FAQ

Where do I get a parking pass for my car?

The parking web site provides information on how to register your vehicle and get a parking pass or permit to park in reserved spaces.

What are Tiger Bucks?

"Tiger Bucks" are a convenient debit account accessed through the RIT ID card and available to all RIT students, faculty, and staff. More than 75 on- and off-campus locations accept Tiger Bucks for a number of services and products.

Do I need to know ASL before applying to RIT's interpreting program?

To enter the program you need to demonstrate beginning-level competency in ASL. For most students this will mean the completion of a course titled ASL I or Beginning ASL. We will assess your ASL ability to verify you satisfy the entry requirement. If you have no prior knowledge of sign language, you can still apply for entry into the program. This will mean that you will take general education courses, along with ASL I in the fall semester, ASL II in spring semester and ASL III in summer semester. You will have to pass ASL I with a grade of C or better to continue in the program. Get additional information on RIT's ASL-English Interpretation program.
