The Center for Continuing & Professional Studies offers you the opportunity to take credit, non-degree courses at FIT with no formal application to the college required. The only requirements are 1) a high school diploma or its equivalent, and 2) the legal ability to take credit courses in the United States (ie, not on a tourist visa).
Complete the Non-Degree Enrollment Form if you have never taken classes at FIT, or require re-admission as a non-degree student. The Non-Degree Enrollment form fee is $50.00. You will need to create a temporary log-in ID to access the enrollment form. Upon completion, we will process your information and send your new/updated FIT ID number within 2 business days.
You may return to an incomplete enrollment form using your previously created temporary log-in ID.
