The college offers 26 baccalaureate programs leading to either the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. Admissions priority is given to FIT’s AAS graduates, although external applicants who meet the eligibility requirements are also encouraged to apply. FIT’s AAS graduates who apply by the application recommended filing dates are given priority consideration for admission into the same major’s baccalaureate-level program.
Applicants must have met the General Education (p. 33) requirements and maintained the required GPA. Applicants who do not meet these criteria or who wish acceptance into another program may require an interview, or an interview and artwork evaluation.
The associate-level major pages (p. 83) show the recommended bachelor’s programs available to students from each of FIT’s AAS programs. Associate-level students who wish to apply to a baccalaureate-level program other than those recommended should review the courses on the applicable baccalaureate-level major (p. 131) pages and consult with the appropriate department chairperson for advisement.
Applicants seeking admission to one of FIT’s bachelor’s degree programs must hold an AAS degree from FIT or an equivalent degree or 60 appropriate credits from a four-year bachelor’s degree program. They must also meet the appropriate prerequisites as required by the major, complete requisite art or specialized courses for the major, and have completed FIT’s general education/ liberal arts requirements. Further requirements may include an interview with a departmental committee, review of academic standing, and artwork evaluation for all applicants to BFA programs.
