Who leads RIT?
Dr. William W. Destler became president of Rochester Institute of Technology on July 1, 2007. He is the ninth president in the university's 182-year history. He was formerly senior vice president for academic affairs and provost of the University of Maryland at College Park. At RIT, Dr. Destler is responsible for one of the nation's leading career-oriented universities with 17,200 students from all 50 states and more than 100 foreign countries, 3,400 faculty and staff, an annual operating budget of more than $629 million, and an endowment of nearly $600 million.

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.
I want to try out for an RIT sports team. What do I do?
We welcome you to try out! Be aware that you can join a sports team for fun (Intramurals) or for competition (Division I or Division III). We do not have separate deaf and hearing teams. The only exception is DBA/Deaf Basketball Association. If you do want to try out for a competitive sport, please go to the RIT Athletics website, find the coach and email that person to indicate your interest in trying out. You will need to explain your previous experiences, awards, records, etc. NTID does have a liasion who assists in answering questions, offers support, etc. Feel free to also contact Astrid "AJ" Jones (email@example.com) to talk more. Be aware that tryouts or practices/games may conflict with Orientation activities. You will be responsible to keep the coach and the SVP Coordinator informed if there are conflicts. We will work together to ensure that you are covering your responsibilities for both things.
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.
Ready to apply? Three ways to get started:
- You can request application materials and we'll send them to you via postal mail,
- complete the application online via the RIT admissions portal, or
- download the application forms, print and mail them in.
Choose the application method that's best for you!
