FAQ

What does the campus look like?

RIT’s campus encompasses 238 buildings on 1,300 acres and is located in the suburbs, about six miles from downtown Rochester—far enough to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, but just minutes away if you want to explore and enjoy the city’s entertainment, cultural and employment opportunities.

In the academic heart of campus, you’ll find premier facilities—classroom, laboratory and research. There’s no question that we have one of the most sophisticated, high-tech campuses in the nation, and we stay ahead of the curve by continually investing in and upgrading our campus infrastructure.

We invite you to take a virtual tour of RIT.

How do I know if my financial aid application is completed?

You can find this information on the RIT Financial Aid Self-Service website.

As a transfer student, do I need to submit SAT or ACT scores or a high school transcript?

Typically, students with 30 or more college credits with grades of “C” or higher do not need to submit ACT or SAT scores or a high school transcript. Keep in mind, this may be a case-by-case decision, depending on courses taken, grade point average and other academic factors.
