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!
What types of financial aid are available?
Financial aid may include student loans, student employment, combinations of grant-in-aid, Vocational Rehabilitation and federal and state grants that are available for students in need. RIT's Financial Aid Office has more information.
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.
