FAQ

What information do I have to send to my VR counselor every semester?

You need to send a copy of your financial aid award letter, class schedule, student bill, book list and grades.

When will I get my class schedule?

You will take the placement tests and go through sampling first. If you have not already been accepted to a major, you will apply to one OR come into the Career Exploration Studies program. When you attend your new department meeting, you will get your new fall schedule. Please pass this information onto your VR counselor. You will have full-time status.

What is an "official audiogram?"

The audiogram should include the date it was performed, the signature of the audiologist who performed the test, and all other information as stated on the Audiogram Form. Audiograms should have been done within the past three years. The form may be copied and sent electronically, mailed in, or faxed to us at 585-475-2696.

Students and CounselorsOur admission process is a personal one. Each application is reviewed holistically for strength of academic preparation, performance on standardized tests, counselor recommendations and your personal career interests. We seek applicants from all geographical, social, cultural, economic and ethnic backgrounds.

Deaf and hard-of-hearing students are required to submit an audiogram to qualify for admission.
