FIT's Academic Advisement Center is here to help with all types of academic questions in order to make your academic experience as smooth and rewarding as possible. We embrace a holistic, developmental approach to student success, recognizing your dynamic, creative, career-oriented spirit. Our goal is to build strong partnerships with you, your faculty, and other administrative offices to support you through every stage of your academic life at FIT.

The Academic Advisement Center is looking forward to getting to know you and having the opportunity to work with you during your academic career. We will begin advisement for all new students entering the Spring 2018 semester beginning on Monday, December 4, 2018. Please schedule an appointment using our online appointment system and visit the New Student Advisement page to familiarize yourself with the list of helpful links in advance to your appointment.

We are excited to introduce our Academic Advisement Newsletter! Each semester you will find it filled with bits of useful information and will highlight various academic resources on campus. Our newsletter is one more way we can provide you with useful information as a member of the FIT community. Of course, this newsletter will never replace the personalized advice you get from our knowledgeable and friendly advisors! Please schedule an appointment today!

Current students placed on academic probation need to meet with their academic advisor. Please schedule an appointment before Spring 18' registration deadlines for full registration access.
