Our goal is to partner with you, your professors, and other administrative offices to guide you. You can expect an ongoing collaborative relationship with a caring mentor who will help you explore your intellectual and creative interests, complete your degree requirements, and participate in experiential learning activities such as internships. The more you participate in the process, the better your outcome will be.

In addition to the resources we provide, FIT offers more ways to help you succeed inside and outside the classroom:

  • Academic Skills Tutoring Center: Not only can you find tutors here, but you can apply to tutor other students. It's a great way to get involved and give back.
  • Writing and Speaking Studio: Work on your written and verbal communication skills, which will be pivotal to your long-term success in the workplace.
  • Student Support Policies: Need to withdraw from a course? Seeking a grade change, or want to transfer? Find out about all that and more in our policies.
