FAQ

Can I have a car on campus? What transportation is available on campus?

All students including freshmen are allowed to bring a car to campus. Public Safety requires all cars to be registered and have a permit affixed to them. There is enough space for all students to park on campus. You will need to register your car with Public Safety or you can go to the Public Safety office and fill out the form.

You don't need a car here at college because it's easy to get around campus and the Rochester area. Free shuttles travel campus daily to help students get from one end of the campus to another. There are also free shuttles that go from campus to area malls and stores on the weekends. There are two public transit buses that come to campus that students can use for a fee.

How long do parents generally stay?

Because all workshops/meetings are optional for parents, it is up to you if you'd like to stay for a few days or leave after your student moves into his/her dorm room. However, please know that your student will be taking placement tests (check their schedule on Move-In Day). So, please do say your well-wishes so that the student can settle in and prepare for the placement tests, classes, etc.

Why do I need to apply through NTID's Office of Admissions?

Applying through NTID's Office of Admissions means you will be eligible for NTID's tuition rate. Because RIT receives special federal support, students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing pay about one-third of RIT's regular tuition rate. NTID's admissions staff are experienced in working with deaf and hard-of-hearing students. It doesn't matter which RIT college you wish to attend, the NTID Admissions Office can help your application process go more smoothly!

Fall Open Houses

All prospective students and their families are invited to spend a day on the RIT campus (8:00am - 4:30pm). During an Open House visitors are able to meet faculty, tour campus, residence halls and academic departments, and have your financial aid, support and access services and admissions questions answered. Upon receipt of your registration, a confirmation packet will be mailed to you with an agenda, parking pass and a map of the campus. And when you visit, we will waive your $60 application fee.
