Tuition & Financial Aid


If I paid for my books myself, how do I get a refund?

After you get your book authorization from VR, go to Barnes & Noble with your original receipt. Barnes & Noble will give you a refund.

Caution: If you lose your receipt, you will not get paid back!

How do I know if my financial aid application is completed?

You can find this information on the RIT Financial Aid Self-Service website.

What information do I have to send to my VR counselor every semester?

You need to send a copy of your financial aid award letter, class schedule, student bill, book list and grades.

Because RIT/NTID receives special federal support, deaf and hard-of-hearing students enrolled in any undergraduate degree program pay less than one-half of RIT’s regular tuition. The reduced tuition rate also applies for students enrolled in the ASL-English Interpretation program.

Deaf and hard-of-hearing students enrolled in graduate degree programs also pay a reduced tuition rate. This also applies to hearing students enrolled in the Master of Science program in Secondary Education of Students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.

At RIT/NTID, we pride ourselves on making a great education truly affordable. You get a world-class private university education at a public university price!

*Tuition rates are for U.S. students only.
