Tuition & Financial Aid

FAQ

What if Barnes & Noble does not have my VR authorization?

If the bookstore does not have your VR authorization, send your new class schedule and booklist with costs to your VR counselor (you can find your booklist at rit.bncollege.com-click textbooks). Email your VR counselor to ask why you don't have book authorization. Purchase your books and pay for them yourself. Keep the original reciept so you can get a refund later (if your VR covers books).

How do I apply for Vocational Rehabilitation financial aid?

Contact your local Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) in your home state.

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.

Because RIT/NTID receives special federal support, deaf and hard-of-hearing students enrolled in any undergraduate degree program pay less than one-half of RIT’s regular tuition. The reduced tuition rate also applies for students enrolled in the ASL-English Interpretation program.

Deaf and hard-of-hearing students enrolled in graduate degree programs also pay a reduced tuition rate. This also applies to hearing students enrolled in the Master of Science program in Secondary Education of Students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.
