Orientation 2016


Welcome to the New York Institute of Technology. We are delighted that you have decided to become a part of NYIT.

Student Orientation is a mandatory program for all new first-year and transfer students to help smooth your transition to college life and NYIT. We'll introduce you to the larger NYIT community and show you how to navigate the campus offices, services, and resources that will help you to succeed in your college career.

NOTE: If you are an international student, you are required to attend a mandatory International Student Orientation in late August.
