We are registered for a Group Tour or a Panther Scavenger Hunt. Are these events still taking place?
In a precautionary response to recent public health concerns around COVID-19, Florida Tech has suspended all Group Tours and Panther “Scavenger Hunts” at this time. We hope you can join us at a later date. Keep checking back on our visitor page for visit opportunities!
We are registered for the upcoming Discovery Day or Admitted Student Day. Are these events still taking place?
At the current time, we are not offering large-scale events. We are currently developing a time frame to reschedule these events when feasible.
Florida Tech is scheduled to visit my area. Will a representative still come here?
Our travel has been limited due to travel restrictions, school closures, and many event cancellations. For the most up to date Admission Team travel plans, please visit https://admissions.fit.edu/portal/travel. As events are rescheduled, we will add them here.
Have there been any confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Florida Tech community?
Please visit https://www.fit.edu/coronavirus/ for the most up to date information as it changes daily.
My current school closed. Will you accept an unofficial transcript?
Yes. We accept unofficial transcripts to make admission decisions. We understand that many schools are closed and this will delay final transcripts.
Will unofficial documents or scores affect timing of admission notification?
No. As of now, this does not change our plans for any decisions coming from our office.
