Central Florida Institute of Technology has an open admission policy. This means that our admission process is unselective and non-competitive; the only criteria for admission is that students have a high school diploma or GED certificate. In addition, CFIT has a rolling admissions process, meaning we accept new students year-round. However, if you plan to start classes in the fall or spring, you will want to submit your application by the posted deadline. You can complete your entire application online, then follow the steps to enroll below to finish the enrollment process and start classes.
