To join us on campus for in-person courses, all students are required to provide proof of full vaccination.
By enrolling in an in-person course:
You are confirming that you are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and will upload your proof of vaccination to FIT prior to arriving on-campus as per the SUNY mandate and as directed below.
You also acknowledge that you must present FIT's "Confirmation of Vaccination Submission" to FIT's Public Safety Officers to enter the building for your in-person course.
Failure to produce this confirmation of submission of vaccination proof will result in my inability to participate in the course. Refunds will not be issued or adjusted as a result of failing to show confirmation of submission at the door.
Online courses are conducted in a traditional online asynchronous environment: you will log in and complete coursework on your own schedule. Online courses require the same amount of work as classroom courses, but since they are self-paced, they are ideal for students in various time zones or with unconventional work schedules.
In most courses you will be asked to log on a few times a week to participate in online discussions, read lectures, complete weekly assignments, and interact with the instructor and other students. You will complete the course in your own time when it is convenient for you. There is no live instruction in online courses, which is why there is no assigned meeting time and only a date range for the class.
