Family Welcome Sessions

All parents and guardians,

I have the pleasure of welcoming you to the FIT family. While I hope everyone is enjoying his or her time off, we at FIT are diligently working on preparing the campus for your arrival. As you may already know, the semester starts for all new students with our orientation program. The start to a new journey also begins for the family of our students as well. 

Parents and students We are inviting all parents and guardians to attend the Dean's Family Welcome. At the welcome, families will have the opportunity to meet our panel of experts from the offices of Financial Aid, Registrar, Bursar, Health Services, and Residential Life. Moderated by myself, the session is designed to answer your questions as well as give you information on FITís relationship and expectations of you.

Families are invited to attend one of the following sessions found within your studentís orientation program.
