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 New York City or Long Island campus through our Global Exchange program. Explore new cultures and career paths while you make friends with classmates from around the world.
