FAQ

As a student in the American Sign Language-English Interpretation program, will I qualify for RIT/NTID’s reduced tuition rate?

As a student in the ASLIE program, you will receive a substantially reduced tuition rate. Because RIT/NTID receives support from the federal government, students in the ASLIE program pay about one-third of RIT’s regular tuition. At RIT/NTID, you receive a world-class private university education at a public university price. For more information about tuition rates, visit www.rit.edu/ntid/tuition.

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.
