A Message from the Provost
With the health and safety of everyone at New York Institute of Technology as our first-priority, we are proactively moving to suspend all in-person classes for our New York City and Long Island campuses, effective Tuesday, March 10, 2020. Going forward, all classes on these two campuses will be taught online, via videoconferencing, or with some combination of digital techniques until further notice. Additional details include:
  • If you are in an online class, that class will continue with no changes except: if there are on-campus meetings that are a part of the online course, they will not be held. Your instructor will inform you about changes in the schedule or syllabus.
  • If you are in a blended/hybrid or face-to-face class or a class in a DL classroom (any class where you are physically in the same room with other students), those classes will be suspended, effective Tuesday, March 10, 2020.
  • We will provide instructors will details about remote teaching in short notice.
  • Beginning with the start of the day on Monday, March 23, 2020, we expect suspended in-person classes will resume as online classes or videoconference classes. Instructors will be in contact with students between March 10 and 22 with details about how the class will be held. We ask everyone to please monitor your NYIT email during this time for important information.
  • We will provide more details about any missed classes and makeup times.
  • All student activities will be suspended on Tuesday, March 10 and remain suspended until further notice.
  • Updates on the athletic program will be forthcoming.
These measures are in force until further notice. It is our goal to restore normal campus operations as soon as possible; however, the health and safety of our community is paramount. We will be working with local health authorities to determine when we can return to face-to-face teaching. We will also keep the lines of communication open to let you know about commencement and other upcoming campus activities.

New York Tech is doing its part in helping to prevent the spread of Covid-19. We recognize the declaration of a state of emergency by Governor Cuomo and the interim guidance for higher education from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. We are asking everyone at New York Tech to do your part in helping to keep our community safe.

New York Tech realizes that this disruption in the semester is stressful on everyone. We thank you, in advance, for demonstrating that resiliency and can-do-it attitude of the makers, doers, and innovators at New York Institute of Technology.
