Step 1: Run your DARS (Degree Audit) online immediately
This system allows you to audit your degree progress online. The information on DARS provides up-to-date details such as transfer credits, waivers, substitutions and grade changes. Only this document should be used in determining the classes you need for degree completion.
Do not rely solely upon the FIT college website or the departmental checklist to make registration choices. Only the DARS is personalized for you and reflects your individual situation.
Set up an appointment with your advisor and remember to bring your most recent DARS print-out to all advisement meetings.
Step 2: View the master list of upcoming semester course offerings.
Select the Semester/year. The column labeled “RESTRICTIONS” indicates who is able to enroll in that specific section. If your major code is 7820, only you may enroll in courses with a 7820 restriction. Any student can enroll in a section with no restrictions, provided they have met the pre- or co-requisite criteria. (These courses are typically offered through Liberal Arts or may be your Related Area courses.)
Below is your Major Code:
7510 Fashion Design AAS
7620 Communication Design AAS
7820 Fashion Merchandising Management 2 year AAS
7821 Fashion Merchandising Management 1 year AAS
7830 Advertising and Marketing Communication 2 year AAS
7831 Advertising and Marketing Communication 1 year AAS
9500 Graphic Design BFA
9540 Illustration BFA
9810 Fashion Merchandising Management BS
9830 Advertising and Marketing Communications BS
9840 International Trade and Marketing BS
Step 3: Plan.
Prior to notification of your “Time Ticket Invitation” you should meet with your departmental advisor for course recommendations, resolve any holds on your account that may prevent you from gaining registration access, such as unpaid bills, library holds, etc.. and prepare your finances so payments can be made in a timely fashion and de-registration won’t be an issue.
Step 4: Keep an eye out for your time ticket invitation!
During the middle of your current semester, you will receive your “TIME TICKET INVITATION” to register through your FIT email account. This tells you when registration begins for YOU. Plan to register on or shortly following this date so you get all of the classes you need. Please be advised that Registration for evening and weekend classes open to the public, which means all non-restricted evening and weekend sections are available to anyone, so you may get “closed-out” of sections if you don’t act quickly.
Step 5: Double Check your DARS.
When you have completed your registration, print a newly updated copy of your DARS! Make sure all of the courses you’ve enrolled in apply to your degree requirements, as per the report. Resolve any course conflicts before courses begin.
