The Counseling Center provides private and confidential services, free of charge to all registered, degree-seeking students.

Students come to the FIT Counseling Center for assistance with a variety of personal and academic concerns. Students are encouraged to contact the Counseling Center when concerns are emerging and not to wait, as problems left untreated or unresolved can become much larger and affect one’s personal and academic well-being.

The Counseling Center offers triage assessments, typically within 10 days of a student's initial request for treatment. One to three additional individual sessions may be offered to students on a case-by-case basis. Group referrals, as well as referrals to an outside resource are provided as needed. All students who are in crisis and need to be seen immediately will be given a same-day risk-assessment to determine how best to proceed.

FIT-ABLE is a support service for FIT students, upholding the mandates of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Titles II and III.

The office is a National Voter Registration Act voter registration site.

FIT’s Health Services is a primary care facility staffed by nurse practitioners, registered nurses, and physicians. The office provides general medical and gynecological care. A referral list of consultants is available when a specialist’s evaluation and treatment are required.

FIT has a mandatory health insurance policy. All full-time students are automatically billed for health insurance. Students can be excused from the mandatory insurance if they have equal or better Affordable Care Act (ACA)-compliant health insurance from a US-based company. In order to waive the mandatory insurance, it is necessary to complete and submit a waiver form by the deadline. For deadline dates and other insurance information, contact Health Services.

New York State Public Health Law (NYS PHL) mandates that students enrolled for at least six (6) semester credit hours or the equivalent per semester must provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps, rubella, and meningitis in order to attend classes. Students born prior to January 1, 1957, and provide proof of birth date are exempt from these requirements.

Please note that according to NYS PHL, no institution shall permit any student to attend the institution in excess of 30 days or to register for the next semester’s classes without complying with this law.

Immunization documentation and completed health forms are required prior to moving into our residence halls or attending class. Immunization documentation can be submitted and health forms completed at the FIT Student Health Portal.
