FAQ

What athletic facilities does RIT have?

The Center for Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation offers some of the finest athletic collegiate and recreational facilities in the country. Indoor and outdoor campus venues host intercollegiate practices, contests, intramural competitions, wellness courses and provide opportunities for recreational play. The Gordon Field House and Activities Center is available to students, faculty and staff and is home to a 60,000-square-foot field and event venue, an aquatics center and a fully equipped 16,000-square-foot fitness center.

What information do I have to send to my VR counselor every semester?

You need to send a copy of your financial aid award letter, class schedule, student bill, book list and grades.

Can I begin the ASLIE program at RIT/NTID any time during the academic year?

The American Sign Language-English Interpretation program follows a sequential course plan, including ASL I-VII and core interpreting courses. Because this course sequence begins in the fall semester, you are not permitted to begin the program during the spring or summer semesters.
