Counseling & Academic Advising Services

In the NTID associate degree programs, counselors typically have offices in the academic areas where students take many of their courses. This provides easy access for students to see their counselors. These counselors provide career and personal counseling as well as academic advisement.

In the bachelor's degree programs, the NTID counselors are often located in or near the bachelor program in another college of RIT. These counselors only provide career and personal counseling. Students enrolled in bachelor's degree programs will work with their assigned advisor in their home college. Tutoring in a variety of courses is available from the NTID support faculty assigned to that college.
