FAQ

How do I apply for other scholarships?

There are links to scholarship searches here. Be sure to apply early!

Where can I use a microwave?

There is a microwave located in SDC 1400 (behind The Grind coffee shop on the first floor of the Student Development Center). There is also a microwave in The Commons next to the beverage dispenser.

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.

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.

Ready to apply? Three ways to get started:

  1. You can request application materials and we'll send them to you via postal mail,
  2. complete the application online via the RIT admissions portal, or

Choose the application method that's best for you!
