1. What is the student activity fee and what does it cover?

All students who are registered for twelve or more credits pay a student activity fee of $60.00 per semester.

2. What is FIT Student Association?

FIT Student Association is the student government on campus. The Student Council meets monthly and is made up of annually-elected student committee members, Executive and Programming Board members, and one representative from every recognized club and organization on campus. Student Council is open to all students who pay the student activity fee and voting privileges are granted after you attend two consecutive meetings.

In addition to running for elected office or representing a club or committee at the Student Council meetings, all students are eligible to become members of all college committees that deal with curriculum, admission policies, library, diversity, student affairs, etc. Each Fall, elections are held for these committees at a Student Council meeting. In addition, Student Council meetings are held once a month during a Tuesday common hour and are open to all students. After attending two consecutive meetings, a student receives voting privileges.
