New York Institute of Technology Reviews

579 reviews
All Categories
The combined Manhattan and Long Island campuses of the college have about 1000 faculty members; among these, about 300 are full-time whereas about 700 (about seventy percent) are part-time faculty (adjuncts). Currently, we seem to be prioritizing our "profit centers" in terms of allocating resources (chemicals and/or equipment and/or well-qualified and articulate full-time faculty). The "profit centers" are the osteopathic medical school (D.O.) and of course, the combined seven year BS/DO program. Due to the current trend, BS/DO undergraduates will likely receive an acceptable education since we prioritize all programs connected to the D.O. when we allocate our resources. What about undergraduates whose major is not BS/DO? While they might still receive a quality education, they may find themselves receiving "leftovers" in terms of resources due to the "potluck" allocation of these when those not majoring in BS/DO are involved. If you are not enrolled in BS/DO, go somewhere else.

The classes and professors are pretty good. However, the office of the bursar and their financial aid department are simply horrendous, and I do not recommend this school simply for that reason, especially if your family has any special or unusual circumstances.
I was being billed for the Spring 2018 semester only to find out days before the semester was over that they thought I was enrolled for part time, and therefore, proceeded to tell,
"Hey, we billed you the wrong amount, so instead of playing $13,000 you have to pay $18,000."
The staff is simply negligent, especially the people running the desk in the Advisement and Enrichment center building, as I asked them multiple times if once my verification process is done that I would not have to pay anything more, and I was told YES.
The one saving grace in the entire financial aid department is William Wall. He seems to be the only decently competent member of that entire staff and is working diligently to help me in this situation.
I have attended New York Institute of Technology for the past 6 months. Ths campus is very presentable, cafes have delicious food choices, and the professors are great. You will get the opportunity to obtain a great education that will be helpful in ths future. Very diverse school as well, a whole variety of races go here. Many helpful resources are around the campus to help with trouble, available to anybody. Many sports complexes also so you can exercise or enjoy playing sports with friends. Weather is always nice besides the Winter where it may be cold, otherwise very comfortable temperatures daily.
