Online Degree Option:
The two-year online degree is designed to give students flexibility in earning a Bachelor of Science degree (see Online Degree Programs for additional information).

NOTE: Students must have taken the following course prior to entering the program: SS 141.

If you are a high school student 

You may not apply directly to the bachelor’s degree program. High school students should apply to a two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree program and after completing that degree apply to the two-year bachelor’s program.

If you have an AAS from FIT

You may apply to the bachelor’s degree program.

If you have credits or a degree from another college

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

  • you will have an associate’s or bachelor's degree from an accredited college in a program that is equivalent to any FIT AAS program or in liberal arts. (This is a guideline; graduates in other areas or with graduate degrees may also be considered.)
  • you will have earned at least 60 credits toward a bachelor's degree in an equivalent or related program at an accredited college.

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

Please note that FIT AAS students receive priority admissions consideration.
