Transfer credit is awarded only for course work similar to courses required for your current FIT degree and only when official transcripts and/or score reports have been submitted for review. Only the registrar can determine individual courses that will transfer to FIT; however, there are some general guidelines:
- Students who have completed equivalent courses will receive transfer credit for course work in which a grade of "C" or better has been earned.
- Students who have taken the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and earned a mean score that meets or exceeds the equivalent of a grade of "C" in a formal course will receive transfer credit.
- Students who have taken the Advanced Placement Exam and earned a score of three (3) or higher on a scale of five (5) points will receive transfer credit.
- Students who have taken the International Baccalaureate Exam for higher level courses and earned a grade of 4 or higher will receive transfer credit.
Students should contact the major department upon their initial arrival on campus to arrange an appointment for a review of major courses for possible transfer credit. In addition, a department may request additional information on learning outcomes of the course as well as a sample of student work in a portfolio.
If you take courses at another institution during summer or winter terms and would like to transfer credit to FIT, you should submit the and obtain Registrar approval before registering for a course at another college.
