Do I need to choose a major before I apply?
Yes. You must select one major when you submit your application for admission. You cannot choose an undeclared major or double major. FIT does offer a variety of Liberal Arts Minors .
Do I need to submit a portfolio?
Only applicants to a major in the School of Art and Design will be asked to submit a portfolio. The portfolio evaluation is done by your major department. The results of that evaluation are forwarded to the Admissions Office and are considered when we render a decision. Your portfolio should demonstrate your artistic ability and creativity, as well as enthusiasm for, and potential to succeed in, your chosen major. See General Portfolio Guidelines .
When should I submit my portfolio?
You can use our posted guidelines to begin assembling your portfolio well before you apply. You may submit your portfolio once you receive your login credentials for MyFIT (soon after you submit your SUNY application). More specific details about your portfolio submission will be provided to you with your login information.
