At the end of this Spring semester, I will have officially completed my Associate’s degree at FIT. I am very excited for this accomplishment and look forward to continuing on with my Bachelor’s degree. As most of you know, FIT’s programs work on a “2 + 2” system, and at the end of your associate’s degree, you must re-apply for your bachelor’s. I’m going to go through the graduation process, this re-application process and how to confirm your spot within your bachelor’s program once you get accepted.
Graduating with your associate’s:
In order to continue onto your bachelor’s, you must officially complete and graduate from your associate’s degree. This is an easy process. In the student tab of MyFIT, under “Online Resources” is a link that reads “Graduation Application“. It’s super simple and super quick to fill out.
Applying for your bachelor’s:
Next step is to officially submit an application into your bachelor’s program. Again, in the student tab of MyFIT, in the “Online Resources” section is a link that reads “Admissions Application Status“. This again is very simple and quick to fill out. It shouldn’t take any longer than 10 minutes to fill out. Once this is completed, you will have officially sent in your application and will just need to wait for your acceptance letter. Internal applicants will hear of their decision by March 1st while external applicants will hear of their decision by April 1st.
Confirming your bachelor’s acceptance:
Once you receive your bachelor’s acceptance letter, you will be told that you need to make a deposit in order to secure your spot. Your acceptance letter should have all the details regarding how to make a payment but make sure to send everything in by the deadline on the letter, otherwise, it could go to someone else on the waitlist.
