EM003, Enrollment Management and Student Success

Policy Statement
The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) encourages the development of independence, maturity, and ethical sensitivity of students. To achieve its purpose, the Fashion Institute of Technology expects students to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with their respective positions within the academic community and comply with the directions of faculty and staff members who are acting in the performance of their duties. In particular, students are expected to refrain from conduct that threatens or endangers the health, safety and welfare of their community. All who become members of the FIT community have an obligation to support and obey college regulations, and all local, state, and federal laws. Those who cannot or do not comply will be subject to disciplinary action both from the college as well as local, state, and federal authorities, as subsequently set forth, and the privilege of continued attendance at FIT may be withdrawn.

Entities Affected by this Policy

  • He/she enrolls in such courses or programs on a physical campus or site or via distance learning, the internet, or any other means of course-delivery technology;
