FAQ

How much is tuition?

RIT is truly an affordable choice. Because RIT receives special federal support for deaf and hard-of-hearing students, you can get a top-quality education at a substantially reduced rate. Because RIT receives special federal support, students who are deaf or hard of hearing pay less than one-half of RIT’s regular tuition rate. Hearing students studying ASL-English Interpretation or the MSSE program also receive this reduced tuition rate.

What is the difference between SVP and NSP?

SVP is the College of NTID Orientation program.  NSP is the New Signer's Program - designed to help students who do not know any sign language.  It is an educational/immersion experience to give our "oral" students a jump start in picking up ASL.  This program occurs BEFORE the SVP Orientation program.

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.
