Eligibility

If you are a high school student
You may not apply directly to the bachelor’s degree program. High school students should apply to FIT’s two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) program in Accessories Design and after completing that degree apply to the two-year bachelor’s program.

Applicants to this program are expected to provide a competitive portfolio.

If you have an AAS from FIT
You may apply to the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program.

Graduates of any FIT Art and Design AAS program are eligible to apply to the Accessories Design BFA program. However, graduates of any Art and Design AAS program other than Accessories Design must complete LD 133 (Footwear Design/Construction 1) and LD 143 (Handbag Design/Construction1) before beginning the BFA program, and LD 134 (Footwear Design/Construction 2) and LD 144 (Handbag Design/Construction 2) before the start of the seventh semester of the Accessories Design BFA program

If you have credits or a degree from another college
You may apply to the two-year Accessories Design BFA program as a transfer student if you meet one of the following criteria by the time you enroll at FIT:

  • you will have an associate’s or bachelor's degree from an accredited college in a program that is equivalent to the FIT Accessories Design AAS program.
  • you will have earned at least 60 credits toward a bachelor's degree in an equivalent program at an accredited college.

A college program is equivalent if it contains the same major area and liberal arts distribution as the FIT Accessories Design AAS program. Applicants from college programs that are not equivalent must apply to the Accessories Design AAS program. Most transfer students are eligible for the one-year AAS program.

You must also complete LD 133 (Footwear Design/Construction 1) and LD 143 (Handbag Design/Construction 1) before beginning the BFA program, and LD 134 (Footwear Design/Construction 2) and LD 144 (Handbag Design/Construction 2) before the start of the seventh semester of the BFA program.

Applicants to this program are expected to provide a competitive portfolio. Please note that FIT AAS students receive priority admissions consideration.
