Students applying to FIT must submit official transcripts from all previously attended
colleges as part of the admissions application process. An official transcript is
required from each institution attended before transfer credit will be awarded. Transfer
credit review presumes official transcript(s) from all colleges attended prior to
applying to FIT have been submitted. Therefore, once a student enrolls for the first
term at FIT, transfer credit will not be considered from colleges that were not disclosed
during the admissions application process.
The Registrar’s Office evaluates college-level liberal arts courses for possible transfer credit. Courses taken in a major or related area must be evaluated by the academic department.
A grade of C or better must be earned for approval of transfer credit. Transfer credit is assigned a grade of T and will not affect the FIT grade point average.
