How much is tuition?
RIT is truly an affordable choice. Because RIT receives special federal support for deaf and hard-of-hearing students, you can get a top-quality education at a substantially reduced rate. Because RIT receives special federal support, students who are deaf or hard of hearing pay less than one-half of RIT’s regular tuition rate. Hearing students studying ASL-English Interpretation or the MSSE program also receive this reduced tuition rate.
Can I pursue a double major?
Yes, if you are planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree you can combine any number of programs to create a double major that best meets your academic and professional goals. Learn about the guidelines that apply to the creation of a double major.
What types of financial aid are available?
Financial aid may include student loans, student employment, combinations of grant-in-aid, Vocational Rehabilitation and federal and state grants that are available for students in need. RIT's Financial Aid Office has more information.
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.
