Noncredit Refund Procedures
Students must confirm that they are fully vaccinated for COVID and upload proof of vaccination to FIT prior to arriving on-campus for in-person courses, as directed in your "Welcome to FIT CCPS" confirmation email. Per SUNY mandate, all students are now required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend in-person classes and continue their enrollment at FIT. Students have until Sept. 27 to be fully vaccinated; weekly PCR testing requirements continue until the Sept. 27 deadline. Refunds will not be issued or adjusted as a result of failing to show confirmation of submission at the door.
Requests must be received 24 business hours prior to start of program for a full refund.
Requests received after a course's completion cannot be fulfilled.
Request a refund in the CCPS Registration System:
- Log in to your student account
- Select Login > Student Login
- Login using your CCPS Registration System credentials (they are not the same as your FIT credentials). If you forgot your login information please use the username / password reset tools.
- Select My Courses
- Select DROP on the course you would like to drop
Your refund request will be processed as quickly as possible.
Official withdrawal is accomplished by requesting a refund for the specific course you wish to drop or submitting your intent to withdraw in writing. Not attending class or stopping payment on a check or credit card is not considered official withdrawal. In either of those cases, you will be responsible for paying your tuition and fees.
Guest Speaker changes are not accepted as a reason for refund requests.
FIT is not responsible for hotel, travel, or other costs incurred by program participants as a result of a course cancellation, including force majeure events including but not limited to widespread illness, public health conditions, act of government, and pandemic events such as, but not limited to, the coronavirus.
High School and Middle School students and parents should refer to the Precollege Programs Refund Procedures.
