Where can I find tutoring help?
Tutoring is available through The NTID Learning Consortium and includes the NTID Learning Center and the Sprint Relay Experimental Distance Learning/Access Demonstration Lab. Consortium goals center on supporting the academic success of RIT/NTID students, and experimenting with instructional access technologies to support the learning of deaf and hard-of-hearing students. Tutoring also is available for deaf or hard-of-hearing students enrolled in bachelor’s degree programs in RIT’s other colleges.
What is an "official audiogram?"
The audiogram should include the date it was performed, the signature of the audiologist who performed the test, and all other information as stated on the Audiogram Form. Audiograms should have been done within the past three years. The form may be copied and sent electronically, mailed in, or faxed to us at 585-475-2696.
How often do I have to apply for FAFSA?
Every year. Available after January 1.
Our admission process is a personal one. Each application is reviewed holistically for strength of academic preparation, performance on standardized tests, counselor recommendations and your personal career interests. We seek applicants from all geographical, social, cultural, economic and ethnic backgrounds.
Deaf and hard-of-hearing students are required to submit an audiogram to qualify for admission. Students must have a significant hearing loss, and demonstrate the ability to benefit from the models used at RIT/NTID designated specifically to provide access to academic programs for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
