For a limited time, all qualified students in the MSSE program will be eligible to receive full tuition support (U.S. citizens only) for up to two years, providing they remain in good academic standing.
This is made possible through a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education that ends December 31, 2016. If you have not completed your studies before the grant expires, you will continue to receive a substantially reduced tuition rate. Because RIT receives special federal support, you will pay only about one-third of RIT's regular tuition. Visit graduate tuition and fees for more information.
Beyond this special grant and reduced tuition, RIT offers a full range of traditional financial aid programs and a number of innovative financing plans. Approximately 60 percent of our full-time graduate students receive financial aid awards from RIT. A student's financial need is determined by analysis of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. RIT has four general categories of financial aid: scholarships, grants, loans and employment. An applicant for financial aid is considered for each of these categories.
