If you are a high school student
You may apply to the two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree program. On completing that degree, many students choose to apply to FIT's two-year Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program in Advertising Design, Graphic Design, Packaging Design, or Visual Presentation and Exhibition Design.
If you have an AAS from FIT
You may apply to another AAS program. If admitted, you will have to take only major courses, not liberal arts. A one-year AAS is offered for eligible students with an FIT degree.
If you have credits or a degree from another college
You may apply to the Communication Design AAS program as a transfer student. A one-year AAS is offered for eligible transfer students from accredited colleges. Your credits will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. See transfer credit evaluation. Applicants to this program are expected to submit a competitive portfolio.
