Professor talking to diverse group of students.


Incoming students: Get a "jump start" on earning college credits towards your degree. Take one or two courses this summer, plus a free college success course, at a reduced rate in a supportive learning environment.

Benefits of JumpStart

  • Start earning credits towards your degree before the Fall semester begins.
  • Meet and make new friends with other incoming NYIT students.
  • Become familiar with your NYIT home campus and its resources before the semester starts.
  • Get considerable savings! The JumpStart program cost is less than 50% of actual tuition costs.
    • You might also be eligible for financial aid (FAFSA required).
    • If you have been awarded additional credits from Advanced Placement (AP) exams or earned college credits, you might be able to complete your degree a semester early (saving you tuition!).


  • You must be an admitted first-year student at NYIT (first time or transfer).
  • NOTE: Combined degree majors (B.S./D.O., B.S./D.P.T, B.S./M.S. majors) and HEOP students are not eligible for JumpStart.)
  • Once you take your math placement exam (if needed), you will meet with an Advising and Enrichment Center advisor who will help you determine the best option for you based on your major.
