Request Information

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


Which immunizations are required?

You need to provide proof of 2 doses of MMR vaccine, 3 doses of Hepatitis B vaccine, 1 dose of tetanus booster within the past 10 years, 1 dose of Meningococcal vaccine. Failure to do this will result in a hold being put on your account, which will prevent you from registering for fall semester. Don’t wait! If you don’t have the documents, contact your doctor today. Please go to the Student Health Center website for more details and to download a form, if needed. You will need to show this form to your physician.

Can I begin the ASLIE program at RIT/NTID any time during the academic year?

The American Sign Language-English Interpretation program follows a sequential course plan, including ASL I-VII and core interpreting courses. Because this course sequence begins in the fall semester, you are not permitted to begin the program during the spring or summer semesters.

What can I bring?

This depends partially on where you will be living. Here are some printable checklists for the residence halls and the RIT Inn & Conference Center.

You can ship your belongings to: 

Student Name
5000 Nathaniel Rochester Hall
Rochester, NY  14623

Do NOT ship your boxes/packages or other mail to this address until ONE WEEK prior to your move-in date for SVP.  If your packages arrive any earlier, the post office may NOT accept the packages and ship them back to your return address!  Please contact the NRH Post Office if you have any questions.

***Remember, FedEX or UPS or DHL do not deliver to post offices, so you should not put a P.O. box # on the label.
