Study in New York
New York is a global hub for culture, design, art, finance, architecture, and more. If you’re matriculated as an NYIT student at one of our global campuses or a visiting international exchange student, you can come to New York and take classes for a semester or more at our Manhattan (New York City) or Old Westbury (Long Island) campus through our Global Exchange program. Explore new cultures and career paths while you make friends with classmates from around the world.
To be eligible for the Global Exchange program, you must:
- be in good academic standing and already matriculated in an NYIT degree program at one of our international campuses, or matriculated at a foreign university.
- get permission from your campus dean or academic advisor (for NYIT students), or provide official transcripts from your home university.
- choose the NYIT campus (Manhattan or Old Westbury) where you wish to study, if applicable (some programs are only offered on one New York campus).
- provide necessary documentation, including a completed visa application, Change of Campus Form, and Center for Global Exchange Application (current NYIT Students) or Visiting Non-Degree Student Application Form.
- submit a non-refundable Global Exchange Assessment Fee, payable by wire transfer or credit card, with your application.
