We encourage study abroad. If you are applying as an incoming junior, please advise where you intend to study. 

Transfer Students        

The program welcomes applications from transfer students who are entering their junior year at FIT for the fall semester only.  All the above criteria for incoming juniors apply.

International Students

We welcome applications from incoming freshmen and incoming juniors from all over the world.

One-Year Students

This program is not designed for one-year students since they are not required to take Liberal Arts courses.
