FAQ

How do I apply for financial aid?

The first step in applying for financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Additional information on financial aid and scholarships can be found at the RIT Office of Financial Aid.

If I paid for my books myself, how do I get a refund?

After you get your book authorization from VR, go to Barnes & Noble with your original receipt. Barnes & Noble will give you a refund.

Caution: If you lose your receipt, you will not get paid back!

How do I apply for other scholarships?

There are links to scholarship searches here. Be sure to apply early!
