Request Information

If you would like to receive detailed information about RIT/NTID in the mail, please complete the form below.


How long do parents generally stay?

Because all workshops/meetings are optional for parents, it is up to you if you'd like to stay for a few days or leave after your student moves into his/her dorm room. However, please know that your student will be taking placement tests (check their schedule on Move-In Day). So, please do say your well-wishes so that the student can settle in and prepare for the placement tests, classes, etc.

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.
Do you service hearing aids and cochlear implants? Can I buy batteries, earmolds, etc.?

Our hearing aid shop is located on the third floor of LBJ – room 3130. They provide hearing tests, hearing aid checks, hearing aid repairs, hearing aid and cochlear implant consultations, hearing aid evaluations, and cochlear implant mappings.

Students and CounselorsOur 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.
