All students attending class on the FIT campus must show proof of vaccination against COVID-19. For more information, see: Immunization Requirements.

Students are encouraged to register early, as classes may fill up or be canceled due to low registration.

Mathematics Proficiency is a requirement for the AAS degree and is a prerequisite for all mathematics and science classes. Based on placement, a student who shows need for improvement in mathematics may be required to enroll in MA 080 or MA 081 before registering for classes that have Mathematics Proficiency as prerequisite. Mathematics Proficiency may be demonstrated by a qualifying score on the mathematics portion of the SAT or ACT or by placement exam for students that do not have SAT or ACT scores. The Mathematics Proficiency may also be satisfied by transfer of an appropriate credit-bearing mathematics course or by a passing grade in an equivalent developmental mathematics course offered at another accredited college or university.
