If you have an AAS from FIT 

You may apply to the Bachelor of Science program.

If you have credits or a degree from another college

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

  • you will have earned at least 60 credits toward a bachelor's degree in an equivalent or related 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 Production Management AAS 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.
