FAQ

Does RIT grant credit for advanced placement (A.P.) courses taken in high school?

Yes, students should request that a copy of their A.P. scores be sent to the NTID Office of Admissions. Depending on the grade of the AP exam, a student may be awarded college credit. If the AP exam is for a liberal arts course, a grade of 3, or higher will waive you out of one of your core courses. For technical AP's or courses related to the major, a 4 or 5 may be necessary to waive out of a course. During orientation, your academic advisor can answer questions about AP credit for specific courses in your program of study.

What does a student's level of hearing loss have to be in order to be eligible for NTID reduced tuition and access services?

An audiogram is required. Students must demonstrate 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.

How can I find student employment at RIT?

On the Student Employment Office website, you can find job listings and other information on finding a job on or off campus.
