Please note:

  • When using live tutoring, make sure you are prepared with a question before you connect with a tutor. Extra hours will not be approved if past sessions are found to be unproductive, or too dependent on tutor guidance.

In the event that you reach your limit of hours, contact the Learning Center on your campus at LearningCenterOW@nyit.edu (Old Westbury) or LearningCenterMA@nyit.edu (Manhattan) with your name, NYIT ID number, and a reason for your request. Your past usage will be reviewed, and a decision will be made whether or not additional time is warranted.
