Be sure to select a few alternatives, in case your first choices are not available.

To ensure that your transfer credits are applied to your FIT record, make sure that all final, official transcripts have been sent to Admissions, Room C139. To check your transfer credits, please see your degree audit (DARS). A degree audit is a computer-based assessment that shows the progress you are making toward meeting your degree requirements. Any course granted as transfer credit will be printed with a “T” grade on your degree audit in the appropriate place for the requirement. Degree audits are available in the Online Information System section of MyFIT. Go to www.fitnyc.edu/DARS for full instructions
Placement in English writing and Math is required for incoming students. To check your placement status, please see your degree audit (DARS). Go to www.fitnyc.edu/DARS for full instructions. If you have not submitted SAT or ACT scores, been granted appropriate transfer credit or taken the FIT placement tests by January 11, you cannot register for your English, math, or science courses at this time. Instead you should plan on registering for two courses in disciplines that don’t require placement, like Social Science or History of Art. If your placement results require you to take developmental coursework— Educational and/or Math Skills courses— please note that this will be in addition to, and not part of, the required eight courses. Go to www.fitnyc.edu/3522.asp for details.
