You should apply to the two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree program. High school students may not apply directly to the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree program. Upon completing the AAS program with a GPA of at least 2.0, you may continue in the two-year BS program in Advertising and Marketing Communications (AMC). Information about this process is provided to students in their second year at FIT. If you choose not to move on to baccalaureate study, you can leave the program after two years with an AAS degree.
If you have an AAS from FIT in another Business and Technology major or an AAS in Communication Design
You may apply to the AMC bachelorís degree program. You will be required to take certain prerequisite or equivalent courses before the sixth semester. See your advisor for information.
If you have credits or a degree from another college
You may apply to the AMC BS program as a transfer student if you meet one of the following criteria by the time you enroll at FIT:
- you will have an associateís or bachelorís degree from a regionally accredited college in a program that is equivalent to the FIT AMC AAS program. Certain prerequisite or equivalent courses in the major area must be completed.
- you will have earned at least 60 credits toward a bachelor's degree in an equivalent or related program at a regionally accredited college.
A college program is equivalent if it contains the same major area and liberal arts distribution as the FIT Advertising and Marketing Communications program. Applicants from college programs that are not equivalent must apply to the AAS program.
Please note that FIT AAS students receive priority admissions consideration.
