Returning Students

Are you a Returning Student?

If you are returning after more than one semester away from NYIT (not including summer): Welcome Back! You are considered a returning student.

If you are a current student, you may proceed through the regular registration process.

Returning After One Semester Away

If you took one semester away from NYIT (not including summer) and did not continue your studies elsewhere:

  • You do not need to reapply and may return under the original catalog/curriculum of admission.
  • You must meet with an Academic Advisor for your program.
  • Contact the Enrollment Services Center for more information.

Returning After One Semester at Another Institution

If you attended another college or university during your one semester away from NYIT:

  • File an application for readmission at the Office of Admissions, along with all necessary documentation listed on the application.
  • Submit transcripts from the other institution at the time of readmission in order to receive any applicable transfer credits for work completed and to ensure proper academic advisement, scholarship, and financial aid eligibility.
  • Pay fees associated with readmission and transfer credits.

Students Returning After More Than One Semester Away

If you have been away from NYIT for more than one semester:

  • File an application for readmission at the Office of Admissions, along with all necessary documentation listed on the application.
  • Submit transcripts from the other institution at the time of readmission in order to receive any applicable transfer credits for work completed and to ensure proper academic advisement, scholarship, and financial aid eligibility.
  • Pay fees associated with readmission and transfer credits.
  • Once readmitted, you will be required to fulfill the curriculum requirements in effect at the time of your readmission.
    • If you are readmitted after a break of five years or less (undergraduates must be within 30 credits of completing your degree), you may request approval to follow the program requirements in place at the time of your most recent prior admission/readmission. The academic dean responsible for your program will make that decision.
    • If you are returning after more than five years (undergraduates must be within 30 credits of completing your degree), you may request approval to follow the program requirements in place at the time of your most recent prior admission/readmission. The Vice President for Academic Affairs or designee will make that decision. In all cases, NYSED regulations will guide these decisions.
