FAQ

What if I need an emergency loan to buy books?

Schedule an appointment with the NTID Financial Services Coordinator.

What services are available to me in the classroom?

If you take NTID courses and programs, instructors will communicate directly with you using a variety of communication strategies, including sign language, spoken language, fingerspelling, printed/visual aides, Web-based instructional materials and individual tutoring. The faculty member is responsible for facilitating communication in the classroom.

If you take courses and programs in the other colleges of RIT, you can request sign language interpreting services, assistive listening systems, real-time captioning services or notetaking. Alternative services also will be provided as required.

RIT/NTID provides one of the most accessible education communities in the world for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.

 

Can I take the SAT instead of the ACT?

Yes, either test is acceptable. We recommend that students who are deaf or hard of hearing take the ACT because research has shown that deaf students perform better on this test than the SAT. To learn more about the tests and the dates they are being offered, visit ACT or SAT on the Web.

Student Ambassadors
