We encourage students to initiate contact with our office. Making that first phone call on your own is a way to acknowledge you are ready to take on the responsibilities of being a college student. Itís easy! We will need for you to give us your documentation, which is reviewed in our office upholding your confidentiality.

Students with disabilities should register for services once admitted or registered for classes. Registering with FIT-ABLE is not mandatory, but in order to receive accommodations you must be registered.

Registering is a two-step process:

Step one: 
Mail, fax, email or hand deliver your documentation to verify your disability:

Mail:                    Office of Disability Support Services
Room A570
Fashion Institute of Technology

New York, NY 10001
Phone:                (212) 217-4090
Fax:                    (212) 217-4091 
Hand Deliver:    Room A570 

Step two: 
All students must have their first meeting with the Coordinator, Disability Support Services. This meeting can take from 30 minutes to 50 minutes, so schedule accordingly. Bring with you your new FIT ID number (the @number), your schedule of classes if youíve already registered, and your documentation, if you havenít mailed it or faxed it to us. Schedule appointment
