When will I get my class schedule?
You will take the placement tests and go through sampling first. If you have not already been accepted to a major, you will apply to one OR come into the Career Exploration Studies program. When you attend your new department meeting, you will get your new fall schedule. Please pass this information onto your VR counselor. You will have full-time status.
Can I request test accommodations when taking the ACT or SAT?
What services are available to me in the classroom?
If you take NTID courses and programs, instructors will communicate directly with you using a variety of communication strategies, including sign language, spoken language, fingerspelling, printed/visual aides, Web-based instructional materials and individual tutoring. The faculty member is responsible for facilitating communication in the classroom.
If you take courses and programs in the other colleges of RIT, you can request sign language interpreting services, assistive listening systems, real-time captioning services or notetaking. Alternative services also will be provided as required.
RIT/NTID provides one of the most accessible education communities in the world for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
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.
