The Office of the Registrar notifies students of their academic standing in writing (via email and mail) at the end of the fall and spring semesters. Students whose academic standing is academic probation or academic dismissal may appeal the decision to the Faculty Senate Committee on Academic Standards. The academic standing appeal procedure is a formal request by a student seeking to appeal for an exception to the academic standing regulations as published in the college catalogue and on the following website: fitnyc.edu/registrar.
A student may appeal their status for three consecutive regular semesters following the decision of probation or dismissal. Following are the criteria for academic probation or academic dismissal: • A student is placed on probation if the semester GPA (grade point average) is below 2.0. • A student is not subject to academic dismissal at the end of the first semester in a degree program. •
A student will be dismissed from the college after two consecutive semesters with a GPA below 2.0. Students who have been academically dismissed from the college are permitted to take only noncredit-bearing courses offered through the School of Continuing and Professional Studies. Please see fitnyc.edu/registrar for complete details for the academic standing appeal process and a copy of the appeal form.
The Office of the Registrar evaluates courses from any other accredited college. Transfer credit is awarded only for coursework similar to courses required for a current FIT degree and only when official transcripts and/or score reports have been submitted for review. Only the Registrar can determine individual courses that will transfer to FIT; however, there are some general guidelines
