FAQ

What do industry experts say about RIT?

RIT's reputation as one of the nation's top universities has been acknowledged by leading college guides and industry publications. As you search for the right university, consider what these experts have to say about RIT.

U.S. News & World Report has consistently rated RIT among America’s “best buys” in college education:

  • For more than 20 years, RIT has ranked first or second in Academic Reputation among regional universities in the North.
  • Our College of Engineering has been ranked in the top five master's degree level engineering colleges in the nation.
  • Our College of Business has been ranked among the top 50 business schools in the United States.
  • Our School of Photographic Arts & Sciences has been ranked first among all MFA-photography programs in the country.

Money magazine has rated RIT one of its top 15 “Best Values” for universities that specialize in science and technology programs.

The National Science Foundation has designated our College of Science as a national site for undergraduate research.

In a recent list of “101 Cool Campus Activities,” College Bound magazine chose seven popular activities at RIT, including our Swing Dance Club, Mini Baja Team, and ESPN Sports Center desk.

“RIT is an extremely challenging school that offers career-minded students a great background in a wide variety of technical fields. Students feel their practical degrees and on-the-job experiences will serve them well in today’s tough job market.” — The Insider’s Guide to Colleges

“This is a fast-paced, high-tech school for go-getters who already know where they want to be. After a rigorous education, more than 90 percent of RIT graduates go into the job market, with a significant boost from the school’s cooperative education program.” — Fiske Guide to Colleges

“For science and technology, RIT is a superior choice. RIT also has an excellent liberal arts program since students must understand both technological developments and philosophical and ethical issues presented by technology.” — Guide to 101 Best Values in America’s Colleges and Universities

“The excellent cooperative education program, required in most majors, has placed printing management students aboard the QE2 cruise liner, turning out menus and the daily newspaper, and photography students at NASA, developing photos of Neptune. In sum, RIT is Rich In Treasures, at a price that, with the help of cooperative earnings, doesn't send most students or their families to the poor house.” — Barron's Best Buys in College Education

I want to know ahead of time how many of my college transfer credits will be accepted. How can I find out?

You must submit official college transcripts from all previous colleges along with your application. Transfer credits are awarded based on grade and appropriateness to your program. Upon admission, you will be sent a complete listing of transfer credits awarded.

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.
