What can I study at RIT/NTID? What majors do you offer?

RIT offers more than 200 outstanding programs in business, engineering, art and design, science and mathematics, liberal arts, photography, hotel management, computer science, information technology and other areas. Few universities provide RIT's variety of career-oriented studies.

RIT is dedicated to providing superior career preparation for students with hearing loss. This has attracted excellent faculty to RIT and has led to the development of academic programs that combine outstanding teaching, a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences, modern classroom and research facilities, and work experience gained through the university's cooperative education program. RIT is consistently ranked among top universities in U.S. News & World Report: America's Best Colleges.


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.

What is the process for transfer students?

You can apply for transfer admission at any time. We do not require that transfer students have an associate degree. Some programs have restrictions on entry term, so please contact the NTID Office of Admissions Office at 585-475-6700 (voice/TTY) or toll-free in the U.S. and Canada at 1-866-644-6843 (voice/TTY) for more information.

Transfer requirements vary depending on the program to which you apply. For specific requirements, send your transcripts from all previous colleges to the NTID Office of Admissions along with your application so that our admissions counselors can advise you on what is needed.
