Transfer credit appeal

Transfer credit is awarded only for course work similar to courses required for your current FIT degree and only when official transcripts and/or score reports have been submitted for review.

*Please note, after AAS students apply, are admitted and pay the tuition deposit for a Bachelor's degree program through the Admissions Office, the Registrar's Office reviews each student's transcripts again for any additional transfer credits that can be applied toward the Bachelor's degree.

Restrictions on the amount of transfer credits
As a transfer student, you must be aware of the academic residency requirement that you take a certain number of credits at FIT. This may limit the amount of transfer credit that can be awarded:

  • AAS degree students must complete a minimum of 30 approved credits, including at least half of the credits required in the major area, while in degree status at FIT
  • BFA/BS degree students must complete a minimum of 60 credits, including at least half of the credits required in the major area, while in degree status at FIT
