Oakdale, known as the hamlet of Suffolk County was home to the private main campus of Dowling College. While the doors of Dowling have been closed and the last of its students given their goodbyes, some students have made their way to the New York Institute of Technology. Students are becoming articulated to NYIT as incoming transfer students. The Old Westbury campus has done their best to accommodate the needs of the misplaced.

Sharing our beloved school colors of blue and gold, with nearly half a century under its belt, the private college lost its accreditation and sent the last of its students on their way to other institutions such as NYIT. As Dowling sends its Lions to the Bears Den, some athletes will be attending NYIT within the beginning of the fall semester. Their admission stories, proving to be noteworthy, present themselves as whole hearted with fortitude. Counselors were proud to share the stories of these new NYIT students gathered by Associate Director of Admissions Marketing, Ms. Sara Jane Lowe.

“In early June, Chris Collins and another employee set up an enrollment day at NYIT-Old Westbury for all incoming athletes. They reviewed applications on the spot for over 20 students in a single day, providing them with an admission decision and scholarships—up to $16,000 for transfer students.”  Lowe goes further to explain, “ They spoke to students, parents, and coaches to put them at ease about what was happening and let them know that they could continue their education at NYIT without a hitch,” something that proves to be very taxing with most college transfers.

Another opportune story of a prospective student named Elif is from Turkey and was awarded the maximum nine credits for the NYIT graduate program. Elif has to deal with the short timeframe of getting an I-20 to attend the fall semester. An I-20 as explained by Ms. Sara Lowe “ is essentially a form that colleges issue to admitted students who aren’t US Citizens that allows them to get a visa and come to the US to study.” Another student with a similar situation to Elif’s will be attending NYIT in the fall as a graduate with the full nine credits. This student like Elif is from another country- Pakistan and is now a US Citizen.

With the NYIT Global Campus Initiative™ created by President Edward Guiliano, students like Elif make an exceptional part of the population on all campuses.  Proving once again that any student is welcome, President Guiliano says on the NYIT Facebook page, “We’re doing good things through education and research and collaboration at NYIT for society. We can be proud.” Sending the message that all transferring Dowling students will find a community and an education they can be proud of here at NYIT.

Lowe also states, “ Other initiatives that NYIT has taken include hosting Dowling Transfer Days on campus; visiting places like Panera, Starbucks, and Dunkin’ Donuts on the South Shore to meet with students closer to home; and visiting Dowling’s campus itself.” The heart and effort from the NYIT counselors give Dowling students peace of mind as Lowe goes on to explain. “Basically at all of these events, they’ll provide an on-the-spot admission decision, transfer credit evaluation, and scholarship review.” A landing page was made for the Dowling transfer students with the first in very welcoming words- “Dowling students, we’re here to help.”

The saying applies when one door closes another door opens, meaning that there is more than just a matter of transferring to NYIT, it’s community, prestige, cultural fusion – all of this and more is out there in our global campuses and we are asking Dowling students to join us.
