What does FYR and FFT mean?


On the common App for Rhode Island college, It asks what type of student you are. The two options I would be is either “FYR Freshman with no college work attempted” or “FFT Freshman with fewer than 24 attempted college credits” I’m a high school senior now, and I know I’m going to be a freshman, but i have dual enrollment credits. It would help if I knew what those letters stood for.

I would assume that FYR is "first-year," and FFT somehow relates to a transfer application. However, I wasn't able to find anything relating to this online. Your best bet is probably to call the college's admissions office for clarification—better safe than sorry.

Best of luck!

FYR means Financial Year, is a 12-month period used by a government, business, or organization to calculate how much money is being earned, spent, etc.

FFT means Framework for Teaching, (I searched this one up, but I'm not sure if I found the right one)

I hope some of this helped and good luck with graduation!

Sorry, I couldn't find the real meaning for FFT, there is too many meanings that doesn't match.
