IF YOU ARE A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT

IF YOU HAVE AN AAS FROM FIT

You may apply to the bachelor's degree program. Depending on your major, you may have to take certain prerequisite or equivalent courses before you apply. See a Home Products faculty advisor for information.

IF YOU HAVE CREDITS OR A DEGREE FROM ANOTHER COLLEGE

You may apply to the two-year Textile Development and Marketing BS program as a transfer student if you meet one of the following criteria by the time you enroll at FIT:  

  • you will have an associates or bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college in a program that is equivalent to the FIT AAS program
  • you will have earned at least 60 credits toward a bachelor's degree in an equivalent program at a regionally accredited college.  

A college program is equivalent if it contains the same major area and liberal arts distribution as the FIT Textile Development and Marketing BS program. Applicants from college programs that are not equivalent must apply to the AAS program.

Please note that FIT AAS students receive priority admissions consideration.
