Steps for Advisement and Registration
Students who were in attendance during Spring 2013 semester, please follow these instructions (other students please follow instructions for New Students or Former Students):
Know your Restrictions: You will be prevented from registering if you have restrictions or have not submitted all of your admissions and financial aid documents to the college. You can check your status by going to View My Restrictions and My Documents located on NYITConnect. Please resolve all outstanding holds before attempting to register.
Print your Program Evaluation: Log in to NYITConnect and access the Program Evaluation application.
Print a Registration Form (PDF).
Print your Semester Map: Semester Maps are an example of the semester-by-semester sequence of courses a student in the selected major might take in order to complete all the required credits.
Meet with a Peer Advisor to prepare for advisement. Peer Advisors hold regular office hours in the Old Westbury (PDF) and Manhattan (PDF) campuses. They are available to help you review your curriculum requirements, choose possible course options, and prepare important questions for your academic advisor, which will be recorded on an Advisement Preparation Form. Peer Advisors can also assist you with registration process, showing you how to select courses and register online.
Meet with your Academic Advisor to have your course selections approved. View the advisor schedules to find out their office hours. It is a good idea to bring a copy of your program evaluation and registration form when you meet with your advisor. Your advisor will approve your courses by signing the registration form and opening your online registration record. Your online registration record must be opened or you will not be able to register online. If you have any questions or concerns about advisement, visit the Advising and Enrichment Center.
Prepare your Schedule Online: Search for Sections is an up-to-the-minute resource that lists all available classes and the total remaining seats in each course section. The Class Scheduler is an online automated class scheduling tool on NYITConnect. It matches your course information and scheduling preferences to arrange potential class schedules. View a step-by-step tutorial for instructions how to use Class Scheduler. If you have any questions, be sure to see a Peer Advisor on your campus.
Register for Classes: Log in to NYITConnect Student Menu and select Register and Drop Sections. View a step-by-step tutorial that shows how to register online. If you have any questions, be sure to see a Peer Advisor on your campus. If you are unable to register online, bring your signed registration form to the Student Solutions Center.

It is important that students only register for courses required in their academic program and approved by an academic advisor. Students who plan to receive financial aid or loans must consider the federal and state regulations applied to courses. Read more about financial aid rules and registration (PDF).
Financial Aid: You are strongly encouraged to complete a financial aid application. Applications are available online at www.fafsa.gov. You can view your financial aid award letter and respond to your loan offerings online at NYITConnect. For more information regarding financial aid offerings contact the Financial Aid Office at 516.686.7680 or 212.261.1590 or visit Financial Aid online.
Payment Due Dates: Tuition for Summer 2013 and Intersession 2014 classes is due when you register. Tuition and fees for Fall 2013 must be paid in full by August 1, 2013.
Students registering for Summer and Fall are advised to register for classes in one registration transaction: your payment for Summer will be due at the point of registration. If Summer is not paid, you will not be permitted to make changes to your Summer or Fall schedule and your classes may be canceled.
Payment Options: Payments can be made online via NYITConnect using the Make a Payment option. NYIT accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
You may now enroll in the Summer 2013 tuition payment plan. You may pay your Fall 2013 tuition at the point of registration or enroll in the 2013-2014 annual tuition payment plan. If you are interested in enrolling in a tuition payment plan, please contact our vendor Sallie Mae at 1.800.635.0120 or http://tuitionpay.salliemae.com.
Money Saving Tips: Enroll in the annual Fall/Spring plan and pay once for the same enrollment period. If you enroll in Fall and Spring separately, you pay enrollment fee per semester. Summer has a separate enrollment fee. Continuing students should take advantage of early registration to avoid being charged a late registration fee. The late registration fee is charged after the first day of a term.
For Fall 2013 registrations that occur on or after August 1, 2013, you will be required to pay 100% of your tuition and fees not covered by approved financial aid or the TuitionPay payment plan.
If your Fall tuition is not satisfied by August 1, 2013, you will be prevented from making changes to your schedule of classes until your tuition is paid. In addition, your classes may be canceled and you will be charged a late payment fee when you reregister for classes.
Housing: Housing is available for students for the 2013-2014 academic year. For more information and to complete a housing application, visit Housing & Residential Life.
Official Registration: Official registration in a course section is required in order to earn a grade for a class. Registration must be completed by the end of the change of program period (see Academic Calendar). Therefore, students who have not officially registered for a course section will not receive a grade retroactively. Students are not officially registered until all tuition and fees are satisfied. Attendance is not permitted in any class without official registration for that class.
