FAQ

What services are available to help me find a job or co-op?

Deaf and hard-of-hearing students and graduates benefit from our employment specialists who travel coast to coast connecting with employers to create a climate for successful job placement for deaf and hard-of-hearing students. RIT professionals network with employers to build relationships and educate them about the value of hiring deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals.

Some other ways our employment specialists contribute to student success include:

Students received more than 3,000 hours of employment advising from NTID Center on Employment staff last year.

A Job Search Process course provides preparation in resume writing, correspondence, and dressing for success; networking and contacting employers; and interviewing and evaluating job offers.

Students seeking co-ops or nearing graduation can take advantage of valuable interviewing experience during practice job interviews conducted by faculty, staff and community volunteers.

Our on-campus RIT/NTID job fairs give employers interested in enhancing the diversity of their workforce an opportunity to meet and interview deaf and hard-of-hearing RIT/NTID students. Some of the employers who have hired RIT/NTID co-op students and graduates include:  Microsoft, NASA, IBM, Sprint, HSBC, the U.S. Department of Defense, JP Morgan Chase, Merck, Walt Disney World, and many more.

Can I pick my roommate?
Our residence hall assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis, depending upon the postmark date of your admission deposit and residence hall contract.

If you know someone who also will be attending RIT as an incoming student, and you would like to live with that friend, indicate this information on the residence hall contract. Any request for a specific roommate must be mutual. Requests should be received by May 1. We will make every effort to honor all requests. Please note that your preference cannot be guaranteed.

RIT offers a variety of room types, and room assignments are made by staff members in RIT's Housing Operations office. Entering students are assigned to double rooms. A limited number of single rooms are available for upper-class students.
How is RIT/NTID different from other colleges and universities?

With more than 1,200 deaf and hard-of-hearing students and 16,000 hearing students on campus, RIT/NTID offers you a unique opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds! Our students come to RIT/NTID from all over the United States and the world, bringing with them a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. Find out why RIT is the right fit for them.
