfer credit.
