NTID assigns faculty to provide tutoring, academic/career advising, and personal counseling for deaf and hard-of-hearing students enrolled in courses and programs in the other colleges of RIT. These faculty are skilled at working with students of all communication orientations, including those who do not use sign language as well as those who communicate in ASL.
Tutoring, which may happen in an individual or group setting, is one of the fundamental academic support services for deaf and hard-of-hearing students at RIT. Professional tutors are NTID faculty with expertise in specific disciplines associated with each of the colleges of RIT.
NTID faculty advisors assist deaf and hard-of-hearing students in the other colleges of RIT with registration, course selection and career planning. They work closely together with RIT faculty, staff and administration, as well as NTID Access Services, Admissions, RIT Student Services, Financial Aid and related NTID programs or external agencies.
The NTID Counseling and Academic Advising Department assigns personal counselors to work with tutors and advisors to form a comprehensive system of support for deaf and hard-of-hearing students in all aspects of their college life.
