Admissions

Undergradruate Admissions

First-year students wishing to apply to the New York Institute of Technology at Old Westbury will need to begin the process by submitting the online application along with the accompanying application fee. Additional documents required by all students regardless of the program that they are applying to include a 300-word personal essay, official high school transcripts, SAT/ACT scores and two letters of recommendation. There are also program-specific requirements for some majors in addition to these core documents.

The School of Architecture and Design has minimum ACT/SAT score requirements. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements may still be allowed to enroll as an undeclared student for the first semester or until they exhibit sufficient proof of academic capability. The School of Engineering and Computing Science has a similar requirement and also requires high school math courses sufficient to allow entry into Calculus I.

The School of Health Professions has additional admissions requirements, too. Students applying to the nursing program must meet minimum SAT/ACT requirements and interview with the nursing faculty. Students that want to enter into one of the accelerated undergraduate/graduate programs should work closely with the school because each program has special requirements for admission.

Graduate Admissions

The graduate programs at the New York Institute of Technology at Old Westbury also have a core set of admissions requirements and many programs have additional requirements as well. All students are required to submit an application and application fee. Since some programs require different applications, students should make sure that they are submitting the correct one. Other documents that are required by all graduate applicants include official transcripts from all colleges attended as well as proof of a bachelor’s degree or a copy of a college diploma.

Some programs also require appropriate standardized test scores such as the GMAT, interviews with faculty, personal recommendations or resumes, or other documentation. Because the admissions requirements vary from one program to another, students should be sure that they know exactly what their programs require in order to be considered for admission.

Financial Aid

The New York Institute of Technology at Old Westbury wants every student with a desire to learn to be able to attend. Because many students can’t afford to pay for college out-of-pocket, there are numerous programs available so that finances do not prevent a student from gaining a higher education. NYIT offers several different forms of financial aid to both undergraduates and graduates. Programs available to both groups include private and public, merit-based and need-based scholarships, grants, federally-subsidized loans and work-study programs. Graduate students also have the opportunity to apply for assistantships.

Students who wish to apply for financial aid will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which is available online as early as January. Many scholarship and assistantship programs support only a limited number of students per year, so it is recommended that students apply for aid as early as possible.
