Major or related area transfer credits are evaluated and approved by the major department. Students should contact the major department upon their initial arrival on campus to arrange an appointment for a review of major courses for possible transfer credit. In addition, a department may request additional information on learning outcomes of the course as well as a sample of student work in a portfolio.
If you take courses at another institution during summer or winter terms and would like to transfer credit to FIT, you should submit the course equivalency assessment form and obtain Registrar approval before registering for a course at another college.
