Question: What if I cannot attend Orientation?
Answer:
You can view the slideshow of the presentation on our website at: http://www.fitnyc.edu/10602.aspParents and students can only explore the campus together on orientation days, so if you cannot attend the session, your child should print the classroom maps available on our Opening Day link (http://www.fitnyc.edu/10617.asp) to see how to navigate the campus.

STUDENT ID CARDS:
(details http://www.fitnyc.edu/10095.asp)

  • All students in the Summer Live Program (July 9 through 26) are required to have a photo ID card before Opening Day (July 9). You may obtain your ID card at any Orientation Session or by visiting our Security Office during the hours listed on the details link above.
  •  Precollege Workshop students DO NOT require a photo ID card.  They will ALL get a special workshop ID card at the entrance on July 30th. No need to make a special trip to the campus.
  •  Old FIT ID cards: If you have a photo ID card from a previous semester, GREAT! You do not need a new card. We will give you a Summer 2012 sticker for your card at the door on Opening Day (July 9th). No need to make a special trip to the campus.
