Vocational Independence Program (VIP)

On June 2, 2020, New York Institute of Technology announced that as part of a strategic reassessment of academic and programmatic offerings, the Vocational Independence Program and its associated summer program, the Introduction to Independence Program, would be discontinued.

The Vocational Independence Program has been a source of pride for New York Tech and was a valued asset for the institution and the community for more than 30 years. It will always be a part of our legacy.

We sincerely thank all the faculty and staff in the program for their dedication and many contributions to the students and their families. We also express deep gratitude to the students who participated in the program and wish them an abundance of success in future endeavors.
