If you’ve already chosen a major of interest and are ready to commit, you can begin earning credits now or continue to develop more advanced portfolio pieces. Successful completion of these courses allow you to transfer credits to select undergraduate programs upon acceptance. Students enrolled in credit courses can access FIT’s campus resources, including technology, labs, and full digital and on-campus library privileges.
Raise your GPA
If your high school transcript does not reflect your current academic abilities, or you’d like to begin earning transferable Liberal Arts credits now, these courses will help our Admissions team see you in a new light.
In conjunction with FIT's School of Liberal Arts, select credit courses are offered to students who wish to improve their GPA’s. Each course bears liberal arts credits that can be transferred to most colleges and universities. These courses are designed to broaden the student's understanding of the humanities, strengthen critical thinking and communication skills, develop a knowledge of the natural and social sciences, and prepare students to function effectively in a culturally diverse world.
