How much ASL should I know?
For direct entry into the interpreting program, you are required to demonstrate the skill equivalent to a typical semester-long ASL I course. Prior to the start of the academic year, you will take an ASL course placement interview with a member of the ASLIE faculty via video chat (e.g. Skype, FaceTime, etc.). This video chat will determine if you satisfy the ASL pre-requisite and where in the ASL sequence you will start. However, if you have little or no experience with ASL, you will be placed in ASL I for the fall semester, ASL II for spring semester, and you will be required to take ASL III during the summer session at RIT/NTID.
What is the RIT/NTID code for ACT?

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.
