Preparing to Study Abroad
- Knowing you want to study abroad will probably affect the sequence of courses you take your home campus.
- Program deadlines vary greatly, so start researching your program options early to get an idea of deadlines and requirements.
- After working with your academic advisor, contact the Registrar to confirm that the credits you earn abroad will count towards your NYIT degree.
- If you are an international student, contact the Office of International Education about updating your F-1 visa.
With proper advice and planning, you can study abroad—even multiple times—without delaying your time to graduation.
