Eligibility

If you are a high school student

If you have an AAS from FIT
You may apply to the bachelor's degree program. The Fabric Styling BFA is a professional art degree related to Textile Design.

If the interested AAS student from FIT is not an Art and Design AAS graduate, in order to be eligible for consideration, the applicant must complete an additional 30 credits in art and design coursework, including: 6 credits of art/design history and 24 credits that include coursework in drawing, digital drawing in Adobe Creative Suite or Illustrator, and a combination of design-focused courses for professional artists.

If you have credits or a degree from another college

  • you will have an earned associates degree from an accredited college and your credits include: 18 credits meeting SUNY general education requirements, 30 credits in art and design coursework, including: 6 credits of art/design history and 24 credits that include coursework in drawing, digital drawing in Adobe Creative Suite or Illustrator, and a combination of design-focused courses for professional artists.
