Visiting Our Campus

Campus visits are the best way to experience all the possibilities RIT can offer you. Come see what awaits you at RIT.

Visit and We’ll Waive Your Application Fee

We believe that visiting the campus is so important that we will waive your $65 application fee if you attend an open house or schedule a personalized visit to campus through the NTID Office of Admissions before you apply for admission. It’s our way to encourage you to explore our vibrant community and discover for yourself if RIT/NTID is right for you.

Open House

Come to Open House and find out why choosing RIT/NTID means a superior education, a unique college experience and the right fit for you!

Schedule a Visit

If our Open House dates aren't convenient for you, you can schedule a personalized visit instead. We recommend that you schedule your visit at least two weeks in advance so that we can set up appointments for you with the appropriate faculty and staff members.

Online Information Sessions

For those of you who can’t make it to campus, we host several online information sessions throughout the year. All online sessions will be accessible with sign language interpreting and voice, and may include captioning.

Off-Campus Information Sessions

Deaf and hard-of-hearing high school students and their parents are invited to attend an information session and breakfast. You’ll learn about RIT’s outstanding academic, social and personal development opportunities for deaf and hard-of-hearing students. Parents of current deaf and hard-of-hearing RIT students will be in attendance to answer questions and share information about their experiences with RIT.
