Commencement 20 20


FIT is committed to honoring you, our graduates of the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021, in spring 2021.

Unfortunately, due to the extraordinary circumstances caused by the ongoing pandemic as well as the Covid-19 restrictions that prevent large-scale events such as FIT's commencement ceremonies from being held in theaters either on campus or in locations across New York City, we are planning to hold virtual ceremonies in May 2021.

An update regarding the dates of your commencement ceremonies will be shared by early February.

While we truly regret that we cannot mark this milestone in your lives in person, we will mark the occasion and celebrate your accomplishments this spring with a graduation event that is joyous and memorable. We promise to hold a ceremony that makes you proud to be an FIT graduate.

See President Brown’s most recent communication here.

We are monitoring this overall situation on a regular basis and if the conditions improve in the next couple of months, we will revisit this decision. Check back here for ongoing news and details.
