Will my health insurance be covered in New York State?
Generally speaking, your current health insurance MIGHT cover you during emergencies only. If you need to see a doctor for a check-up or to get prescription medicine, your insurance may NOT cover you. You must review your plan to see if you're covered. If you are not and you seek medical help, you may be charged the full price for any medical services and that can be quite expensive!
Please go to the RIT Student Health Center's website for insurance information. Medicare and/or Medicaid may not be accepted in New York so you need to check and see if it will be accepted in New York/Monroe County.
Also, prescription medicine information can also be found at the Student Health Center's website too.
My friends aren’t going to SVP. Why do I have to?
If you are accepted to the College of NTID, you will need to attend SVP. Those students accepted to the other colleges within RIT (College of Science, College of Engineering, etc.) are expected to participate in their own orientation at a later date/time.
Where can I learn about undergraduate admissions criteria?
The NTID Office of Admissions provides admissions information and materials as well as an online application. Get answers to frequently asked questions about the admissions process. For additional questions email us.
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!
