Searching for the right college is one of the most challenging and exciting times in a student’s life. And it’s crucial for parents and families to be part of the process.

Because your role is important, we want you to know what makes a FIT education special. FIT is one of the most valuable resources for the fashion, art, design, business, and communication industries. Our singular approach to higher education balances a specialized curriculum with hands-on instruction—and underpins all of it with a rigorous liberal arts foundation. Students are exposed to their chosen fields through internships, professionally-sponsored projects, and guest lecturers. Ours is a complete college experience that connects students to New York City, to a wealth of city resources, to careers, and to a vibrant student life.
