Information on your Degree Audit (DARS)
How can I get tutoring help for my ITM (IN) courses?
FIT's Academic Skills Center, room A608-B, offers individualized tutoring assistance for selected ITM courses provided that there are student tutors available for that subject.
How can I become a tutor of ITM courses?
ou need to have taken the course and have a letter of recommendation from the professor. Then, see Professor Deborah Levine, Academic Skills Center in room A608-B.
TAKING COURSE AT OTHER COLLEGES
Can I take courses at other colleges?
Due to their focus on actual industry practices, ITM courses (courses with the code IN) are unique to FIT and the ITM department, therefore ITM majors are expected to take all major courses at FIT.
Students considering taking liberal arts courses at other institutions to fulfill graduation requirements, must bring a copy of the course description and syllabus to the ITM Chair, at least four months before the target semester, who will then consult with the Liberal Arts advisors. Should the course be considered appropriate, the student will be asked to obtain a written permission from FIT's Registrar’s Office prior to registering for the course.
LEAVE OF ABSENCES
For how long can completed ITM courses (required and electives) be used to fulfill graduation requirements?
At FIT, all requirements for a degree must be completed within five years from the point of admission. Your admissions date to ITM is posted in your DARS.
After five years, ITM courses previously completed must be taken again (or their new equivalents) to fulfill current degree requirements. The significant and dramatic changes taking place in five years in the international trade environment--such as new trade agreements or revisions of existing ones, government regulations, new sourcing markets and practices, fluctuations of international currencies, etc.-- make courses taken five years or earlier outdated and inapplicable to ITM's current program.
I abandoned the ITM program and now I want to come back to complete it. How do I do that?
It depends on your admissions date to ITM. If it has been longer than five years since you were admitted to ITM, see the previous question.
If you want to come back to complete the program within five years of your admissions date to ITM (your admissions date is posted in your DARS audit), you need to submit the form “Request For Re-Evaluation of Graduation” to FIT's Registrar Office (click here to obtain form). The Department may require you to take additional courses to those listed in your original program to update your studies. Make an appointment with the ITM Chair to explore your options.
