Eligibility: All Students

  • Eligibility for New York Institute of Technology institutional scholarships, grants, and assistantships is limited to students whose campus home location is Long Island, New York City, or online, unless otherwise stated.
  • The university reserves the right to revise its financial aid programs. All programs are subject to change due to modifications in government or institutional policies. Additional criteria and information may be obtained from the Office of Financial Aid. Students are responsible for reading Financial Aid Disclosures before deciding to accept or decline their financial aid.
  • Institutional scholarships and grants are awarded and applicable to fall and spring semesters only. Occasionally, certain graduate awards within a unique graduate program may be available during a summer term.
  • All registered credits, for determination of eligibility, must be applicable to the student's degree program of study.
  • Students have the responsibility to request, complete, and submit all forms with necessary documentation for all financial aid programs, including scholarships, in a timely manner.
  • Awards are not granted retroactively.
  • Any designated "tuition-only" award cannot exceed the cost of tuition and will be reduced accordingly.
  • For maximum consideration for all types of scholarships and awards, students must file the FAFSA by the March 15 priority date. (Note: The February 14 priority FAFSA filing date was extended for the 2024–2025 award year due to federal processing delays.) International students are not required to complete the FAFSA. Additional information on program-specific awards and availability can be found by visiting the Office of Financial Aid online.
  • Students must maintain continuous enrollment and the minimum cumulative GPA required.
