Current Students - How to Register

Steps for Advisement and Registration

Current Students Students who were in attendance during Spring 2015 or Fall 2015 semesters, please follow these instructions (other students please follow instructions for New Students or Former Students):

  1. Know your Holds: You will be prevented from registering if you have holds or have not submitted all of your admissions and financial aid documents to the college. You can check your holds by visiting NYITConnect. Please resolve all outstanding holds before attempting to register.
  2. Print your Academic Advisement Report: Log in to NYITConnect and access the Academic Advisement Report application.
  3. Print a Registration Form (PDF). 
  4. 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.
  5. Meet with a Peer Advisor (undergraduate students only) 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. 
  6. 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 academic advisement report 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.  
  7. Prepare your Schedule Online: Search for Classes is an up-to-the-minute resource that lists all available classes and the total remaining seats in each course section. The Schedule Planner is an online automated class scheduling tool on NYITConnect. It matches your course information and scheduling preferences to arrange potential class schedules. If you have any questions, be sure to see a Peer Advisor on your campus.
  8. Register for Classes: Log in to NYITConnect and select Enroll under the Academics section. 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.
