The programs at the North Florida Institute of Theology and Technology (NFITT) are competency-based. Unlike traditional universities, NFITT does not award degrees based on credit hours or on a certain set of required courses. Instead, our students will earn their degrees by demonstrating their skills, knowledge, and understanding of important concepts through a series of carefully designed courses.
Our program guidelines are equivalent to the standards set forth by four largest regional accrediting commissions. Our university is one of three national universities that offer accelerated competency-based education programs. At this time the North Florida Institute of Theology and Technology is exempt by the Florida Department of Education from meeting accreditation requirements.
Assessments required to complete a program:
A course of study is comprised of five important aspects:
Defined competencies students are required to demonstrateLearning resources needed to gain the competenciesProgram mentor and course instructor guidance during the development of the competenciesParticipation in a learning community centered on the competenciesThe assessments of the competencies
Each course of study is assigned a number of competency units. Competency units are equivalent to one semester credit of learning.
Advancement Policies and Procedures
The North Florida Institute of Theology and Technology requires students to make measurable progress, toward completion of their degree program, every term.
On-Time Advancement (OTA) – Students completing a minimum of 12 competency units (CUs) at the undergraduate level, and 8 competency units at the graduate level, are considered to be making OTA and be on track for on-time graduation. OTA serves as a baseline from which students can accelerate their programs.
Academic Suspension due to lack of progress: Undergraduate students who complete less than 3 competency units in a term, or graduate students who complete less than 2 competency units in a term, are placed on academic suspension and are administratively withdrawn from the university at the end of the term.
Academic Expulsion due to lack of progress: Undergraduate students readmitted to the University following academic suspension and who fail to complete a minimum of 3 competency units in the readmission term are academically expelled and permanently removed from the University. Graduate students readmitted to the University following academic suspension and who fail to complete a minimum of 2 competency units in the readmission term are academically expelled and permanently removed from the University.
Students who wish to appeal administrative withdrawal, due to academic suspension or expulsion, may do so in writing at [email protected]. Appeals should be submitted between the 25th day of the last month of the current term (the term where less than 3 competency units are completed for undergraduate or 2 are completed for graduate), and up to the 5th day of the suspension term. Appeals must clearly state the reason the student failed to make academic progress and include an explanation of how the student will be academically successful if allowed to continue enrollment.
Students who withdraw due to academic suspension may appeal for readmission after 6 months from the date of suspension. Readmission is not guaranteed.
Evaluation Result Policy
If students do not pass performance assessments by the end of the term, they will receive a FAILURE on their degree plan and transcript. It is therefore in a student’s best interest to utilize the course of study and submit early in a term to enable additional submissions should their first attempt not pass. The time between task submission and the evaluation is longer toward the end of each month and at peak times, such as in advance of demonstration teaching audits in teacher licensure programs and near graduation deadlines. Students should plan accordingly.
Should a question or concern arise about a performance assessment result, students should contact their course professor.

The number by which a course is designated indicates the level of the course:
100-299: Lower-division courses primarily for freshmen and sophomores.
100-199: Primarily introductory and beginning courses.200-299: Intermediate-level courses.
