NYIT-Vancouver PNP Frequently Asked Questions

Following the March 19th PNP update announcement from the Government of BC, NYIT released some of their frequently asked questions relating to student concerns. 

Will New York Tech Decrease Academic Standards as a Means to Accelerate Degree Completion? 

No, NYIT has decided that they will not make any changes to their academic standards. Students who cannot sustain at least a 3.0 GPA (cumulative) are not able to increase their course load above their maximum credit per semester allowance. 

Can any Students Choose to Take an Extra Course During Their Semester?

NYIT has released specific guidelines about which students are able to add an extra course to their workload. Only students who can prove that they are in good academic standing and can demonstrate that they are likely to continue to excel in their studies under an increased academic load can add an additional course to their semester. Students who meet this criteria must submit their request early, as course space is limited, and New York Tech cannot guarantee that these requests can be accommodated. Students must receive approval from the NYIT-Vancouver Associate Dean for this request to be granted. Students in their first semester cannot take an extra course. 

The institute also advises against students accelerating their studies, especially students who are in the early phase of their program, as they believe that course overload can have an immense strain on student’s mental and physical health.

What Does Good Academic Standing Mean? 

Students who wish to add an extra course into their summer or fall semester must maintain a 3.0 CGPA or greater. Students who do not maintain good academic standing will be unable to continue accelerating their program. 

There are specific requirements for students in the Energy Management and Cybersecurity program who wish to increase their courses. Click here to read these requirements. 

General Requirements: 

  • Students must prove that they have good academic and financial standing. 
  • Students with 9 credits remaining in their program have the ability to register in 3 courses during the summer semester. 
  • Students with 21 credits remaining in their program are eligible to take 9 credits in the Summer 2024 semester, and 12 credits in Fall 2024. 
  • Students must meet all other prerequisites. 

Can I Enroll in the Optional Summer Semester (July 16-Aug 27)? 

Yes. New York Tech is offering an optional 2024 summer pilot semester where they will teach INCS 745. Students who wish to enroll in this semester must ensure they are eligible. 

If I Graduate in Fall 2024, Will I Receive my Transcript Before the End of December?

This answer varies. 

Depending on the transcript option that you choose at the time of order, and the length of time it takes to process an order during peak time, it will vary. Graduating students are automatically enrolled in a Graduation Preparation course on CANVAS after the graduation application deadline has passed. This course focuses on providing students with all of the information they need, and a timeline of when they will receive transcripts, diplomas, and completion letters.
