How do I buy my books if VR is paying for them?
Go to the Barnes & Noble college bookstore at RIT. Go to any register. Ask if they have your VR book authorization. If yes, go buy your books.
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!
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.
