How to Choose a Precollege Course

Selecting a Precollege course takes a bit of research on the student's part. Course selection is based on your major of interest, abilities and weaknesses, overall passion for the subject and availability. Choose a course you'll be excited about and one that fits your schedule!

STEP 1:  TIME COMMITMENT
Choose between 1-day Creative Career Seminars (HWE),  4-day Workshops (HSX, JSX) OR 10/11-day "LIVE" high school classes (HAC, HAD, HAR, HFA, etc...)         

  • "LIVE" classes for high school students that represent specific FIT majors. These 10/11 day asses are very popular among students preparing for art and design colleges and exploring FIT majors. 
  • WORKSHOPS focus on a specific set of skills or interests that may span several majors. These 4-day workshops are perfect for students who are hobbyists or are new to Precollege Programs.
  • CREATIVE CAREERS 4-hour sessions invite students to peak into the career journey of industry professionals in their dream job. These 1-day seminars are a perfect way to explore creative career opportinituies for busy students.
