Noncredit Study at FIT

Certificate Ceremony

We know you're busy. That's why FIT's Center for Continuing and Professional Studies has noncredit certificates and courses that will fit your demanding schedule. Our noncredit programs are unique offerings that focus on a specific area or skill set not traditionally offered in a formal degree program.


Certificates are abbreviated courses of study in specialized fields that can provide much-needed skills and knowledge in specific areas. These programs provide comprehensive coverage of a particular topic and grant a certificate of completion at the end of the course of study.

Noncredit certificate programs are designed for students seeking to elevate their career and pursue new opportunities. An FIT/SUNY certificate is an excellent addition to a resume, setting you apart from other candidates.

Creative Workforce of the Future

We are living through a fundamental workforce transformation during which digital technology has begun to alter the skills companies are looking for. In collaboration with the Creative Technology & Design subject area, FIT’s Center for Continuing and Professional Studies (CCPS) is creating a series of certificate programs and specialized courses that are forward-thinking. Our mission is to initiate a transformative journey for creatives worldwide so they can design a better future for all of us in the digital age.

English Language Study Certificates

Certificate programs are offered Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters.  The various certificate programs are designed for all levels of learning, from preparing students for college-level studies to those employed or seeking work in the global fashion and related industries.


Noncredit Courses

These are short intensive programs, typically between 1-8 sessions per course, and are graded on a pass/fail basis. These courses do not carry college credits; they cannot be transferred to another college or counted towards a degree program at FIT.
