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 size are the beds?

The dorm room beds are Twin XL. Some stores have the opportunity to buy where you are and they will be in a store here, when you arrive (Ship to Store). For example, you go on-line with WalMart to order some bedding or dorm supplies. There will be an option for you to choose to have it shipped to the Henrietta, NY store. Simply pick it up when you arrive or during your stay.

How do I apply for financial aid?

The first step in applying for financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Additional information on financial aid and scholarships can be found at the RIT Office of Financial Aid.
