FAQ

How do I apply for NTID scholarships?

You do not have to apply. Scholarships are automatically awarded based on your cumulative GPA and department nominations. Students who receive scholarships will be notified by mail during the summer. The scholarship also will appear on your financial aid award letter.

Where can I mail a letter?

The RIT Post Office is located in Nathaniel Rochester Hall (Building 43) across from the Corner Store.

When should I apply?

If you’re interested in applying to the American Sign Language-English Interpretation (ASLIE) program, there are two application deadlines for you to consider:

  • Regular Decision: If you submit all application materials by February 1, you will receive notification of an admission decision by March 15. (Regular decision is available for freshman and transfer students)

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.

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.

  1. You can request application materials and we'll send them to you via postal mail,
