If you are a high school student
You may not apply directly to the bachelor's degree program. High school students should apply to FIT's two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) program in Communication Design and after completing that degree, apply to the two-year Bachelor of Fine Arts in Advertising Design.
Applicants to this program are expected to provide a competitive portfolio.
If you have credits or a degree from another college
You may apply to the two-year Advertising Design BFA program as a transfer student if you meet one of the following criteria by the time you enroll at FIT:
- you will have an associates or bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited college in a program that is equivalent to the FIT Communication Design AAS program; or
- you will have earned at least 60 credits toward a bachelor's degree in an equivalent program at a regionally-accredited college.
A college program is equivalent if it contains the same major area and liberal arts distribution as the FIT Communication Design AAS program. Applicants from college programs that are not equivalent must apply to the Communication Design AAS program. Most transfer students are eligible for the one-year AAS program.
Applicants to this program are expected to provide a competitive portfolio. Please note that FIT AAS students receive priority admissions consideration.
