Preparing to Study Abroad

It's never too early to tell your academic advisor or email Global Academic Programs (globalengagement@nyit.edu) that you are thinking of studying 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 New York Tech 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.
