About FIT Fort Lee
The U.S. Army Logistics Management College (ALMC) was established in October 1954 with the mission to conduct the Army Supply Management Course at Fort Lee, Virginia. The college has since grown to the Army Logistics University (ALU), an institution with multiple missions covering all military logistics functions. Florida Tech conducts evening graduate-level courses in facilities of the ALU at Fort Lee, Virginia. These programs are available to active-duty military, military family members, U.S. government employees and logistics and procurement professionals who meet admission requirements of the university. The course offerings listed in this catalog may be adjusted to provide maximum responsiveness to the needs of the participants.
ALU/FLORIDA TECH PARTNERSHIP
Since 1973, ALMC and now ALU with Florida Tech have worked cooperatively in offering graduate level degree programs. All Florida Tech graduate degree programs require completion of 33 credit hours (excluding possible prerequisites). Florida Tech and the US Army have established a number of cooperative graduate degree programs that combine the military instruction at ALU with Florida Tech graduate courses leading to a masters of science degree. Participation in a cooperative degree program requires completion of an ALU course, followed by two or three academic semesters as a full-time student. ALU/Florida Tech cooperative degree programs are currently available in conjunction with:
- Intern Logistics Studies Program (iLog) and
- Operations Research/Systems Analysis Course (ORSA).
Requirements may be completely fulfilled through resident attendance at the Fort Lee site, online studies and transfer credit from approved military programs and/or another master’s degree program. A maximum of 12 credit hours may be transferred into a Florida Tech graduate degree program. An official transcript is required to verify that a grade of B or better was achieved before transfer credit can be approved. Many courses taught by the ALU and the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) can be used to provide transfer credit toward these degree programs. The following is a partial list of military courses most commonly used by students for transfer credit:
- Combined Logistics Captains Career Course (CLC3), 6 credit hours
- Operations Research/Systems Analysis Military Applications Course (ORSA), 12 credit hours; and
- Intern Logistics Studies Program (iLog), 12 credit hours
Individuals desiring to enroll in iLog or ORSA courses and participate in the ALU/Florida Tech cooperative degree programs must request approval through appropriate military or Federal agency personnel channels and their chain of command. Students should complete an application for admission to Florida Tech indicating acceptance for one of the military course that are part of the cooperative degree program.
Florida Tech degree programs are approved for the payment of military tuition assistance and veterans education benefits.
Florida Tech provides an opportunity for the continuing education of Fort Lee personnel who wish to maintain their professional and technical competence and/or enhance their development and career progression. The typical part-time student can completes graduate degree requirements in two years at the normal load of two courses per academic session. This time may be reduced if transfer credits are accepted from other civilian institutions or designated military schools. Part-time students must complete all degree requirements within a period not to exceed seven years.
