The Academic Advisement Center uses AgileGrad for our appointment system. We are the first center to use this software, and we want to make sure you have all the information you need to use it. Please review the user guide below.
If you already know how to use our appointment system, click here to make an appointment with your advisor.
In the guide below, you'll find information about:
- how to schedule an appointment,
- how to check in for an existing appointment,
- how to request a new appointment time,
- how to cancel an appointment, and
- how to browse a list of our advisors using our appointment system.
How to Access the Appointment System:
Under the Student tab in MyFIT, click on Make an appointment with your Academic Advisor in the Online Resources box. That link will take you to the main page of the system, where you can schedule an appointment, check in for an existing appointment, and learn more about our advisors. Note: if you do not see this link on your MyFIT, please review the list of programs we serve.
Click on Schedule a new appointment or Make An Appointment to log in.
Click Login through SSO to access the main login screen.
For your security, this screen asks you to verify your identity using FIT's Central Authentication Service (CAS). Enter your FIT username and password and click LOGIN. This will bring you to the calendar screen.
The colored bubbles on the screenshot below explain the fields you will be using to schedule an appointment on the calendar screen.
Using this screen, you can view the days and times your advisor is available for appointments. Select your advisor's name under Select advisor to view availability and your advisor's schedule will appear in the calendar. Available appointment times show up as green boxes.
You may select an appointment time either by filling out the field marked Date and time of your appointment or by clicking one of the green boxes in the calendar. If you want to make an appointment for a different date, click the Next week button until the correct date is displayed.
Your name, ID number, and email address will be filled in automatically. Leave Select Emphasis as “Any.” Then fill out all the other fields. Please make sure you fill out all fields; if you don’t, your appointment request won’t be submitted.
When you have filled out the required fields, click Schedule Appointment. An appointment request will automatically be sent to your advisor, who will send an email via Agilegrad to your FIT email address to confirm your appointment.
Please note: your appointment is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation email from AgileGrad. You should receive this confirmation within one business day. If you have not received confirmation from AgileGrad after one business day, please call 212 217.3080 or email email@example.com so that we may assist you.
