FAQ

Can I request test accommodations when taking the ACT or SAT?

If you normally receive accommodations in school, such as extended test taking time or interpreting services, we recommend that you request those services for the ACT or SAT as well. For more information, visit ACT and SAT on the Web.

How do I buy my books if VR is paying for them?

Go to the Barnes & Noble college bookstore at RIT. Go to any register. Ask if they have your VR book authorization. If yes, go buy your books.

When is the deadline for applications?

We must receive all your application materials prior to June 1 to be considered for admission the following fall. However, we strongly encourage you to submit all materials by February 1 for acceptance into your first choice program. You must submit your application and academic records by February 1 to be considered for some merit scholarships. See the application timetable for further details.
