Vocational Rehabilitation

FAQ

Is there transportation to or from the airport, train station, or bus station?
RIT does not supply transportation to the airport, train station or bus station. Students/families should plan on taking a cab/taxi (cost approximately $20 - $40). If you or your student know of someone arriving (or going) to the airport, train station, or bus station around the same time, they could share the cost of the cab/taxi.
What about library facilities?

RIT's Wallace Library is a multimedia center offering a vast array of resource materials. The library provides access to 250 electronic databases, more than 36,000 electronic journals and 75,000 e-books. Resource materials include more than 12,000 audio, film and video titles and more than 500,000 books and print journals.

Can I begin the ASLIE program at RIT/NTID any time during the academic year?

The American Sign Language-English Interpretation program follows a sequential course plan, including ASL I-VII and core interpreting courses. Because this course sequence begins in the fall semester, you are not permitted to begin the program during the spring or summer semesters.

Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) provides services to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing or to those who have disabilities and who need help to qualify for or to find a job. VR may assist with vocational training or college. VR services may include financial assistance, employment planning, counseling, transportation, and job placement assistance. A VR counselor, who determines eligibility for services, is assigned to each individual requesting assistance. States have various names for VR, and services vary depending on need and the state in which a student lives.

If you have questions about VR related to RIT/NTID, please contact the NTID Student Financial Services office.
