FAQ

What is a cooperative work experience?

A cooperative work experience, sometimes called co-op, allows students to apply what they learn in the classroom to a real job. Most programs at RIT/NTID require at least one co-op as part of students' training and preparation.

Where can I send a fax?

You can send a fax at the NTID Help Desk window on the second floor of the LBJ building, Room 2525.
