FIT’s Precollege Essay Recommendations

Applicants for FIT’s Business and Technology majors and Film and Media major do not require portfolios for admission, but do need to submit an essay that sets them apart from other candidates. Experiences in Precollege courses enable students to write intelligibly about aspects of their industry/major of choice. Students are also encouraged to try a variety of courses representing these majors (see below) to broaden their understanding of how these industries impact and support each other.
