International Student: A Definition
You are considered an international student if you:
- Intend to study at NYIT's campuses in New York, and
- Need a student visa to study in the United States.
- An international student can be an undergraduate or a graduate student.
- If you wish to attend a campus outside of New York, then you are not an "international student." Please see the global admissions page.
It's important to you submit all of your documents to the Office of Admissions in sufficient time for us to process all the paperwork and send your I-20 form to you. Use the following dates as a guideline. (You can submit documents earlier, but remember that all bank statements must be current within six months of the date of submission.)
- Fall semester: July 1
- Spring semester: Dec.1 of the year prior to your starting date
International students must meet the same academic requirements for admissions to undergraduate, transfer, or graduate programs as students from the United States. They must also take the TOEFL and obtain an I-20 visa in order to study at NYIT. See more about academic requirements.
