Registration Assignment Times

Find Your Registration Date and Time

If your student status (currently enrolled) permits registration, your registration date and time will appear in MyFIT.  

  • Log in to MyFIT, under Online Resources, select Registration
  • Select Check Your Registration Status
  • Select and submit a term from the drop-down menu

This is an example of how your date and time will be displayed:registration time date

If you have an active registration hold, you will not have access to registration until the hold has been cleared.  

If you are not currently enrolled at FIT you will not have a registration time or access to registration. Contact Admissions about applying or being re-admitted to the college.

How Are Priority Registration Dates and Times Assigned?

Continuing Students

Registration start dates and times for currently enrolled, degree-seeking students are automatically assigned based on the number of credits completed (including transfer credits).

Students’ academic information is stored in a database. The database runs a process that evenly divides all currently registered degree students into a group, based on total number of completed credits. Completed, or "earned" credits, do not include courses "In-Progress."

Registration times are assigned at half-hour increments across five (5) business days from 9 am–5:30 pm Eastern Time. Assignment times are not the only time you may register: you may continue to make changes to your schedule through the add/drop period.

First Time Students

Assignment times for students registering for the first time at FIT as degree-seeking students are completely random. Transfer credits are not considered. New student registration times are assigned at half-hour increments keeping to group max limits. 

Changing Registration Start Times

The Registrar’s Office will not change registration assignment times for any reason. The process is automated based on earned credit amounts. Moving a student to an earlier date or time would require the system to push students with more completed credits to later days and times, to keep to group max limits. This would be unfair and against the rules of the automated process.

Remember, the time assigned is not the only time you may register; it is just the first time you have access.
