Standardized test scores:
All applicants to NYIT must take the SAT I or the ACT. In addition, you may choose to take the SAT II, which is not required but may strengthen your application. Certain programs have minimum score requirements, so please be sure to check. However, if your scores are close but not exactly up to those requirements, apply anyway; the rest of your application may be strong enough to override the test scores. See
If you have specific questions about admissions requirements, please contact us.
Entering freshmen who wish to apply for admission to the combined B.F.A./M.A. program must have a minimum combined SAT score of 1100 and/or a 90 (3.5) average in high school. Students in the regular undergraduate degree program who demonstrate academic success as evidenced by their academic performance (3.0 GPA or better) may request consideration for transfer into the five-year program at the beginning of their second academic year, or completion of 30 credits. Communication Arts majors from other institutions may transfer into this program provided that they have a 3.0 GPA and transfer in no more than 30 credits. Two letters of recommendation and an essay are also required of all applicants to the five-year program. The applicants will also be interviewed by members of the graduate committee of the Communication Arts department in order to ascertain their ability and their understanding of the challenges of the program they are about to undertake. Students who apply for admission but are not accepted into the combined B.F.A./M.A. program will automatically be considered for admission into the four-year B.F.A. program in Communication Arts.
